Unhappy Advice needed

Hi everyone I crashed my fz6 I survived
The frame is broken, sub frame is bent and the rear wheel is bent but everything else works fine.
Please have a look at the pictures and tell me if you think it's feasible to fix
Can it be weld? Replace the frame? Or just sell it and accept the loss?

Wow, that sucks.

I would have to think that attempting to fix the bike back to an acceptable state would be more expensive then just buying another one.

Luckily you are OK. Honestly, I would either sell it as is, or better yet, part out it out. You could also just keep it for parts.

You should be able to find one in good condition for $3k or maybe even less.

Sorry to hear about the crash, sounds like you made it out of it relatively well, that's all that really matters!

It will be a lot of work tearing everything down to replace the damaged components. However, if you are willing to put in a bit of time and effort, it is certainly doable.

Let us know how it goes!
