    Whats a seized up TW worth

    A friend of mine has a TW200 he used on his farm. I've been trying to get him to sell it to me and today I found out he seized it up. First I need to know what it's worth (I don't know the year or miles) and second how much of an issue this is going to be to rebuild. I just rebuilt an 82 honda xr500r, will it be somewhat the same process? (depending on what damage I find inside)
    Thanks,

    Free sounds good. What's he going to do with it??

    Virtually any TW is worth at least $200 - $300 in parts. If you can pick it up for that price range, you should do it.

    I bought a parts bike that was seized up. After inspection I found the gear behind the clutch broken. The guy wore the front sprocket down so bad that the chain jumped the sprocket and broke the gear.

    Other issues?

    I was just thinking. If they ran it out of oil, along with the seized up piston I could have issues with the transmission etc. If I can work a price out with him I'm thinking of draining the oil to see if theres metal parts but how else can I guess the extent of the damage without opening up the motor? Would it be easier to just get a new motor? Would it need to be a TW200 motor or are there other motors out there that would be a direct bolt in? Thanks,
