I'm looking at buying a pearl white (w/ metallic gray rocker panels) 1986 Honda Helix; this bike is in relatively decent condition with 20,780 miles. The bad; The seat needs reupholstering, front brakes are trashed, it has telltale oil leak signs, there is surface rust on a few parts (obviously spent some time outside under a cover), the suspension is soft (front and rear), BUT the body is good and intact (with good paint, a few minor scratches), The good? everything seems to work; she is a runner; starts right up and the engine still sounds good and tight (could use carburetor work and an intake boot; it's not split, but it's original), tires are good, muffler is rusty but not leaking yet, and it has the optional folding (adjustable) back rest. New windshield, and aftermarket air deflectors over the foot wells. Still has original owner's manual and toolkit. So, how much is too much to pay for a bike like this? The price is $1200, but the seller will not budge on price. I offered $1100, and he wouldn't take it. Should I pass on this? I am seriously pining for a Helix; they're hard to find around here, but there is one other; a 1998 with 12k for $2,000.00 at a local Honda dealer. There is a 1994 with 6k two states over for $1700 that would cost a fortune to get here. What should I do?
