At that price I would have the Vin run and also make sure the title VIN matches the frame VIN.

Carlos,
We will do a free visual inspection and test drive before you buy it.
I can also look at the VIN to make sure it hasn't been altered.

Not saying they are bad bikes, but I would get the frame checked thoroughly before buying. I was thinking 06s were included. I didnt want to say that without being sure. Weren't they all supposed to go back for recall work? I would check into that as well.

They are bad bikes, just dont want you to run into these issues down the line.
