hey everyone,
Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I just finished taking the BRC course and i'm in love with riding. My Instructor said I'd be well off getting a bike up to 800cc so I'm looking at a 1987 Honda Shadow 700. The bike appears to be in great condition for the year, it has 21000 miles. The Chrome looks clean in the pictures and no rust appears visible on the bike. Its being sold by a larger dealership so I'm assuming the bike is ok.
I'm 30 years old and fairly rsponsible. I'm looking for a bike that I can grow with has i develop as a rider, but forgiving enough for someone that is not very experienced. What is your feeling on this bike for someone like me? also, the asking price is 1,999 usd, what should I attempt negotiate the price to? Also besides making sure the bike starts and clutch and brakes are sound what should i check for when I view the bike? I there any known problems with these bikes I should keep my eye out for?
Thanks for any responses. I look forward to communicating with you all.
