Hey guys,

I am looking to pick up a track bike and have a line on a 2002 GSXR-600. I have seen the bike and it has been down a time or two. Sounds good, is rideable, and I am taking it for a spin tomorrow hopefully. What concerns me is there are a couple of dents on the frame from the previous crash. Since it is to be a track bike I do not care about the cosmetics.

The seller has agreed to let me take it to a mechanic beforehand to have it checked out before buying which I will definitely take him up on. He seems like a straight up guy but I was not born yesterday.

I can probably get it for under $3K which seems like a decent deal to me, but am concerned about frame damage. On average what is the cost for frame checking/straightening?

I will not pull the trigger prematurely but feel this is a decent deal for my area (Northern CA is expensive) and if I can negotiate with the guy while budgeting for frame work then I can get it over and done with without spending a fortune on pre-sale mechanical inspections and the like. <-- sorry for the run-on sentence.

Thanks in advance!

Oh and if somebody nearby is selling a track bike without suspicious damage, let me know...:cool:
