My neighbor got nailed @ aprox 60mph by a ricerocket:eek:

He wants to sell me his '99 okee for cheap.(no price mentioned yet)

He drove it about a mile like that.




What do you think? $500-$600?

I think he can get more than 500 for it. but it sounds decent, i would buy it for 500, as long as the air bag didn't deploy.

Check out the sub-frame, if it is out of wack, then it's a goner. Other wise it would be alright for a trail rig.

If you are going to be fabbing most of your parts, that might be ok. I personally dont like buying wrecked rigs.

If you were planning on buying parts and bolting/welding them on, that front end is going to be an absolute nightmare....

I'd figure that the D30 is probably fubar, and the front of the unibody as well.

I'd buy it if I needed a drivetrain, but I wouldn't plan on using the body.

I looked at it closer today.
The bike:homer: hit in front of the pass. tire.
The dent to the far left (directly above the pass. front tire)is where his left arm hit. Skin & hair still attached!
Everything forward of the fanclutch is throwaway, except the electric fan. The A/C seems fine.
The doors are fine.
All the sheetmetal forward of them is throwaway.
The controlarms are straight.

He was crossing 4 lanes of 45mph traffic @ a 2way stopsign.
He made it through 3.75 lanes & the mc tried to swerve around the front of the jeep.:eek::homer::eek:

Like I said, I didn't witness the collision.

He said he talked to the chp, and theytook some photos.

I drove by the scene & they were sweeping up.
