Just got my settlement offer for the September collision and my '86 has been totaled. The appraised value of my bike came back at $6,123 (value prior to the accident) and the repair estimate was $11,297. Not sure what I'm going to do, but I'm certain I'm buying it back for $919.
A very generous forum member has helped me collect most all of the hard to get parts. I'm now considering repairing the unique existing fairing, installing the aftermarket caddy and new stereo I have now, and repainting to match, the replacement trunk I also have. Probably won't be investing much more to make it look perfect.
I had just gotten all the mechanical / electrical repairs in top working order about three weeks before the collision and fortunately it was more cosmetic body parts that were damaged than anything else. I'm hoping to start a new bike fund with what's left over.
