For $2K I was steering him toward something newer.
I grew up on these and loved them. However, it's a 1983 and he'll be wrenching on it just like the 70's CB650.

Going from a 19" front wheel to a 16" front will take some getting used too as well as the power curve on the V4. They're great bikes and rock solid but, something goes wrong...well splitting the case isn't fun.
