A 2K2 DL1000 with 75K does not have a ton of value. In mint condition, retail value is just over 3K. Since your bike was crashed and you are not a dealer, you can never expect to get that kind of money.
My advice is to ensure the bike is safe to ride. If it is safe or can be fixed relatively cheap, then do so and ride it. Forget the "pretty factor" unless you can find someone selling parts cheap. Of course this is just my opinion.
If it is not safe to ride and will cost more than 2K to get you there, find a used one and keep this one for parts.
There are 10 types of people, those who know binary and those who don't.
What I ride now:
2013 Honda GoldWing (The Lady)
2014 V-strom 650 (The Mistress)
Previously: 07 Ultra Classic, 95 Softail, 80 gs450l
