This spring/summer i am planning on selling my 80 1100I and i am thinking that $1,000 is about what it would be worth, after i install the new head gasket. I am a littleleary of this repair, so i was wondering if anyone had a rough estimate of how much this bike would be worth if it needed a head gasket?

Other than cosmetic issues, mechanical problems can scare a buyer, .....like me.

I think you will take a bath unless it is fixed.

Lolts of folks try to sell cars etc and say it just needs a head gasket, but head gaskets blow for a reason , I would replace the head gasket ,If that really is all thats wrong then you can almost double the price , if thats not,,,,, then you will be able to sell it with a clear conscience for somthing anyway.

If the rest of the bike is in nice shape you may get 50% with bad head gasket. That is a major alarm to a new buyer. I would repair before trying to sell, unless you just want to unload it.

I would tell you to trailer it down here to me and collect the $400 I would pay you for it.
