Hey guys I'm back, I need some help finding a cheap wrecked bike that I can fix up.

Like the title says, I had a little problem, my engine seized on Sunday and I'm out of standard transportation, this is a very good excuse to find a bike and I realize that I don't have a whole lot of money, I need to try and find a bike for under 1000(wrecked) so that I can fix it up and use it not only to learn but also to take place of no longer having my car.
It would be awesome if you guys could help me out.
I'd prefer a 600 or above and I no longer care what make, just as long as it's a sport bike.
Thanks a lot and it's good to be back.

I'd say try craigslist, they always have older 600's for about 1k, that are in decent shape, and just need some luvin

Yea I've been looking at craigslist for a few days and it is difficult to find anything here in Ohio.

look on the nearing states, sometimes they have good stuff and depending on how far it is, it could be worth it

I'm in Toledo but I'm willing to travel (hopefully if I can make it there haha) just about anywhere in the state or up into Michigan or even towards Chicago if I had to.

I rode a nighthawk in my msf class ... actually not a bad little bike, I was thinking of picking one up just to mess around on, pretty light and maneuverable.

Flat Black 2001 ZX6R (with Cali emissions )
* 15/45 Supersprox setup
* Custom shorty Yoshimura RS-3
