Need more info about the bike model, miles on the odometer and maintenance of the bike. All questions that you should have asked the seller before hand. Hopefully you have some mechanical background with cars and bikes. Before making an offer, go check the bike out with someone who knows bikes and what to look for. 2 sets of eyes are better than one during the inspection/ride process. Also ask to see the title to make sure there's no loans/liens against it. Use common sense and don't make an offer at first, if you like what you see give yourself sometime to think about it and 24-48 hrs later re-check the bike again. You'd be surprised what you may have missed.hoping to pick up my (new to me) 2007 honda shadow soon. what can you tell me? is there anything mechanically wrong to look for with this bike? malfunctions?
