Long time admirer of these machines ever since I saw one in person years before getting my license. I've been keeping my eyes out for a decent example of one of these machines for the last few years to get as a sporty around town bike to complement my existing fleet.

I found one for sale (asking $2k) nearby an out of state event that I'm attending. So, I'm trying to decide if it's worth the extra time and effort to pick it up. It's currently owned by a younger first time rider, there are no maintenance records available (~35k miles). It's got some scrapes on the case and some surface rust on a bolts and pegs and oxidation - all visible in photos. Clearly this motorcycle has not been babied and has been stored outside for a couple years at least! That doesn't scare me off, so long as it is safe to ride and works as advertised.

I really want the opinion of this council on the correct value for this thing, presuming it's all there and all works as shown in photos I have been provided. I'm thinking something like $1k?

Thanks for your wealth of knowledge about this cool little bike!

Don't see any photos in your post. I'm in California and bought a very nice clean CB-1 w/12,000 miles last year for $3,900. Probably high compared to other states but it was in very nice condition mechanically and cosmetically.

$1754 if it's a 1989 and it's complete with the centerstand. $1690 without.
$1668 it it's a 1990.

How many speed holes in the rear brake reservoir guard?

Is it better or worse than this $850 abomination?

Would you mind dusting off your Polaroid and tacking a few pictures to the bulletin board at my local supermarket?
