  • To restore or bin? -Old ZX2r and old 250RR

    Soooo.
    I have a smoked-in CBR250rr, 98 model I think and what I am pretty sure is a 92 ZX2r (could be a 'gray import')

    Both need new fairings, battery and a few little bits and pieces lost in crashes, the 250RR has a crack in the frame so I am pretty certain that's a write off (I dont want to sell some poor bastard a death trap for a few bucks).
    Both were running well before smoking in but haven't been run or turned over for at least 18 months.

    For the ZX2R, I can eBay fairing sets for 600ish bucks and tear down the engine and other necessary work myself, but I wonder is it worth it to sell? Considering a new 250 now days is 6 gorillas I'd be lucky to get 3 for it?

    So 3 options:
    1. Sell them to wreckers for like 100 a pop (probably)
    2. Strip them down and sell bits on eBay
    3. Restore and sell

    What do people reckon?
    Want awesome looking headlights or other lights? PM me

    Lock your shit up!

          Option 2 if you want to maximise bucks
          Option 3 if you want to go broke, but obviously worth it if you want a project or particularly love these things. Just be ready to bleed money you'll never see again though.

          Option 1 is for the lazy. You'd probably get very good money by parting it out and listing parts on eBay etc.

            Thanks for the replies fellas!
            Roger, the thought crossed my mind many a time!
            As for you guys interested in the CBR, I will either put a price together and PM you or put it up in the FS section, bear with me if I take a while!
            I also forgot to mention both are De-Rego'd, sorry.

                  whats wrong with the zxr engine ? thats an easy $500 there if it runs fine. if it has major problems its not worth it as u cant get parts.

                      Damn, didn't expect so much interest, awesome!
                      I will put the zx2r in the FS section (whole bike only)
                      UPG has dibs on the CBR250RR (first in first served)
                      Both bikes were running fine a bit over 18 months ago, as stated they haven't been turned over since then.
                      The ZX2R comes with a new cam chain and tensioners, I was going to replace them myself but never got round to it, also wasn't a serious problem, I just wanted to quiet it a little, I'm picky like that.

                      Id better go do some research on reasonable prices!
                      Edit: will be uncovering them both tomorrow afternoon for pics.

                        Crap, just realised that I cant make a thread in the FS section till I've been round for a freakin' month
                        (discovered while trying to sell my old 600rr - haha)
                        is it possible to contact mods and get around this or should i just wait it out? >.<
