2002 R6 for $2000 But....

the bikes partially taken apart the clutch cable, air box, gas tank, chain and battery are not hooked up. apparently the guy did a motor swap the new motor has 5300 miles. other than that the motor radiator and all the electrical components are all installed. The guy is asking $2000 but willing to go as low as $1800. Cosmetically the bike is beautiful, has a rebuilt title and the price is too good to be true. i want to jump in but at the same time not so much without starting it up.

btw im new to bikes but im going to check it out with a guy who knows about them, thing is the seller is 200miles away so if its not worth it i dont want to waste my time or gas so think its a big risk or just pass it off

Never buy anything that you can't hear run...can't always trust everyones stories...just my 2cents.

Just a beat up stunt piece

MCN consumer guide lists an 02 r6 as 3500$ in good condition... no way possible its worth 2 grand not running.

Thats BS to. Not saying you're wrong I believe mcn said that but 35 for a 02 is insane.

Honestly, how hard is it top put the battery back in and the air box and tank back on so you can at least see it run
