I have the opportunity to purchase an '81 750c. The guys asking $1500. I've posted links to a few pics of it. Is this a good price? 22,500 miles

If it runs as good as it looks in pictures, that's not a bad price.

It really depends on how well the mechanical has been maintained. Has it had regular oil changes and lube, valve adjustments, cam chain adjustments, drive chain, brakes, forks, etc.? Does it charge? It needs to make 14.4v at the battery at 3000 rpm, or there's money to spend. Stuff like that can change a "good deal" real quickly on these old bikes.

We were hacked, but we're back, thought I'd let you know.

Thanks for the help. I bought the bike for a little cheaper. Needs some carb work. I plan on removing them and taking a look (maybe rebuild) them this weekend. Wish me luck!

Thanks. I have been reading through the carb rebuild book. I don't feel comfortable removing the carbs from the rails at my skill level (just yet). Is that essential?

It is if you need to replace the fuel rail o-rings. Don't use carb cleaner. It will eat the old rubber.
