NorCal..thoughts on this '98 gas gas270 on CL?

All,
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/mcy/3409240386.html

New to trials, but not off road riding. I read through the lengthy post in this forum where people were suggesting bikes for a noob. Everyone seemed to say stick to 2000 & newer for various reasons. The theme seemed to be buy the newest bike you can afford.

This is in my price range, but I'm just getting into trials so I don't have any experience on the changes through the years, issues for each bike, etc.

I don't plan on competing right away, but might someday. The use will be for obstacles and tight trails to improve by skills on my 450.

I can afford up to about $4k so should I wait and get a new bike or do you think this would be okay for a new and not fall apart/major issues?

Any thoughts/suggestins are appreciated.

Here is another bike I want to look at (it's a 200, but I only weigh 155lbs)
