Should I buy a parts bike

So a guy near me has an 01 fz1 parts bike. Only issue mechanical wise supposedly is a bad #3 crank bearing. Has the engine out and partly disassembled. Aftermarket bars, grips, levers, good stock seat, non leaky forks, etc. Currently need all listed above plus a clutch. Well, seat I'd actually rather take into an upholstery shop and get redone.
At $400 it seems like a bad move to not get it since all the little things add up so quickly and having a spare to everything except the engine is a plus considering parts availability is getting less and less for our bikes...

What y'all think?

If it also includes a title - it's a no-brainer.

If you are going to keep yours for a while, and have the space, yes.

Yes, clean title. Has a slip on too but by the look of it, it's a pretty throaty one so I may just sell it and put the money towards the 14" Delkevic slip on I've been looking at.
I already have a 10x20 storage unit so that's not an issue.
I plan on keeping my 05 for as long as it lasts and the more parts I have for it, the longer it should last me
Wondering if I could get the guy to go lower...

Sounds like a decent deal, especially if you have the space. Never hurts to offer a lesser amount, you can always go up as needed.

If you’re gonna offer him “two fiddy”, be sure to also mention it’s cash, and send a pic of said cash if you want, just so he knows you got the $250.
