    Just wondering, I’ve got a nice barn find Seca that I’m cleaning up and getting ready to ride but Im picking up another identical one tomorrow almost as good. I’m going to use the second one as parts if needed. Looking at EBay I see lots of Seca stuff there so I wondering if it would be worth parting there or keep it whole and get it running/riding and sell it that way. Any thoughts about it?

    My answer is always going to be to make it ride able and keep it in circulation. I am only going to part one out if it is well beyond being saved. They are too nice a bike with, in my mind, just the right amount of technology to part out a good conditioned unit. Yamaha just isn't making anything as pretty anymore.
    Keep it riding!

    parting out a bike takes quite a while some parts go quickly which are the parts you would keep as spares. The rest just sit unless you dump them on ebay real cheap and pad the shipping cost.

    fix and ride when ever possible

    I might keep it. I’ve got an 83 GS1100 E that I bought an 82 1100 E for as parts, still got that, now have my barn find gray 82 Seca 750 and going to get another identical one tomorrow. Was going to get it today but had to do a trailer repair so tomorrow it is. Do I need 4? I think so.

    Well I just got back from picking up the 750 gray 82 Seca,4.5 hour drive one way, and looking around my shop I realize that I don’t have enough room or time to take it on. So first thing I’ll do is see if someone wants the whole bike as a project. 18,374 miles last licensed in 2011 it’s a complete with no missing parts non seized non runner.$500. Otherwise it will be parted.Anyone seriously interested and I’ll send pics tomorrow morning.Dark now.

    I got boxes of all the original parts with it.That will make it easier for me to send pictures if someone wants a particular part.

    I have the opportunity to get 2 1982 Yamaha Seca 750s that will be parted only. Non runners in good condition.No titles.Im not going to try to title them either .Not seized. They are both complete. Enough interest to make em worthwhile and I’ll do it.
