What's this 2006 GSA worth?

Ok guys, your're the experts. What's this worth?

It's a 2006 BMW R1200 GS Adventure with 72,427 miles, 1 owner form new and the service history is all BMW dealer as follows:

19/04/2006 - 943m
02/08/20065 - 6,608m
06/10/2006 - 11,592m
11/04/2007 - 18,436m
18/07/2007 - 23,889m
08/12/2007 - 29,889m
09/05/2008 - 34,751m
25/10/2008 - 41,095m
05/05/2009 - 47,552m
04/09/2009 - 54,536m
20/02/2010 - 59,832m
16/06/2010 - 66,289m

It has heated grips, ABS, fog lights, pannier frames, on-board-computer and with a new pair of tyres fitted less than 200 miles ago.

It's in reasonably good condition for the age/mileage. There is a bit of corrosion on the front engine cover.

Its passed the HPI Check, taxed until 31/03/2011, MOT 19/02/2011 but NO panniers.





















Is the engine casing replacement a cheap and easy replaced cosmetic fix?

The mileage is fairly high but has been well serviced... what do you think???

All advice gratefully appreciated!

xXx

Well lets break this down there's probably about:

90 kgs steel at 15 pence/kilo
50 kgs aluminium at around 2 quid a kilo
30 kgs plastic
2 tires
so that's about 150 odd quid plus the tires?(only joking!)

Parkers price guide says about 6 grand for an '06 GSA with ABS but it also said my bikes worth about 500 quid which seems a bit steep!

Brilliant, much quicker than I anticipated too.

Cheers.
