Bike Value

Hey MH,

Im looking at maybe buying a bike from a friend. Its an 01 suzuki bandit 1200.
The bike was laid down by another rider, my friend bought it from that guy and its been sitting in his garage for 2 years now. The damage was significant one side of the fairings are shredded but the bike does ride just needs a battery. But i have no idea what to pay for something like that. Plan to maybe go the street fighter route with it. Summer is coming and i just want something to push around besides my cruiser. Can anyone give me a price to pay for something of this nature. Dont have pics i know that would help. He asked for $600 is that a good deal or to high?

Thanks,
Chris

if the bike starts and runs without mechanical issues, for $600 I'd buy it.

Thanks! I thought 600 seemed fair just wasnt sure. Checked KBB and NADA but that doesnt give me realistic numbers for the situation..

If forks/frame/motor are all good and it is mostly cosmetic, I would jump on it for 600

be prepared to spend a 1000 to get it running. Gas sitting in that bike for 2 years has eaten the tank and carbs

He got it running about six months ago. I actually helped him do it he had to clean rust out of the tank and run seafoam through it but it started up and after running for awhile idled fine. Still think there can be a chance of carb issues?

600 bux for a runner is good. Carbs probably still need a good cleaning.
