It is sad to see such a fine piece of engineering reduced to junk through fault. I know the feeling. Hang in there. You'll find another if the insurance company totals it. by rokrie

I'm not too surprised. The rear frame alone is close to $3000, and if it's at all bent it's considered destroyed.

Depending on what the other damage is, I'd consider buying it back and trying to fix it. The only thing that would make me think twice about that is if the rear wheel was hit and it damaged the final drive. by space

I know - what a waste. I just picked it up today from the shop because the insurance company said they were charging a lot to store it and the adjuster was going to get it. I told them I am interested in buying it back and maybe rebuilding it or have a great spare parts box! The first price they sent me wasn't too bad but I have to include my extras on the bike. It is hard to value a bike like this because they are selling all over the place price wise.

Just hold out for "replacement value" and help them find one to buy for you. It may take time but I would not take a settlement until you do. They're drying up and after 10 years in different operational shape. Good luck my friend. by rokrie

I just got the payout amount and bought the salvaged bike back from insurance. I figure that I have three options:
1. Try to rebuild it and it will always have a branded/rebuilt title and not be worth as much
2. Take a couple of the rims off and replace with stock rims and sell it. I am not sure what it is worth, but I know it can be rebuilt and some states are easier with this sort of thing.
3. Part it out and have backups for all of the major parts for my other HP2.

I have to do some thinking on this one because parts are not getting any easier to find for HP2Es. My wife, who lets me pursue all of my crazy ideas, asked me a good question.

She said, "Do you need two of the same bike and do you need a complete parts bike? Why don't you get something you really like other than an HP2." She mentioned an R9T Urban because I have been doing so much road riding.

I wonder what a salvage but complete HP2 is worth?
Thoughts? ideas?
I figure about 4 or 5 thousand.

The salvage HP2 I sold to a guy that fixed it for less than $1000 he sold eventually for $10,500. Just sayin'... by rokrie

Thank Rorie
Maybe it is worth a little bit more to the right person. If I got $5500 or $6000 I would be happy. I don't want to give it away because it can be fixed and is a nice bike with some minor kinks that still need to be worked out - front suspension, brakes.
