Maybe it's a R7, but it has the body style of a 02/03 R1.

Buying a salvage bike offers really no resale value in the future. However, you can still recoup your cost if you bought it real cheap. Many choose a salvage title bike for a track bike. Basically, they know the will never sell it and do not expect much $$$ from the sell of a track bike anyway. They bought the bike to ride and thrash the poo-poo out of it. I guess you can say it is more "disposable".

There are some people who buy salvage bikes (cars too) and fix them to look normal. However, there are safety issues lurking below the plastic or sheetmetal. Such as frame stress cracks, sucky welds, bent swingarms, etc... Many (most of the public) do not want to take a chance. That is why you basically do not have a good resale value with a salvage title bike. Too much risk.
