    Depends on how much work you wanna put in. The forks themselves are easy to sell for greater than scrap value. Should have a burly electric motor in it and possibly a decent radiator, ECM and a bunch of harness wire along with an aluminum transmission. Personally I just take off the forks, take out the batteries and sell the rest as is for unprepared heavy iron
