Just wondering if you would purchase a stolen recovery bike. Your savings is about a thousand less than a normal bike. However the V.I.N. has been sanded off, and a B.C. registration plate has been put in its place. I'm assuming the thieves, would have screwed up the tranny or something else on the bike. How much headache would you have with this bike, no original V.I.N.? I've already declined the bike, thanks to the advice of a good mechanic (no sarcasm, I really was thankful). However I just want to get other people's opinions. It was a 2001 CBR f4i for $5,900 in the Buy and Sell.
