DRZ400 Breaking for spares ??? NO, fixing it!!

Please have a look in for sale-section here:

If the demand looks good I'll break this bike up. The head repairs could run well over R10 000 which I feel is too much to spend on a R29000-bike.

Mine ran a big end bearing and crashed everything in the motor, also debated breaking up for spares, in the end had to fork out the R20k for a motor rebuild as it wasn't really viable.

As close to R20k as possible, please.

I am repairing the motor and ride the bike until I'm very old.
