I picked this bike up with the intentions of using the parts for a project and then selling the HUGE frame. I no longer have a need for the parts and while cleaning it to sell I notice it has been in a front end collision.
I can't tell if the bike rides straight because honestly, it is about 10 cm too large for me and I would need a ladder to get on the thing. Can I sell this bike, clearly stating that the frame is bent and showing similar pictures as posted below, or is it junk and should I just part it? Frame is weird geometry too (at least to me) 64cm seat tube and ~58/59cm top tube, both c-c.
(after previewing this post I notice that the profile shot is not straight on as it should be so not really great for judging the damage. I'll try to get a better one up later)

Honestly, if I wrecked one of my bikes and that was the extent of the damage, I'd keep riding it without losing any sleep over it. It's not going to crumble into dust from beneath anyone while riding it.
Selling it might be a different issue. Maybe pick the parts and donate the frame to a co-op, someone will gladly live with that damage to make a fixie out of it.
