    here are some i like, but i don't know much about them. i want a slow first bike that from the 70/early80 era . i'm looking to spend no more than 2000.

    i really like the honda CM series, they match my 1979 civic 1200! :)

    what are some others i should be looking at? are these good prices?

    Suzuki has the GS series from that era, very comparable to a CM. My friend had a shaft drive GS1000 and his dad had a GS650. Another friend had a cm400 (t I think), he really liked that as a learner bike.

    On older bikes I think a good price will fall in the $1 - $2 per cc. I think that CM250 and the CB350 are way overpriced, everything else seems ok.

    You can find a slightly used GS500 for less than $2000.
