1987 Honda Magna: Good deal or avoid?
Hello everyone, I am looking for a mid size bike and I came across a 1987 super magna for sale. Just wondering what your thoughts are on whether this is a decent deal or one to avoid.
The good: asking only $1100; it's in good shape mechanically (overall),
The bad: it has 53,000 miles, seller said carbs need to be cleaned, choke is broken (he said he's never really needed it), needs a new rear tire.
I guess I'm most concerned with the miles. Is it just too many miles to make it worth buying? The bike is inexpensive, but is it too old or have too many miles? I don't mind doing some work on it by myself, but has it passed it's half-life?
What are your thoughts on the issue with the carb and choke?
