Anyone have any thoughts on this?

This is what I was looking for this past fall/winter. A decent bike for my wife/kid.

Looks like the rear frame loop (behind the seat) is cracked/broken. Assuming the frame isn't all twisted and the rest of bike looks good and runs good... Is that too big of a red flag? Should I not even consider this?

That seems like a lot of money for that bike but I'm not up on what they ought to cost. $1500 seems more like what a pristine one would bring. How much bigger is that than a ttr? I might sell the one I've got. I have to check with my daughter though... ;)

Bike Finds (http://www.bikefinds.com/kawasaki-klx140-for-sale) shows the cheapest asking price around $1800. The $1500 asking seems about right.

Seems way high to me for a 140 (thats 8yrs old and sold for ~$3k originally to boot.) Though pretty much any running bike seems to sell for at least $1000. Just you can probably find a lot more bike for the same price then. There is always the difference between asking price and selling too. Me and and my friends have bought two nice DRZ400s each for less than that in the last year. There are plenty of deals out there.
