Hi

Welcome to forum.

The wings will last a long time, strike that a very long time.

Look after it, service it etc.

its a good vintage, condition, history and price will determine if a good buy.

Put some pictures up if you go for it.

Depends on lots of things. How does it look? Does it idle right? Ask to see any maintenece records. What is the asking price? Privcate party, or dealer? (I like private partys. They can tell you anything you wnat to know about the bike) Take it out for a test drive.

So I take it it has running issues. That should not realy be a problem. Is the dealer willing to get the bike running smooth or is it a no warranty deal. The price seems pretty good for a dealer. Is that like 4100 or 4900 dollars

Or is it 4k plus expenses to get it running correctly. If that it's Buyer Beware

The more info you supply us the better an answer you can get. Little info statements and questions give vague answers back.

If the tires haven't been replaced, check for cracks in the tread and side walls.. Also you might check the nubs under the foot pegs.. [Worn or Not] That can give you a little insight on how the bike was ridden.........

As already stated, more information is needed in order for anyone to give you a thumbs up or down on this bike.
If you are unsure of the value of a bike needing a little OR a lot of work, maybe you need to take a close motorcycling friend along to the dealer to check this bike out.
To me the price ($4100 or $4900)sounds too good to be true. If it is $4000 plus the repairs the dealer is going to do, you better get an agreed upon price for the work or you may be getting spirally inclined AKA SCREWED!
