with a clean title that bike would be worth $3000 - $3500
salvage it'd be worth $2000 at best
if you get serious about it have someone check it out and make sure frame, swingarm, forks and wheels are alright.

Exclamation

Best thing you can do when looking at used bikes is to take it to a reputable mechanic for an inspection (I would only take it to Patrick or Andy).
If the owner is legit, he/she shouldn't hjave a problem with this approach.

Worst case scenario, you'll pay for the inspection but won't waste money on a bad bike.

well, from the start the seller is full of $HIT!

I wouldn't do business with a guy like that. NO WAY was that damage from being moved around. My bike fell over in the garage once and you had to look HARD to see any damage.

DONT EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME. SEEN THE BIKE THE FRAME HAS A TWEEK DOESNT RIDE STRAIGHT. It can be fixed but dont give him more than 2500 for it that bike went down at least at 50-60 miles an hour for real do what you want but im stating my opinion
