Whats this worth?

I'm in Michigan. this is a compleate bike that has cases and a title. I robbed all the internals, so what is this pic, with just cases, worth? or just the frame/cases/title worth? I know "whatever you get" but how about a ballpark figure? Thanks I traded a golf car that I thought was worth around $800 for it.

A frame number would help, we need to know what year and what model first. The frame and cyclegear is common for many models and engine configurations.
And an old frame [even though it looks like about '64 500cc] could be bolted up to any part ie '60's shocks will fit an '80's frame, front ends are commonly swapped out due to accidents etc etc

Matching numbers 500, verified straight frame, with completely rebuildable crankcases, and the few rebuildable cycle parts in that shot, MAYBE $500 to someone close by. Otherwise, consider shipping cost up to several hundred dollars if cross-country, and you see where this is going...

Parted out on e-bay might fetch that much, maybe a little more. If you get the perfect buyers needing those exact parts, you COULD make over agrand; then again, it might take a year to get the timing right, with some multiple re-listings to meet your reserve, etc., etc., etc. ad infinitum.

RE

sorry, it's a '66 T100r. matching frame and cases, with title. Frame is straight as far as I can tell. I wanted to trade this bike for motor work on my 58 T100, but some kid keeps bugging me to buy the frame. I would like to keep motor/frame/title together. The only thing I found wrong on this motor, and it was recently rebuilt, was the crank bearing area was worn out. see pic.Thank you guys for your time.

I'd think you'd get more for the matching components, unless this kid is willing to pay big bucks just for the frame. I hate to see matching sets broken up. That crank can be re-ground and an oversize bearing installed, or welded up, re-ground and a standard bearing installed.

I dont want to see it broke up either. I got this to strip and build a chopper. But after reading how important it is to keep #s together I thought it would be better if I found a mismatched lower/frame for my project. Witch I have. ( a 58 350 posted here a few weeks back) But it was'nt compleate, and thats why the missing parts. I know I could probably get more parting it out, but I thought it would be better for the "restorer" to leave all original? parts together. I would rather trade it for motorwork, than sell. Thanks for your time.....

part evertyhing out separately, ebay special. you'll get more money.

as far as the frame and title keep together and sell, most people will but the frame if it has a title so they can use just the title to get the project on the road. revining there frame.

a title is worth $300- $1000 alone, well maybe not that high for a 500cc

I do not condone selling titles, it's illegal in all 50 states.

Title should always follow the frame; try to get a bike titled though any state and you'll see what I mean.

You will get the best money for the frame and engine cases together, everything else can be parted out on e-bay as no big deal.

P.S. e-bay prices are down across the board for typical bike stuff. Rare bikes and parts will always retain thier value. 500s are not rare.

I belive that the title folows the motor up to and including 1969. In 1970 the frames began getting titled..... I'm not realy out to get the most I can get. I know that parted out, most any bike is worth more. I was just looking for a fair value and I think I have that #. Thanks again for all your replys....
