Something that looks like a motorcycle and is available for $300 can be very tempting when one's funds are low but you're lusting for a bike anyway. But what you're looking at is not a motorcycle. It's a pile of headaches on two fairly new tires. Leave this one alone, save some more money, and keep a close eye on Craig's List. Outstanding bargains do show up regularly, but you need to have the cash for it on hand and be ready to buy quickly or someone else will snap them up first. I usually buy/sell two or three bikes a year just because I see something interesting and know I won't lose money on it. And I NEVER buy a bike without a clear title. That's just asking for even more headache.
