More than fair if it runs. Looks a bit neglected but you could turn her into a real gem with a little paint.;)

Put a wrench on the crankshaft and see if it turns over...if not walk away.

One other thing...those bikes 750/900 were prone to exhaust valves burning, just a heads up so if you can swing it for cheaper or get a leak down test done it may save you some headache.

He said it runs and drives, also said i need a battery, do these have a kick start backup? im bringing a compression gauge with me saturday to check it out, if it has a couple of burnt exhaust valves that would be ok for the money. Thinking about doing a cafe racer anyone know a good website for cafe parts?
