Hey guys I'm currently on the hunt for a 250cc bike, mainly the ZZR-250, and a mate's dad has bought a 'written off' bandit 250. Now written off is a overstatement. The bike has a few very light scratches on the side of the tail and engine casing. I'm pretty sure some part of the frame or something was slightly twisted, though I couldn't see anything obvious wrong when I sat on it. My friend's dad reckons he'll get it straightened easy enough and would sell it on to me for just under $3k, which seems pretty good for a 2000 model with something like 20k km's on it. Now my question is, could there be anything that might come around and bite me in the arse if I bought this bike? The dad thinks that maybe they previous owner dropped it on some grass on purpose, the owner's bike shop has declared it a write off so he could get a full replacement from the insurance company, and the bike shop has bought the bike back from the insurer and sold it on as a '(repairable?) write off'. I trust my friend's dad enough that he wouldn't sell me a dud bike, but I'm puzzled as to how a bike in such good nick is a write-off? Thoughts and opinions?
