I just bought a very nice 1997 32,000 mile Concours for $1800, had to spend $120 to fix the brakes.
There are a plethora of Concours' C10s on CL locally, ranging from $2K to $3.5K.
I looked at ST1100s but there are a lot less of them about and they start more around the $3K mark.
Having ridden it for a couple of weeks, I've decided for the money it is a fine motorcycle.
