I found a dirt bike that I want to buy and work on and I found one but don't know how severe the damage is. Here is the link CLICKY! How bad does this sound and is it fixable? And how much do you think it would cost to fix? Thanks in advanced!

Wow that was fast. It was a 97 Honda cr125r I think, and he said it needed new rings but he kept riding it and then the motor locked up, and he was selling it.

Looks like the engine went through "hell" & trying to sell his 'headache'-

If the engine has bottom end damage it'll cost more to repair than the bike is worth.
