Question....2004 R6 Salvage need advice.

I saw a 2004 R6 3800ish miles on Craigslist...was intrested and went down to see it with a friend.....everything looked good was fixed up clean had some add ones....Rode it and it ran smooth couldnt feel anything odd or weird on the test ride....frame looked fine. He's selling for 5000 $ doesnt it sound like decent deal or what? I dont care much for re sale value....I dont plan to re sell it anytime soon and its registerable already....has already been inspected and such....what do u think? Pic below.

I guess I would ask what made it a "salvage"? Theft? Wreck? What was repaired? It would really suck to have an amateur frame weld come apart when you're knee to the ground going around a turn at 115...

well I talked to him and he said it was dropped on right side and needed all new fairings replaced....he told me framed wasnt damaged....he told me something else was damaged but cant remember what....He said he has insurance on it Atm...but not full coverage...he said Farmers might full coverage me but he's not sure.

$3K, I would consider it if it's just plastics, for $5k, you could get a pristine R6.
