    It has come down to these two bikes, one of these will be my very first street bike. CB750F (19,500 miles) comes with a CB900 parts bike, and he is asking $1200 for both bikes. Both have clean titles. CB750 is in good condition. GS500E (14k miles) is in good condition, but without a tach. Plus I'd have to wait for him to get the title in his name (could be up to a month)... and i've been itching to ride real bad, don't know if i can wait that long. $1500 firm for it too.

    Considering they both are in good condition, which do you think would be better? I am no stranger to bikes (street bikes I am... but riding a bike is natural for me cause of my CR250R). Is '82 too old?

    Purposes for my first bike: Cruise around town, maybe go a couple towns over (100-500mile trips max), learn the basics of the road, and overal just have something to go out on for a couple of hours every night.

    I just don't know how problematic the older bike will be compared to the newer Suzuki. :x:

    Came home with the CB750F for $1050. I'll get some pics up tomorrow.
