Your thoughts on a bike

I have a buddy that wants to buy a bike and he wanted me to look out for one. So i found a 1990 XR 250 at a dealership that they just got in on a trade in. They are asking $1,500 for it. It is in good shape and runs great. There are a few things that needs replaced such as the front tire, front sprocket, and the baffle is missing. Is $1,500 a good price or should he try to talk them down and how much?

I wouldn't pay any more then a grand for it. Good reliable bike. You will probrably need some suspension work done to it if you want to do some serious off road riding. I think that year had a cartridge fork [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
