Well, that bike didn't come in white so for whatever reason it has been repainted.
You'll just have to check it out yourself to make the best decision.

Also, not sure at what mileage they were prone to having issues, but some of the 07's motors basically ate themselves. If I were to buy one, I'd probably want one with a warranty. But at that point, I probably wouldn't even mess with an 07 all together

I bought my bike from that same seller and havent had any probs. He buys them at auctions from where ever and sells them outta his second garage. My katana came from Arkansas and had to get it inspected for TX before i got the title and plates. He is a legit guy and is very upfront about whats wrong with the bike in person.

good luck in your decision

Yup, I bought my first bike from him.
The bike I bought had been repaired and repainted but I didn't know any better at the time.
He didn't tell me that though. However, the bike never had an issue.
Bought with less than 2k miles and I sold it with like 13000mi

Looks nice, be interesting to find out if it's mech as sound. Good luck on it.
