For the price, you could swap out the seat, handlebars & footpegs, and have a nice standard rider. Selling off the fairing, seat, rearsets & clip-ons would net more than you spend on the standard bits, I suspect. About one weekend's work, maybe less than one Saturday if you focus, leaving Sunday for the test ride. Heck, Jag would probably do the swap for you!


I agree. Leaving it as a racer is limiting the market. Old guys with bad backs don't want to mess with a crouch rocket posture. + Paint the tank and side covers and it will sell for $8,000. Or keep it and ride it. You know it is well sorted. Buying to Flip is a dangerous game. Most folks put $10,000 into a bike and get back only $8,000 on the sale. What's in your wallet? :o

I couldn't never un-"racer" it.
Zero interest in owning bike that I don't enjoy having around.

I didn't buy to flip, but did know I was not going to keep it forever.

At the end of the day I'm not buried in it by any means.

Like I said, I want to sell it to free up funds ans space to play with different toys.
I feel I have priced it well and actually more then willing to work with a real buyer on price.
But I'm not desperate to sell and more then happy to spend the spring riding it.

Plan to in a week or so.

Will list it with a starting bid and no reserve.
Unsure what the starting bid will be yet.

The starting bid needs to be the least you would be satisfied with, for letting it go, after all the work you've done to it.
