The problem with wrecked Desmos is you can't get used parts, so its virtually impossible to put one back together economically--at least not to equal specs. Take this example. If one fork leg is tweaked, how much for a new set? $10,000? This stuff spirals out of control quickly. Looking at the site, I'm amazed how expensive even the more common wrecked bikes are. $6k for a 1098? I know where you can get a great, unharmed one for $8700 right now.

Thank you for posting this!

I'm currently maxed out as the highest bidder, so please, please don't bid against me!!

You have to remember, I have access to these parts, new carbon fairings, exhaust, forks, wheels - no problem!

It's official: Randy's a slut!

But remember, in a few weeks/months, you could buy another one for $10K on the site and between the two you'd have a whole bike...:D:D:D

its because they totalled out the bike. thats going to be a nightmare at the dmv. youll just have to create your own salvage. good luck though, probably wouldnt be a bad idea to check it out first.

Cheap Desmosedici

I almost bid in, as I would not mind driving it around naked without fairings until I repair/replace them. I hesitated due to concerns about steering/suspension and frame issues based on the pics.

Keep us updated on the progress, if you won, and any rebuild issues and progress encountered.

Google once Ridesafely.com and spend a few minutes reading.

It's not all as it seems, been there done that and a public online auction is way down on the food chain for deals.
