Got screwed on a deal, NEED ADVICE!!
Happy to say I'm a new proud owner of a 2009 triumph daytona 675. I bought the bike for $3200 a couple days ago and was feeling great about it. I looked it over at the spot, it looked to be in rough shape, but nothing i couldn't fix. It had low miles (under 10,000) so i figured it couldn't be too bad.
I took it to my local triumph dealer just in case, i got back the inspection and they said i have a cracked main frame (among other problems) and told me i should take it to the junkyard. They were supposed to do some more work on it, but just blew it off. My guess is because they didn't want to be responsible for anything that happened to me when riding. I even had to sign a form saying they don't believe i should ride the bike and it could be a danger to myself or something along those lines.
Basically, I am looking for any solutions. Can i buy a mainframe on ebay and just change out everything? Wouldn't the VIN be different? if so, how would that work since the title links with the current VIN.
The bike has a clean title. Any advice helps, nothing negative please. Feeling pretty down as is.
