"As far as the info goes, that's all there is. The bike belongs to my good friends mom. The person who has all the real info is no longer in the picture."

Which often means the person who knows where the title is stored is also no longer in the picture.

No title = No sale. Unless you want to part the bike out. $550 max up to $1000 if compression is good and the tranny seems to work.

Wiring issues. New clutch. Rubber/seal rot. Gas tank probably needs lined. Shocks rebuilt. Complete brake job. This looks like a complete disassemble and rebuild. I have a long history of doing this and with the exception of one or two bikes have never made back my $$ and time. They all were fun to do but not economical.

Just my $.02 worth.
