there is a bike that I am looking into, to restore. It's a 1989 Honda CB1. The bike has been sitting for a long time (over 5 years)., it has no tail light, headlight, or turn signals. The tank also has a dent. Since it has been sitting for a long time, I am assuming it will need a carb re-build, new battery, the tank flushed and re-coated, along with a few other things. I dont really know how much a bike like this is worth, that needs the things I mentioned. It dosent seem that the owner really cares too much for it because it is covered in an inch of dust. What would be a resonable offer for a this bike?... and what would you also look into before buying it (mechanics and stuff)??
any thoughts welcome.
