What do you think? Thanks.

Yes, I think that is a good price. I just bought a 96 a month ago for a little less $$. Since I got mine I have been checking craigslist nationaly - many Techno are offered at $2,000 to $1,800. I would try to offer a few hundered less. Still, at $1,500 you will never find a Rev 2 for that.

I like mine it's basicly the same engine as the newer Betas. The front is a little heavier on the Techno. As the seller told me "For a begginner the only difference between a Techno and a newer Beta is the price."

If you get it put some S3 foot pegs on it. That's about all it needs....

Obviously go look at it, and at least start it - but it looks good. (Some really helpful info there, I know. You're welcome.)

Call Bill at Balance Trials (720-207-7715). He's a Beta dealer in Westminster - he might have seen the bike before. If you ever need work/parts on/for it, he's your guy.
