The photos tell the story.

The seller says the CDI can be fixed :smt005 A little glue and that printed circuit board will be just fine.

Not sure I'd spend $1699 US on a chance the engine is in better shape than the frame.

The big green and white wires attached to the giant toggle switch are interesting. Track bike? High-side accident?

Rear pegs wrapped in foam...or are they homemade frame sliders?

Is the engine bent too? Full of rust from sitting outside for years? Want to spend $1699 US to find out?

Seller won't answer if engine turns over or is seized? Frame is toast and suggests putting the engine in another frame or "art decoration"
