Time will tell if you got a good deal. Depends on how many of those parts you actually use.

What i meant was if you were to buy these parts would the approx cost match what i paid? i know the Renthal bars alone are around 50 pounds here!

At the current exchange rate (1 US dollar = 1.96 UK pounds) that's probably a deal over here. You've easily got over a hundred dollars worth of seals and bearings, and the bar/triple clamp combo is another hundred +. If you do all your own repairs/maintenance and like having spares on hand, I'd go for it.

id jump on that if i were you!

but why did he have so many extra parts? does the bike really need all that stuff because of its condition?

No, the guy is an ex-Yamaha sponsored rider and is now with KTM so he sold off all the Yamaha bikes and spares, i snapped it all up and am very happy with it.

I would buy the parts, keep what you think you'll use and sell the rest on e-bay or sell to other 450 owners.
