I think the best any of us could say about is it a good deal is, possibly. When the guy says the charging system doesn't work, that's a red flag. Exactly what is wrong? Did he completely fry every possibly thing in the electronics on it, then it's a very bad deal. There isn't that much to getting the charging system working so if there isn't something major wrong with then why didn't he just fix it. Max to get it working might be $300 maybe $500 so why is he dumping it? He knows that parts that old a bike is getting extremely hard to find. But you can look at it like this, education is expensive and this bike would give you a challenge and you would learn a lot. I really really question anything electrical on an older bike like that. Can he get it started even? Says new battery so he should be able to. It's a gamble at best.
