For an insurance company to write off a $100k bike, I shudder to think how much it would cost to repair them.

Ah Hell Stu, buy both, you should be able to get one decent bike out of the two of them and end up with some spares. C'mon you know you want to!

You know me too well ;-) - interesting that it seems to have most parts with them too so it could be a calculated punt and you'd probably pull together 1 decent bike out of them with a track toy left after

But I'd say they'd still want 40-50k each as a reserve and I dont think my credit cards could handle that.

Insurance companies write them off for vaious reasons with OEM pricing being a big factor but there are also a couple of things that contribute to it

1) if the swingarm has a scratch they usually cost up to replace in lieu of painting which blows the costs out
2) being less than 1 year I'd suuggest they had a full replacement policy in place too so now the insurance company will be trying to get back as much as they can for them

Even though I love a challenge I think I'd be biting off too much for these - but then again it would make a great Turismo bike - just need to contact Ventura for a racking system

I think you will find that many of the parts can be replaced with Hyosung parts although in some cases you may need to use a little force to get them to fit.

The pictures show that both will need the front wheel replaced. I seem to recall a review of the bike saying that the wheels for these things retailed at USD10,000. The auction buy price would definitely only be the downpayment.

Of course, I'm sure you'd barely notice the difference if you went with Wobbly's suggestion and just replaced with stock Hyosung parts :)

Make a pretty good motor for a hill climb open wheeler.. or a litre sprint car..

Friend with a hill climber has a gsx1100 tricked out to 1400cc that puts out close to 200 ponies.. these motors get that stock.. and probably would cost similar.

2 down and I would think less than 10 landed????
