Re:Waiting on the adjuster. But i seen frame damage. 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
From what I've seen of ebay prices for them parting out R* parts... you could part your bike out for almost the value it was before it wrecked. Serious. Ridiculous prices they get. But that's a lot of time to invest in working all those parts through that long process. It's hard to say what I would do in your shoes. If you were fully covered I think I would take the insur money, buy the bike back, part it out or repair it with the insur money and still be ahead. It is in very good shape for a parting out bike. I'm sorry for whatever happened.

At least keep the sig pic up for us. your bike was an inspiration to us all. Damn it all anyway. So as a builder/customizer or whatever you want to pick as a category for yourself, this is a chance to sculpt a new bike for yourself. Just make sure it is a R* and don't go flipping out and move to the other side of the racks.

Hey, its my answer to everything. Wreck? Chopper. Girlfriend left? Chopper. Wife stayed? Chopper!!!


Sounds reasonable to me!

You know Warden has a stripped down 2003 Roadstar frame just practicing gravity in his Roadstar BarnMajal.

Late to the game, but what's the asking price for the wheels?


The frame is FREE to anyone that wants it.


What's wrong with it?


Nothing. I just got tired of trying to register it with the DMV. It could be registered as a "custom", but not with the current VIN in Wisconsin.

Same as the 01 we did on the pinwall frame. NY issued it a new vin even though we had the frame vin and the title for the parts bike.

Lol. I have another roadie but its not road worthy. i started adding up a short list for getting it up and around looking like a brand new bike with a little flavor and i need at least $2800 to get there. Thats no fairing or bags just a naked cruiser. So whatever happens i have a roadie but if yama mama dont pull her head out of her arse i might go elsewhere for a long distance bike. I cant believe they dont have a full on tour bike that doesnt look like a 80 year old belongs on it to compete with the other guys. Am i asking for to much? Big v twin with cruise, abs, a comfortable seat, with bags and trunk (qr would be nice) a fairing that doesnt look loke a damn afterthought. Im mean have you seen the fairings that come on a "tourer" model strat deluxe or the 1300 v star? It looks like a outer fairing eith some glued in speaker pods and a shelf

Agreed, that's why my next touring bike is going to be a Victory Cross Country.
