i can get a 95 ZX6R, with 19,000 miles on it, only problem is a spider crak on the frame, top of the frame, some scraches, and one more visible loss of paint, for $1900.

is this a good price?

avoid that bike like the plague
unless you wanna go through the hassle of buying a NEW frame and basically destroying the bike to build a new one around the new frame. Cracked frames are difficult to fix.
Of course, the only frames i've ever fixed are those on 3 and 4 wheelers. so it could be different on a bike...but i doubt it

Go for it. There's nothing wrong with welding on frames. It's a common thing done on unibodies.

i talked to the shop, said 40 bux to fix it...
btw, the crack is barely noticeable, and not deep at all, it can even possible be a crack in clearcoat

Might want make sure there isn't anything else wrong with it since it does have a cracked frame. Thats pretty serious. I'm not saying you can't fix it, but there maybe other things wrong with it.
