I am thinking of listing it on ebay the next time they have one of the $.50 listing days. I do not want to give it away so i am not listing it without a reserve. I can list it with a minimum starting bid on a .50 day and it is WAY cheaper. here is a list of parts.

87 cr500 engine. NEW topend and crank seals. runs great.
modified CR500 FMF pipe and silencer (not 250r stuff)
uni air filter
rebuilt front forks
steel braided front brake line and CR500 master cylinder
NOS head light
NOS front fender
NOS shrouds
NEW 500r decals and frame decals
+6" lonestar swinger
lonestar billet double wide bearing carrier
new sunstar/rethenal sprockets 38/14
new DID X ring chain
all brakes work
frame painted dupoint dodge viper red
OEM seat with no tears (NICE)
nice OEM rear fender
kicker works great and it will start in a couple kicks
86 350x rear rims and 85 350c front rim
flip up rear fender
PRM rear grab bar
lots of custom fab time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i am sure i am forgetting something but that is most of it. i know what i have in it and i will not take less. it is worth more then that in parts. jsut looking for starting bid ideas. thanks!!!!!!!!!

check my sig for a quick pic

Why sell it? Why spend countless hours building a machine that you want only to sell it? It sounds like a nice bike. Something you would want to keep. I, personally don't care what my bikes are worth since I will never sell them. Way too much time, effort, and personal touches to sell them. I finally got each of them the way I like them. It sounds like yours is the same for you. Why waste the time and money only to sell if for less than it's worth to you? Just my 2 cents.

i built it for fun. i enjoy tinkering. also my little 5 acres is no where near enough land to let the 500 stretch out!! :)

Well, then my guess is you will get $1500 or so on Ebay. Just a guess. You would get more if you parted it out.l

ChrisD is right..
And if you built it for fun, keep it and ride it for fun. You don't have to sell it just because you can't reach the top speed. Half of the time I am riding my Z or R, I'm just putting around.. not going full out. Keep it. If you have the money to keep it, and you aren't selling it because you are in dire need of money, I would definately keep it. You'll regret it later!! And just think.. if you ever want another 500R, you'll have to build it because you can't buy them like that..

id hold onto it untill a real atc conneseur gets wind of it. on ebay they'l probly see it as just another implanted motor, but its argueably the quickest thing on wheels.

im sure some guys around here would be intrested in it.

After seeing a custom 250r at over $4000 on ebay, I would imagine that your 500r would go for more.

That bike is sweet, everything is clean and sleek on it, I dont think you would have any trouble getting the money you want for it.

man you should really keep it that would be the perfect dune machine and you won't get close to what you put in it not to mention all the time and sweat put in it

Set the reserve high start the auction out low and sit back and see what happens..You can always lower the reserve 24 hours before the auction ends....if it doesnt hit reserve you could always second chance offer it.

I highly recommend putting it on ebay, with the Best Offer option. There is not other way to sell stuff on there, then you will know what people are willing to give, instead of wasted money listing it several times with the reserve not met.

SO you just built it for the project? Why wouldn't you keep it and use it in other places??? If I built a 500R (which I WILL) I would keep it forever unless something super important popped up! Like I find somebody selling a tiger 500 or something like that......... Anyway just my opinion...
