    im thinking about breaking my bike up after my off last week, I know here are one or two on here that do this but is there anyone else that can throw some light on the do’s/don’t.
    Is it just the frame, forks, wheels and swing arms that go and I’m left with all he other bits for a year or two?
    Any advice would be much appreciated
    Cheers

    What happened with your off? Have a missed a thread? Hope you're OK...

    Ahh mate that sucks. I'm so sorry. I take it's pretty much killed the bike? Did it hit something other than the tarmac?

    It is repairable but I’ve lost interest after putting a big amount into it this time last year

    Understandable. And for me, I'd never feel the same about it after repair.:(

    I’ve not got much experience at all @raphael, would you be able to sell it “complete” as is to avoid having parts hanging around for potentially months/years?

    I probably could but I would imagine at a much lower price?
