The only real concern with a good looking bike like that, is if the engine sat on its side for a while before being shut off. That potentially could give you pre-mature bearing wear, which wouldn't be fun to deal with later.

With crashed bikes that haven't been gone through, it's always good to pay half of their used value.

Hmmm, I know its a gamble eh. The bid is starting at $2000 and i wouldn't pay over $4500 or even $3500.

What year? What parts are damaged? How many miles?
It's a 2013, the frame has a little dent in it, there's about 4600kms (2800 miles) on it. It will need a front wheel or depending on how bad the damage, if it's salvageable. The left fork looks alright but the right one looks hurtin.

Would be curious to know more about this, could you please elaborate? What's awhile?

Considering an engine in good working order from 1000-5000 miles will cost you $1000-$3000 (more likely in the middle) it's a pretty good deal!

The engine is perfect. I talked to the original owner and they confirmed everything about bike. :D
