Paid 1100 for my 86 a few years ago. It was my first bike, worked out fine. I'm 6'2-6'3 - It's not as big as some bikes but I don't think I look ridiculous on it.

Check the charging with a multi-meter. You want to see north of 14v DC @ 5000RPM directly on the battery.

For that year and mileage, you should be fine as long as she's in running condition. The tires may be at the point you want to change them, just due to the age.
