I have been looking at bikes for a while.
this is something i can afford.
if all goes well i am going to buy it tomorrow.
I wanted some of your opinions to see if I need to dodge this one.
But, I am anxious to get a bike.
Wow, that looks like rat bike to me! $1000 is only the begining my freind. You're going to have to dig a lot deeper than that to make that bike dependable, even if you're Captain Handy. I'd keep lookin.........

*New Registration sticker

I agree, 1000 is a bit much for it with that much wrong with it... although I would still go check it out, make sure the sight glass is leaking... it is probably the gasket behind the sight glass, and not the glass itself... also find out why the speedo doesn't work. While checking out the bike, make a mental list of every thing that needs to be fixed now, and then go onto ebay and look to see how much money you will need to drop into it.
That is way way to much for a "fixer upper".. I paid $175 for one parts bike and another $20 for another.. I got lucky!... but its been a long road to rebuild (2 years).. with that bike your going to drop more $$ than its worth.... keep looking.
