Default leaking radiator

So the '92 F2 I've been slowly getting back together has a leaking radiator. Any suggestions on how to replace this without spending an arm and a leg and not potentially ending up with another leaking one from eBay. The only one I've seen on eBay that is reasonable is $125 says it doesn't leak but for how long. Searched for a universal radiator by dimensions but not much luck. So my next thought is some type of easy upgrade or switch. Any thoughts are welcome.

Take it to a local radiator shop and have them repair it.

Yeah. I ended up buying one of eBay. No radiator shops around me except the commercial Midas type places that just replace. After I bought it I found brand new F3 radiators. Should have done more research and converted to that but what is done is done.

Found it on Ebay. Here's a link to one. Engine Radiator Cooler Cooling For Honda CBR600 CBR 600 F3 1995-1998 96 97 | eBay
As far as I can tell all you'll need in addition to this is new radiator hoses since it sits lower to accommodate the ram air intake.
Let me know how it works out. Hope it helps.
