Part this thing out?

I'm at a crossroads. I picked up a 93 KLR a while back. I thought I'd have the time to restore it and sell it, but I'm just too busy.



It needs a wiring harness, ignition switch, tires, tail light, and an original muffler. Then it will need all the missing plastics. The damn tank has a locking automotive gas cap on it too. Won't twist off, no key.



Part it out? I have no idea what things are worth, and if they would even sell. I guess I'm looking for tips and advice.



Thanks!



Jason

You'll probably have no problem selling the engine and the wheels and maybe suspension parts. After that you are left with a lot of bits that may sell but you will have to be patient. I've parted a bike before and probably wouldn't;t go through that hassle again.

Parting it may net you more money than selling the thing outright as it is now. Just depends how much time and work you want to put into it.

Again what he said ^^^^^

Not to insult you but it's not worth much at all, pre 96 the cylinders are un bore able to 685 maybe the smaller versions, so that limits your buyers, if the head is identical then you may have some $$$ but only IF it is and I have forgotten if it is.....heads are in high demand after the 08 ordeals of cooking oil bearings.......the wheels if straight and the CDI, voltage rectifier......thats all I would try and sell personally, been there done that......so they you have it.....it depend upon how much you have into it doesn't it.....? Sorry....

I'm not looking to make a killing. Just want to recover what I put in it.

You don't have much into it and you would easily get that back for the wheels. If it was mine I'd keep it as an organ donor for a more complete and newer bike. Do you have another KLR beside this one?
