Have purchased spare parts here and there and rather keep using them and try to sell of the brand new spares for a premium price should someone be in need.
And looking at spare parts prices its easy to understand that a bike with minor damage is a write off.
Will have removed stuff worth 1,5 times what I paid for the entire bike if I look at what they would cost as spare parts.
Had plans to do some custom work with a rear tank integrated in the subframe but never got around that is why I have a few extra subframes (one is a little twisted tho).
Swing arm was a spare for the -04, the early were weaker then on later models so wanted to get hold of a newer one.
The old bike will be set up with motard wheels and won't see much rough terrain if I keep it.
And if the new parts don't sell they can collect dust until I need them =)
Well won't even be dusty, invested a few dollars worth of bubble wrap and packaging them up since I guess they will be in storage for years unless I wreck and need them.
Hmm lower bolt for the shock is probably in the swing arm I removed, should have extra bolts somewhere need to look in the box with spare bolts next time I visit the bike.
