I'll give you my honest estimate, but you won't like it. The unfortunate fact is that you'll never recover your investment, or even close to it. All of that stuff you bought for it is of far more value to you than to anyone else, and won't really add much to the resale value of the bike on the open market.

First, if you paid that much for a YZ426 that needed all of that done to it, you paid about $5-600 more than you should have had to. Now that it's done, you could try asking for $2300 or so and see if you get lucky, but I doubt you'll sell it for more than $1800, if that.

When did you pay $1400, was that years ago? Was it a clapped out bike that needed all this work, or did you just want to build a custom one off bike to ride? Did you do all this work to keep it, or sell it?

Hate to say it, but when people are selling '06 and later 450's for $2000 to $3000, you'll be hard pressed do any better with an '00 426. The only way you're going to see a decent return on this one is to part it out. As a complete bike, even with all your goodies you'll be lucky to get $1500 to $2000.

If I had your bike and I was looking at selling, I'd take all of the aftermarket parts off and replace them with the stockers. That is, assuming you still have the orig. parts. Then sell the parts/bike seperately.

Like others, I'm not trying to be rude or a d*ck but all of those aftermarket parts won't really get you much more $$ than a comparable bike that's all stock. The age of the bike doesn't matter, anytime you spend $$ on aftermarket bling consider that you won't see that money again. Keeping that in mind does influence some of the purchases I make.

Aside from not getting your money out of it, if you sell it you'll have to change your username. :ride:

I have found it chips and then looks terrible, I wont powder coat a bike again, engine parts maybe, but not a frame/swingarm they get hit with rocks too often

That is very true. The second you ride that bike, it is going to look worse than when you started the project !!!
