    Need your opinion on 575 frame

    I have an extra 09 575 frame laying around without swingarm.

    What would be best for reselling -

    Powder coat a custom color and add curent 575 decals?
    Leave stock annodizing?

    Not sure what I wanna do...

    If so I would think you could get a deal on after warranty replacement rr triangle that would let you recoup a little more for the complete frame sale and make it more tempting for someone to buy. Maybe not.

    Otherwise try to sell it outright as is.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Probably right. Now I'm curious and have to check with my buddy I bought mine from. He had to replace the broken carbon rr past warranty before I got the bike from him.

    I think I saw a thread recently with a similar situation as yours. I think they had a '06-'07 frame that broke and had the swing arm. Anyway I think it was only about $100 they paid for the front triangle from private party.

    So I guess I'm reiterating not worth painting the front triangle you have just to try and sell. But to find a swingarm may be worth picking up to be able to sell a complete frame.

    Just my $0.02. Good luck

    ***Was informed around $300 for carbon swingarm. Plus shop time for r&r.***

    Your ad perhaps? Sounds reasonable enough.
