And I think one of the frequent posters (Old as Dirt?) has a front end for sale- they all used the same front end, IIRC. And the replacement of the damaged front end should be relatively straightforward. Or it could just be one bent fork, or a bent tie-rod or whatever they call it. It would be a bargain for somebody who's handy with a wrench!

That's what I was thinking...
The reason I quickly posted this, a great project bike.
But for the price, you could keep it around for Parts too I guess.

I actually know that scoots owner, we have talked recently and he does not want to dump 1k in it replacing the front end, then turn around and sell it because he is a merchant marine and will be at sea for 4-6 months soon. I don't blame him at all.

I do have a complete front end and would tackle it but my barn space is no more as I have sold that house and barn last fall. my new space is MUCH smaller and I have limited room to do big projects especially with summer coming fast.

I do feel $800 is not out of line whats so ever for it, hell someone could piece and part it out on eBay and make 1K over what they pay for it in parts. just have to do the hassle of breaking it down and boxing parts up when they sell.
