Well first off if you EBAY DO NOT use any of their JUNK!!
Just do a simple listing with good details and description and host your own pictures on a free site you can link to, or like me my own site. Do not pay there stupid fees for extra pics or put up with the stupid pages of pics ther do that do not display well for many of us.
As for shipping, figure it out for yourself then put in the shipping cost in your listing!
DO NOT let Ebay figure it for you!
If for example your shipping from FL. then figure cost to ship to WA. and put that or a little less as your shipping price.
Figure the longest distance and estimate your package a little heavier than it will be.
Try not to gouge on the shipping, but at least you cover your butt on it.
If YOU figure shipping is $20 then you charge $20, do not let Ebay estimate at $10 shipping then you pay the $20!
As far as rather to part it out or sell it as a whole bike, it's a crap shoot.
You may make more $$ in parts, but how much time and shipping costs, Paypal Fees, and if Ebay their fees?
Taking less as a whole bike not running may be worth more as a fast sell you don't have to mess with and could be doing other things or out riding instead of stripping and cleaning parts.
