I just bought a 1988 Honda NX 250 yesterday, white/blue. I've spent a lot of time searching the internet and have not heard anything significantly bad about the bike. Two comments keep coming up though: 1: the suspension is soft, 2: the seat can get uncomfortable on a long ride, both can be corrected so I think I got a good deal. I paid $1800 cdn. I've found several for sale on the internet and all seem to go for between $1600 and $2400. I haven't actually rode mine yet, but am really looking forward to it. Of course here in Ontario we have snow right now so it may not happen for a while!
