Giant Sun missing guts!

So I have the opportunity to pick up a Giant Sun in what looks to e great condition, except, it looks like someone unplugged and removed everything from under the bed. The whole ballast tray i'm assuming but not sure. I'm able to get it for next to nothing so I'm trying to figure out if what it might cost to get it running again assuming I need the entire ballast tray..

So my questions are, is this a good idea, who would be a good company to work with to put this thing back together, and what might something like a whole ballast tray cost?

I've always purchased working equipment so I'm sort of new to frankenbeds!

Thanks everybody

If your getting it for next to nothing, that is what it's worth. A gutted bed wasn't worth much to start with, or else they would have left it whole. Don't know for sure, but I don't think it's worth putting any money into it.

Yeah that's the way its starting to look. A landlord is selling it and when I went to take a look we were all surprised to find that all the beds in this closed salon had missing ballast trays. Guessing the former owner was trying to "stick it to the man". I appreciate the input.

I would walk away. It's hard enough to find parts now as it is on those beds, let alone a whole ballast tray.
