looking into cr250

Hello everyone. I'm looking to get my first bike. I found a used 1998 honda cr250 on craigslist. The guy is asking for 1600. Just wondering what y'all thought about it and if it was a bad deal. He is willing to negotiate the price. Im meeting him this week to look the bike over. To me it looks a little to beat up to be worth 1600, but what do i know. Here are some pics. Any help would be greatly appreciated!






It looks OK but 1600 would probably be the top of the range. Go and check it out, if it looks good and the motor is fresh, offer 1400-1500 and if it is a little rough but the motor is decent, go for 1200 or 1300. I got my 97' cr250 in July for 1300 (he was asking 1500 and I offered 1300 and he took it :D ). It was in a little better shape but I think I got a good deal. If it doesn't look as good in person, make that clear to him and he will lower the price more. I would probably pay 1500 max for it, so try and get it for 1500 or cheaper

I don't think it looks that bad, After all it is a 15 year old bike.  Check the normal stuff . I hate when some guy spit shines his old bike to sell it. I'd almost rather it dirty. This way I can see if things are leaking, Whether it be coolant , oil, or blow by.
