Ask coconut.... I don't think you will find it will be that cost efficient to repair.... Not too mention the risk of something being wrong that is less obvious having been down the road!

It looks cheap at first, but when you consider that a damaged repaired car or bike is worth approx 20% less than you could buy a non damaged one for I'm not so sure I would like to take it on, I wouldnt be surprised if the owner is trying to off load it as he's seeing the price rising rapidly, still someone will buy it I'm sure.

I wonder if coconuts bike plus this one would be close to one good bike...or did he go down on the same side???

(These pictures make me sad, but hey, at least these bikes ran enough to get damaged.  Mine is back at the dealer, again, second time it wouldn't even attempt to start, so far it's spent three days in my garage in the last month)

There aren't many salvageable bits left from mine !

Looking at this one it must have gone down hard to break the front rim,
and I wonder how straight the front end is ?

Note also that the person selling it isn't the one who crashed it,
so has no first hand knowledge of the crash.

The seller states he purchased it as a project,
so it can be assumed he bought the salvage after it had been "written off"
and there may well be further damage than mentioned in the Description.
