Looks like most of the bike is hashed... if the motor runs it might be worth about a $1000.00 - $1500.00 I personally wouldn't give more than $500.00, and I need the front rim...LOL

There's a motor for sale on this board for only $400 and it's still available. JUst thinking, it may take a little time to move the parts. But how nice would it be to have a spare motor, if you can make $500 from the other salvagable parts.

Yeah there's not much on the bike that isn't bent, twisted, or heavily damaged.
Every time I see this I think "poor baby, what did they do to you".

This baby got seriously trashed.
Notice how the front wheel, forks, and triple trees are at a slant.
That means even the forks might not be salvageable.
So far, the engine looks like the major component that is salvageable.
Everything else looks iffy at best.

I am welling just looking at this post...

$600 is best offer....motor and possible the frame are salvagable.

There may be some usable electrical components that weren't damaged.
More photos would help determine what might be salvageable.

just talked to the guy on the phone a little bit.... sounds like its a total loss

it was raced by the first 2 owners, third owner never rode it i guess and now this kid crashed into the woods hitting a deer with it.

he says the rear rim and swinger are toast, and hes not sure about the forks or frame plus it has a salvage title already so its been previously totaled.

he didnt seem to know much about it but i thought it was weird that it was raced but it was stock other than the slip ons.... no power commander or anything unless he already pulled it off.

but hey its got a new clutch ! haha


says hes open to offers on it, but im not sure its worth my time to even go look at it at this point.

It looks like it might have SATO rear sets as well if they are not bent up.
