      Don't see to many of these threads in here, so there's a chance this one might be 1.0

      The bike:

      2016 FLHR Road King. 3800 miles. Side-swiped at 40mph, low sided, then somehow high sided. Damage on both sides. I just washed it.

      I made a list of the parts I knew it needed.

      L saddlebag
      L saddlebag hinge
      L saddlebag reflector
      R saddlebag
      R saddlebag hinge
      R saddlebag lid
      Primary cover and gasket
      Both grips
      Clutch lever
      Clutch lever bracket
      Brake lever
      Fuel gauge
      L mirror
      L saddlebag crash bar
      L saddlebag bracket
      R saddlebag bracket
      Front crash bar
      Both rider floorboards
      Passenger floorboard covers
      Windscreen and a few supports
      L Spot light
      Spot Light mounting bar.
      Fuel tank
      Left muffler and end cap.

      We're at $4900 worth of parts so far. Not sure if rear fender and some of the other brackets took some energy with that saddlebag drama or not. If so, we're probably close to $6K

      NADA value is probably in the low $14K

      I seriously doubt they are going to total that out.

      How many hours do you estimate the labor if you had to guess ?

      This is where the true cost to repair comes in. Parts are generally pretty low on the overall cost of body work, it's the labor that gets you.

      But its all cosmetic, its not like he needs the motor rebuilt ... How many hours can quick bolt on parts really take ...

      Insurance will get the bike fixed.
      My friend who hit a deer on his Heritage Softail Classic while we were in northern Michigan a few years ago had a lot more damage than Mike's bike.
      The insurance company had it repaired; took the shop in S.C. three weeks to complete the job.
      My friend sold the bike as soon as it was returned.

      I really hope so, but the math on this one may not work out. At $100/hr, there's probably only room for 40-50 hours worth of labor on this.

      It will probably be quicker for me to find an identical bike in another state to get it fixed. I'm hearing delivery of pre-painted parts can take months.
