Default 1984 Ninja Value

Any idea of a range of values for a 1984 Kawasaki Ninja?
I'm owed money and have been offered this bike in payment.
The fairing is cracked and I don't know if it can be epoxied or only new will work.
Something might be better than nothing but maybe this was never a very good bike from the gitgo. Ideas? Thanks. Thor Odinson

no more than $1000 or so in that shape. They were nice bikes when new, I rode a used '86 ZX1000R Ninja for four or five years in the '90's I paid $2500 for it 6 years old never had any trouble with it, sold it for $1500 as I recall. My bud still has an '85 900 he bought new and a another parts bike he got free........

They're a dime a dozen really unless it's in good cosmetic and running condition

DON'T DO IT! You're trading someone else's nightmare- are you nuts?
Just Say No- really.

It's to old to be listed at NADA at all. Kelly says it's worth $1600. Kelly is usually way high like a dealer would charge. I wouldn't take it. You have no idea how it's been abused. Maybe it got run out of oil once. The seals could be gone... likely in a bike that old.

As has been said. Tell him to sell it and give you the cash.
