    New or used? In what state? Private sale or from a dealer? 'As is' or with a warranty? What did your mechanic tell you about when and how the frame cracked?

    You skipped some of Aaron's questions.

    Private sale or from a dealer?

    'As is' or with a warranty?

    What did your mechanic tell you about when and how the frame cracked?

    Sounds suspicious that they will not comment on whether or not the frame was cracked when you bought it or whether they believed it was something you did after the sale. Or perhaps they just don't know.

    My gut is telling me that you are out of luck.

    When anyone buys a used vehicle they should always have the vehicle inspected by their own mechanic before they agree to purchase it. (Caveat emptor)

    I asked what your mechanic says about the frame, not what the seller says. If you want to make any sort of case here, at a minimum you need your own mechanic to testify that the damage predated the sale, and probably also to also opine that the seller could not realistically have been unaware of the damage.
