Don't hesitate. I have often seen deals on vehicles get missed due to dithering around over whether something is a good deal or not. The trick is, of course, knowing if it is worth buying for what the seller is asking. Do your homework before looking at a particular type of machine so you don't have to take the time to ask questions over the internet. I have been known to drive a couple of hundred miles to look at a bike on a moments notice. I am also willing to walk away after driving that two hundred miles if the deal wasn't right
Remember too, that other folks opinions are just that, their opinion. I have noticed that certain types of bikes are more pricey in different areas of the country than in others. That would effect what the worth of the bike is to someone in that area. At the end of the day it all boils down to whether it is worth the price to you, not someone else.
One final thought, old bikes will need work. Be prepared to get your hands dirty.

VERY well said...I get things...because I'm aggressive. I do my homework and then jump on them when they pop up. Yea, I make mistakes...that's life.
This was very good training for you...a dry run if you will.
Another one will pop up and now you are prepared,
