Wrecked my speedy !!!!!!
Just crashed my 04 speedy two weeks ago and got the word from my insurance that they are going to total it ! The damage really is not that bad, but they insist on using only new parts and my local dealer must do the work. The damage mainly is the front rim , brakes, brake lever, forks, and a knee sized dent in the tank. They came up with a crazy price of $6500.00 with labor! That's just insanely high !!! I can do the work myself and Ebay all the parts i need for less than $2000.00. My question to you all is ...is it worth keeping it , fixing it, and trying to get it re-registered as a salvage title ? My friends say that here in Pennsylvania, it's a real pain in the rear to get it retitled. It's a tough decision, take the insurance money and buy another bike ( Speedy or maybe a storm) or fix what i already know and love. Any opinions or help with info on the titling thing would be greatly appreciated.
