Had a thought. Could you buy it from them and fix it yourself? Do any custom work yourself.

You know that may be worth looking into. I know there are guys around that do that as a side business, buy bikes that were in accidents fix them up and sell them. I have the ability and tools to do that and I should have no trouble getting it done over the winter :unsure: I am going to look into the numbers on this.

Only thing that comes to mind is your state and how they deal with the title. Pa will make it a reconstructed title and you can never sell it as a regular title.

Yep same here it would be salvage title. The value would drop a few thousand for sure, I came across a couple when I was looking in the spring and some recently in my search. There was one done up really nice for sale a couple weeks ago that I would have considered and it sold pretty fast.

You gave me the ideal and now you are trying to talk me out of it lol. No I really appreciate the input. I could see dealers not wanting to take a salvage bike, they like to advertise that the bike is perfect. And they would also have to price accordingly which may make their other bikes over priced(which for the most part they are lol). But not being able to trade in wouldn't be an issue for me as if I went this rout I would keep the bike for a long time and then sell it privately when the time came.

I wasn't trying anything! Lol not sure where your located and some states are cool and some are not.

Its weird that, some people look at a salvage title on a bike like its voodoo or something. But these same people will buy a car that was totaled and repaired and be fine with it. Like the salvage moniker is horrible.

Never understood that..

Ya I am in Saskatchewan. The only issue would be that it would need a different safety inspection to be registered and insured, not a huge deal. But ya it is one of those things where some people will shy away from it so the value goes down. I may have to look into what I would get for value from insurance as well, God forbid another freak accident happens.
