    Ok, I have a '94 CBR F2 600, ~15000 miles

    Problems:
    dead battery
    warped front rotors
    bent front rim
    carbs need cleaned for it to start every time

    I can charge the battery, I have new front rotors, I have a used but unbent front rim, and have a buddy that can go over the carbs real well...

    Should I sell it as is or fix it and then sell it? I also have the service manual for it as well, so even a novice could fix it.

    It's rough looking, definitely a good cheap starter/stunter bike... I'm just torn on what to do. :dunno:

    I figured that would be the case.

    Any idea on asking price? I was thinking in the neighborhood of $1500.

    I'm sure you can get more if it's running and ridding fine.

    www.cycletrader.com or ebaymotors.com. look through those to get a ball park price for your cycle.

    also use kelly blue book and NADA appraisal guides. google those, i'm too lazy to look for the links myself...sorry (going out to the bars soon :p

    Ran pretty well, although that is a very good picture. It is pretty rough, even for a 12 year old bike.
