The ignition switch can do funky things related to engine functions, but killing the clock display and restoring it, is not one of them.

It sure sounds like a power supply problem.
If the clock is going blank, then you are loosing your power at the main distribution.

+1 on Duck's comments.

If it hit hard enough to mess up the steering and forks, it's very possible that the frame can be also damaged/tweaked beyond the point of rebuilding.

Still can't see how that would affect ABS, but it could affect physical braking if the seals start to swell and c ...

1st thing that came to my mind is tire road noise, but its more likely a bearing in the final drive. How many miles.

Why was he selling it? Did it produce ad revenue?
