Question What's it worth? (short version)

I've edited this way down, as that was too much to read before.

I have a 2001 Kawi ZX9R that was wrecked, and all broken parts except the subframe were replaced. It is getting a custom metallic black paintjob this week, and service is up to date. As well, it is going to CompuTrack for complete chassis tuning in 3 weeks. It's got LP: bar ends, grips, Flush IV's, V2 screen, bolt kit, rearsets; Micron slip-on with Micron jet kit, new Vortex sprockets, 530 chain, probably more....I can't remember. 6500 actual miles, and she will be freshly painted, complete service at dealership, and CompuTrack chassis tune in 3 weeks.

What is she worth?

Come on, guys......gimme some input. I need you to be honest, and the guys that are a certain brand lover, hold your comments about 'I wouldn't pay $5 for a Kawasucki'.

$5? No way man. That beautys worth less than 27 cents.
KBB lists $4375 trade in and $6335 retail. With the new 10R's out and the fact that it was wrecked (you can never know all the stuff thats bent/broken or going to die later on) I would pay about $5500 max for it. With a bent subframe I'd be wary of even offering that much. Would depend on an in person look. remember that accessories are worth about 10% of what they cost.

Thanks for the honest response. I know she's not worth much and I know not to expect anything back for mods. If anything, mods retract from the value. As for the subframe, that's why I mentioned CompuTrack: they are the only licensed chassis experts in the country, and this bike will be 100% straight before I sell it. If need be, the subframe will be replaced before sale. Whatever it takes to make the bike right, I will do before I sell it. It's what I would want done before I bought, so that's how I handle things.
