How much does cracked frame drop pice of a bike?

How much does he cost of a bike drop (ballpark) due to a cracked frame ? Would one figure just the replacement cost of the frame or should one include labor to move all parts over? Reason being, I found a potential project bike was curious where to begin with offer.

More info would be good, i.e. type of bike and year.
If it was me I would subtract cost of frame and labor, along with anything else I could think of, before I made an offer. There are other things that could be damaged when the frame got cracked. Forks, steering head bearings, suframe, etc.

Unless the frame is going to grow arms and swap the parts over on its own, then yes, you should include the cost of labor.

take an extra good look at those forks if the wheel is trashed.....sometimes you can hardly tell from looking that they're bent......

In this case you are not really buying a project bike you are buying a bunch of parts to go on a project bike... unless its dirt cheap walk away.

Yes. You're basically paying for a motor and a few other parts.

if you are putting back for street, it's better to part that pile of heap. If you are doing it for track then have replacement frame is around $1000. Replacing frame without vin# always attract the lawmen.

2K is NOT reasonable. With the damage you have described, the bike should be a virtual give away. $1K, maybe.

Thanks for the input. I think I'm gonna let this one slide. Wife would probably kill me anyways, given that the house isn't done yet and I'm out looking for another bike.
