Hey all! Hope everyone around the world is doing alright. Question at hand:

What would you pay for a basket case CB1100F? I have the opportunity to pick up one here in Texas, USA. It is complete and in decent shape. However the engine is out and scattered. Seller is asking $1000. All parts appear to be there, but you never know. Any thoughts on a price? Appreciate it!

All there... yeah right; 900.
Why is the engine pulled... 700.
And the forks are pitted, side covers nipples are broken off, dinged tank... 650.
The bike was dropped... 600.
Right at the neck welds, the paint is chipped off from a crash and is bent...400.

$400 parts bike. 600 to get it up and running. The crap shoot is, what and who is broke/seized inside?

Drop the oil pan. Clean? 600. Bent frame? 500 take it or leave it.

If it turns over, I'd say it's worth his asking price and I'd pick it up if it were local to me. The cylinder block alone is worth 500, but separating it is not easy. What are you going to do with it? Rebuilding the engine alone would be 2-3000 grand, and the rest of the bike could easily match that. If you really want it, I wouldn't waste time haggling over 3 or 400 bucks.

+3 - if it's pretty much all there, then $1000 isn't bad. A $400 parts bike? Not any more unless the seller really likes you. Sometimes there are deals out there, but not very often.

If the cylinder block is there and still on the stock bore and no broken fins? The cylinder block alone is worth $500.00 to me by itself. You figure it out. Some people are just stuck in the 80's and think everything will or should be cheap but the deal is they are the cheap ones. Haha

Keep it in a wheelie, Jim

+1 What he said. You need to know why was the bike parked? Was it still running, if not, why?? Has it been kept reg non-op or are there fees due. Pulling the cyl block w/o damage is a tricky affair - too easy to wreck the fins and even gouge the bores. I know that first hand.

In 2011, I bought a member's bike that had recently snapped rod #3 and holed the cases - before that it ran great - I paid $600.00 for it. Today, I'd think maybe $700.00 or less. What shape are the ignition parts in?? Ignitors, charging rotor, etc - major weak spot on DOHCs.

Good Luck, Ed
