Question Need Advice on a bike.

so I was perusing (sp?) craigslist today. I saw this deal on an 1988 600r. I called the guy and he said that he lost the title but I would get a bill of sale. since he doesnt have the title he will go down to 300 for me. It just needs carb work and a battery.

So he says.

My brother made the point of it being a 88 everything will need to be replaced soon. But for 300 bucks I just want to get back on the streets. I don't want to run it fast or anything. Just want to get back riding.

What do you guys think?
Good deal?
or stay away?

Sweet. I will stay away from the 88 bike but this one... this seems like a cool new stunter.

Your thoughts?

my $1k bike that I've owned for about a year has been down half the time waiting on parts or misc bullshit. Spent about $600 and countless hours so far keeping it going. Finally running out of stuff to replace or repair though, I guess that's good?

It is ok, I am the same way right now...

except I am searching for the first bike... I see some that are cheap and it makes me excited because good deals are awesome. But I have to keep telling myself that you get what you pay for and that the right bike will pop along...

though it really sucks for me cause i dont know a single thing about what type i want. LOL
