So I'm buying a first bike. I've already gotten a lot of feedback on what to look for from friends, something around 600-750cc so it's slow enough to learn on but fast enough that I'll be happy with it once I'm comfortable. Specifically, I'm looking at buying a 1990 Ninja ZX750 with 16k miles on it. I'm looking for something cheap, so that old is what I'm after, and the guy is willing to sell it to me for 900. It has a two minor problems though, first the front coolant rail behind the header pipes has a leak, it doesn't leak while its running because the metal around it expands but when you turn it off it drips out coolant for a minute, I've been told around 10-20 drops and I trust the seller. Secondly the engine burns a little oil and smokes a little when started up but not while running, so it could probably use a top end rebuild eventually. It does run just fine though and has no engine noise when idling or all the way up to redlining. 900 seemed like a pretty fair price for it to me, all things considered, and I haven't seen anything comparable going for anything close to that. Try to keep the crushing of my dreams to a minimum and the negative feedback to a constructive manner, I'm pretty excited about finally getting a bike, regardless of the fact that it isn't a perfect one, but did want to hear what those more knowledgeable on the matter than I had to say.
