So... I took a look at a bike yesterday, $3K, 2001 Ninja 500, 25K km
Still lookin' for my first one.
Bad: Probably parked in the rain and generally not well looked after. Looked like rust on rear brake lever, exhaust, clutch adjustment dial, possibly on the brake discs? Also laid down at least twice, once on each side.
First of all, is it worth it?
And secondly, rust is usually bad but I don't know if motorcycles are supposed to have 0 rust, or some rust is normal? Are there any parts where some rust is normal/acceptable and where there shouldn't be any?
