Default Need 3rd Party Input!

Hi, Im new to the forum and have never owned a Ruckus before,
I am looking at purchasing a Ruckus from someone online and was curious if you could help verify some information and give me your opinion on whether or not it is a good buy. The sellers communication is not the best hense the reason i am looking for 3rd party input.
The listing says it is a 180cc GY6 swap and he is asking $3000
Can anyone give me information on this build, Is it worth $3000? is it 180cc? Does it look like a quality build? Anything I should know before buying?
Thank you for your input!!

Some build info and rough prices:
Front wheel & hub - $300, Forks - $200, Front disc brakes - $200, Brake levers - $150
LED light and bracket - $90, Front turn signals - $40, Rear under seat lights - $75, Under glow lights - $30
Speedometer - $125, Fuel gauge - $60, Handlebars - $200+, Throttle - $30-$50, Start/Kill switch - $45, Left side control - $25-$45, hand grips & mirror - $30
Panty Dropper Decal - PRICELESS!!!
Gas tank cover - $45, Foot pegs - $20, Kick stand - $60, Seat frame - $200, Air fliter - $16, Manifold cocking flange(angles the carb) - $25
GY6 150cc engine - $300, *180cc Bore kit - $100, Engine mount/Stretch kit - $275, Harness - $160+, Exhaust system - $300+, Rear wheel & hub - $200, Rear shock - $100, licence plate holder - $75
*(Only way to tell if this is a 180cc is to ride it, should be faster than a 150cc and more torque.)

Depending on the year of the bike and the condition, used stock Rucks go from $1200-$1800 in my area. (may be cheaper in your area)
Factor in the price of the mods, how it rides, and how much YOU like the bike. Overall its a nice looking Ruck.
I would make an offer of $2500 (depending on the year), and haggle the price to maybe $2700 cash. (Because of the non matching wheels, wear and tear, and it looks well used. Only being honest.)
If it ain't a 180cc, $2500 cash. Good luck
