I saw that yesterday. It was a little over $4K. Doesn't seem like that bad of deal if we assume that the damage is just cosmetic.

I've driven down to look at a couple of Duc's before and most of her stuff is cosmetic.

How much do you figure to bring it up to pristine condition? I'm banking $6K or $7K. Probably less depending on where you buy the parts.

Is that a maxipad holding the right fairing together?

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

Either he's stupid, and doesn't know what he has, or he's clever, and realizes he can reach a greater market by marketing it in the more frequented ducati section.

I was gonna start a thread on this bike asking for an education on what's going on.

The bid on this bike is now over 8 grand. Looking at the damage it appears to be cosmetic but a lot of it at that. It needs a tank, airbox, side panels, seat cowl, footpegs and so on.

I could see if someone wanted this bike to build a track bike then a lot of that stuff doesn't matter, but for someone to buy it and then need to fix it I could see 3 or 4 thousand dollars worth of parts going into it even at used prices. Aren't these bikes selling for something in the 15K range unmolested with clean titles?

What's the rationale behind spending the big money on these salvage bikes?

There is no rational for this. People get too excited with e-bay sometimes and make stupid decisions IMHO, this would be a perfect example of one

IMHO this bike is worthless other than a track bike and a bit pricey for that. Subtle things tell me the damage is worse than just "cosmetic". But some person out there see's it as a way to own an MV for cheap, at least until they get to the rebuilding aspect of it.
