Been looking at the Stroms both 650 and 1000 for a while and came across
a dl1000 without the fairing...

Shop said aftermarket fairing would be $300 and stock would be $750...

The bike must have gone down pretty hard to destroy the fairing, the LH hardguard was rashed pretty bad and the end of the LH muffler had some rash also...

The rest of the bike looked good.

It what areas should I look for additional hidden damage?

Is the shop owner about right on the fairing replacement prices?

What kind of aftermarket fairing would fit on a Strom?

Thanks for the help...

Welcome to the forum!

Can you snap a picture and post it for us to look at? That would help with damage assessment. Is the entire fairing missing, or just the side panels? Are the original headlights there? What about turn signals? Windshield? How much is he asking for it? What year is it?

I've NEVER heard of aftermarket fairings for the Strom. I would ask to see exactly what the shop owner is talking about before I even considered moving forward. Unless you like project bikes and all that they may entail, I wouldn't even consider buying a crashed bike. Ask to see the title. The bike may have been "totaled" by the previous owner's insurance company. If it is COMPLETELY fairingless, you're looking at around $2300+. That's assuming that the stock headlights are still there and that you plan on doing all the work yourself to save on labor costs.

Low mileage < 9k 05 model I think might be 06

The instrument cluster is there...

No fairing at all...no stock headliights...

Homemade bracket rigging make shift lights and blinkers to make it legal...

Clear title as there was no insurance company payout...

The front is pretty "madmax" looking...

Rest of the bike is really clean...

In the condition you describe, you are looking at about $3200 in parts (no labor included) to put that bike back together. That's also not including fixing the scraped up exhaust. Kelly Blue Book trade value for that bike is $4185 in GOOD condition. If you could get that bike for $1000 or less, it might be worth the risk that there is more damage (tweaked forks, tweaked frame, engine damage, etc...) than you can see up front. Personally, I would walk away from it for any more than a grand.

Thanks...

Used V-Stroms can be had at pretty fair prices. There's no need to buy a kit bike unless you're really into that. Good luck on finding the right Strom. Check on the Two Wheeled Texans forum. I've seen some nice Stroms for sale there before.
