Monoposto parts and a gt1000

Dilemma

I’ve come across a low mileage monoposto that’s taken a front end hit. I’ve ride a gt1000 with higher mileage.. my original thoughts were to part out the mono here and fund some other things, but now I’m thinking a dry clutch and low mile power plant may be a good thing to hang onto..
What the collective thoughts on demand for some mono parts?
And what’s some thoughts on switching to the dry clutch?
Or just take all the parts and make a mono?

You're probably taking most of the valuable bits, the motor/clutch and swingarm.

I might be interested in some of the parts. I'm looking for the front fender, fender bracket (if they survived the crash) rear-set head guards, some of the seat mount hardware, and the crankcase ventilation hose. But those aren't very valuable.

GTs are pretty durable machines. Take care of 'em, and they keep on going. I get the temptation of hanging onto different/cool parts, but ask yourself this first: What do I want to ride?

You should be able to peddle the mono parts for a good profit, they're fewer in number and thus scarce. Plus if you REALLY want the dry clutch rattle you've pretty much got to go that way.

I've got a bunch of parts in my garage that I bought because they were "cool", and yet in some cases years later they're still sitting in my garage. I found out I didn't really want them, and now I'm stuck with selling them off. You haven't said much about your bike, if you haven't experienced a Sport Classic with lighter wheels then funding them should be something to consider?

As I said at the top, prioritize what YOU want; you'll likely be happiest that way.

If you plan on selling the monoposto, let me know

my 2009 took a hit from the side so I am looking for another bike to rebuild with my undamaged parts.
