How much is a pristine 1990 gsxr 750 gas tank worth?

I'm not trying to sell anything here, just determine worth.

My jackass ex had my bike in his garage. Last night he decided to throw it in the middle of the street and in the process he royally fucked up my perfect, and I mean perfect - not a scratch - tank. It's dented in several places, blahblahblah.

I want to know how much is fair to make him pay me for the tank, the plastics he ruined weren't perfect but they were close. I'm so mad!

I'm having no luck finding one anywhere online for sale so thought I'd ask here. What would you pay? If it matters, it was red/white. http://classic-motorbikes.net/review...GSXR750J-2.jpg

I'll call it first ... bull$hit.

I honestly don't remember but I can tell you I have found 3 on separate occasions and bought them each/all for under/around 200 each.

What's bullshit about it? I'm sorry I don't spend all my time posting on online forums?

Thanks to all of you with helpful answers, I really appreciate it.

Re: How much is a pristine 1990 gsxr 750 gas tank worth?

Hey, I've seen folks post less before... and in a round about way, it was a method of procuring a purchase from a member (without purchasing their Red R) outside of the classifieds forum. It comes right down to this, if you're searching for a really nice "anything"... why not purchase your Red R, and try the correct channel of request.

There's nothing wrong with your initial dialogue, but when you got to the part: "I'm having no luck finding one anywhere online for sale so thought I'd ask here." ... well, it gets awfully close to a WTB thread. Seen it before - been there - got banned.

Keep your sigs fellas - you may want them yourselves.

Re: How much is a pristine 1990 gsxr 750 gas tank worth?

That makes sense. I promise it's not what I'm trying to do. I don't want to buy or sell anything, I just want an idea of the value I lost.

Thanks.

Re: How much is a pristine 1990 gsxr 750 gas tank worth?

No worries... and especially none from me Frankenstein... but moderators tend to look closely at threads that insinuate the idea of a purchase through a search thread. Just wanted to give you a "heads-up"... that's all. No sweat.

I bought a NOS 91 tank from the EU for $600 and was damn glad to pay it, took a year for it to turn up...

Second gen owners have no money. You're lucky to get 50 bucks for a mint tank.

I can see you are fixing yourself some new skirts.
Send me that fairing and I'll keep your cross dressing a secret!
I promise!
