    offer $1300 and don't pay more than $1500. He's going to say "but it's got V&H and the <stuff> is new and it's blah blah blah...." but end of the day

    -it's 18 years old
    -you can find newer for $1500
    -the V&H is now worth 10% of what it cost new
    -new chain/sprocket isn't worth mentioning

    If i was a guy who was into collecting retro sport bikes. I might be all over it after a good deep mechanicle inspection.

    But as others have said, you can pick up a newer CBR F2, or F3 for the same price, and get alot more bike out of the deal.
