Is that wood??  Would a certificate of termite inspection be required for sale? 

The really crazy thing is it took a LOT of time to get it that way and probably a bunch of money as well........      can't figure out if there's a shaking-the-head smiley below........

That's just awful. 

Too much money and not enough sense.

Awe come on. Its not that bad. A little paint stripper, a lot of elbow grease, wire brushes and scrub pads and a complete rebuild and it would be as good as new.     Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley
  

Keep your bike in good repair:  motorcycle boots are not comfortable for walking.
