cost est for cr 85

there is a 2004 cr 85 for sale near me that  may be interested in. The seller said the need a new top and bottom end that the piston rocked. Im not real sure what that means. considering the whole motor needs to be gone through any one have any idea what that would run? parts and labor wise? I am trying to come up with a fair price for the bike considering it is all in pieces. I don't wan to invest 1500 into a 1k bike if you know what I mean.


thanks guys

Two strokes are easy to work on, and parts are cheap. As long as the cylinder is in good shape, and the cases, bearings, etc. on the engine are ok, then all you need is a piston and crankshaft. Which will cost you around 250$, make sure to get gaskets. If you have no idea what I just said, I'd suggest bringing along someone who had experience with two strokes to come along to look at the bike to see if its worth it. As far as labor goes, i'm not the guy to ask considering that I do all my own work  :D
