gsxr 600 to 750 swap should i buy?

Went to go look at a bike today overall pretty clean some cosmetic issues. However upon further inspection noticed that the right motor mount had some weird bracket on it and the left had no bolt. The left side did however have the rear motor mount attached. the front mounts did not line up exactly it looked like the motor was tweaked upward in relation tp the frame. Also the right bracket looked a little jerry rigged and very rusted through. Basically deduced that this is a 600 to 750 swap. The price is def good but worried about safety issues, should I buy or walk away?

a 600 to 750 swap wouldnt do that. theyll mount exactly the same so all that jerry rigging is caused by crappy workmanship, or a motor that just doesnt belong there. id walk away from that because you have no idea what kind of other bs theyve done to that bike.

yea I would walk away as well. looked at it for a friend, didnt recommend he buy it, just wanted a second opinion. The dude seemed cool, said he would fix it and let him know tomorrow, but not really sure how its gonna work out. We'll see.

a 600-1000 swap would do this. depending on year, there's bolt-on kits for the mounts. This sounds janky, I'd walk away.

a 1000, i BELIEVE needs new mounts and a frame shave, or even a cut and re weld

Break the wrist and walk away.

No really, walk away, and like Azylum said, who knows what other kind of poor workmanship you will find on the bike later on. . .
