    Agreed. I inquired about a price for the bike and the chair, but no reply yet.

    FYI: He wants 7k for the pair. Which I really don't think is crazy for what it is. It's just a little too far away for me to bite at that price/condition/build quality. If it had a /2 or /5 speedo, maybe. /6 and up speedos are just an eye sore to me on those bikes, and wouldn't be a cheap thing to swap out. If it was local though I'd at least go check it out in person, and probably talk myself into it if I could get him to about 6500 for the pair. Just my opinion though.

    Parts lot in Nashville. Thinking of dropping in and seeing it tommorow.

    No title on the R65, and he seems to value the /5 front end and wheel the most.

    What's it all worth?

    Just my opinion,..... In just BMW parts, there's not a lot there that's worth anything. It might be all good stuff but how much can you use or sell? The fairing isn't worth anything but takes up a lot of storage room. The /2 solo seat (depending on it's brand) is a good useful or sellable item. The rear fenders aren't worth much but the front fender is. It would have been nice if the fork brace was on the /5 forks, with the brace and axle, you could see if they were straight.

    Without looking at the parts real close, I'd say they were worth $600 - $800. The R65, if it's running and titled should have an offer of $1500 - $2000, less if it's not running or titled. So, I think a fair offer would be about $2100 to $2500 for the whole kit and kaboodle.

    Getting a title in TN is easy for a bike that's over 30yrs old. Read up in a certificate of ownership. I know the seller. He's a good dude.
