heres a lil bg info...i got into an accident
and the dude's bike (yamaha) got messed up. since my other accident last month
my dad doesnt wanna involve our insurance company if possible so we gotta try to keep the cost to fix the bike near our deductable.
anyway, the guy took his bike to cycle city and the estimate to fix it is $5k!!! so what im trying to say is there anyplace that could lighten the cost
i need some hookups badly

ps i suck at driving i hope i dont mess up the jetta

thanks for reading

Re: i NEED help plz read! (European)

eehh... thinking back when i was riding... umm... procycle specializes in used parts and frankensteining stuff together and then just repaint... umm... soo..
procycle, estebans... dunno bout revtek? but find out what needs to replaced..
and what the hell did you do to the poor biker? R6 or R1
? parts on ebay and we put em back together.. save you half that...

5K to fix?? that would be totaled arleady, what the hell happened? and depends what happened to the bike. lets see, paint job would run you about 500, patrs, depending on what needs to be replaced can go from 1k to about 3k and labor....prolly another 1k at the most. hello back, i might know some guys that can get part and do the work, need more info first......

Re: i NEED help plz read! (2bad)

it was an older yamaha. from what i can remember the handle bar was bent and the mirror was hanging a lil, the brake alignment was messed, the gauge pod was cracked, that shell thing on top was dented (idk o_O), and it was leaking fuel
