Agree with above. Also the "backyard paint job" can hide a lot of flaws, like cracked frame, bondo etc unless you have someone who knows body work etc check it out. Plus it's an 885cc engine, which is fine, but the 955 [yr2000+] is more sought after.
Good condition 885's go for 3000 to 3500 all kitted out.
