How much could you make if you bought a new one and broke it up

There only 6000 pounds new, "The White is now scratching his cheak pondering if he could do this?"

I can see the rush now at Hopetoun house :rolling:

The bike would be new whitie, so the parts would be new also

double all those above prices surely:D

and you can afford to chuck the chain in the bin

years ago MCN took a look at this and they found it was some horendous price to buy all the Honda Fireblade parts seperately. Something like twice the whole bike:confused:

I remember the MCN article - it was a cbr 600 the priced all the parts from a honda dealer to build one from scratch and the total was something like £16k when the bike list price new was £6k !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
