bought a 1983 yamaha 650 maxum shaft drive for $900. needs a little cosmetics but runs like a champ. got it for my kid, he wanted to spend about $6k for a bike. told him that how would he feel if he laid down a bike that cost $900 or how wpuld he fell if he drop one that cost $6k. he saw the point. I told him that after a year and two safety courses then I would go half's with him on a new bike.
