Don't know if this is the right forum but I have a question about a bike I'm looking to buy.
Hello everyone. I'm looking into a honda cl200 for my first bike. From my research it was only made for the 1974 year but it's basically a cb200. The bike I'm looking at its on Craigslist and here is the add:
"This bike was only produced ONE YEAR and offered in one color,Candy Riviera Blue. I've had this bike for over a decade and got it from a friend who got it out of a barn after 10 years. It has 6214 miles and the chrome is in pretty good shape. I installed tires on it a few years back and re-creamed the fuel tank. I had it running after cleaning the carbs in lemon juice and water but let it sit after that. It runs poorly right now and needs the carbs cleaned again. It ran on and off over the last few years when I had time to redo the carbs.
This makes a great commuter bike and will run 45-55 mph. It also is a pretty rare model and people always ask about it.
Here is a recent video 2 months ago of it starting and running."
The bike from the pictures looks very good. The guy is redoing the inside of the tank. He sounds like a straight up guy. He is asking $1,150. In your opinion is that a good price, should I try to haggle or should I look into something else.
