Sorry, I intended to be more specific:

There are others with perhaps a better price, but there's a lot to look at in there. I did a search for that one.

It's crossed my mind. You're talking ear shave, correct?

Since it's only surface damage, I may leave it alone until I have time/money to do the whole process. I'm already facing $100 in broken parts, $400 for new tires, and $400 in cosmetic damage. On a bike that I told my wife cost $800.

Whats broken? If its your wife's first bike, I'd say hell with the cosmetic damage for now. Earshave is worth it if shes going to be riding a lot in the future (and if you expect to take the carbs off ever)

As for tires, you can probably get away with under $200 if you shop around and install yourself.
