Thinking about a CBR 900 RR

Just seen a '99 CBR 900 RR for sale locally. I've been looking for a older sport bike for a little while now and am looking for opinions on the 900's. The bike has about 24000km's on it and it has some damage to the fairing and windshield (not sure how bad as I have yet to see it). He's asking $4200 or best offer.

I wouldn't may more than $3,500 for it.

Wow, that's really low mileage (kilometerage? haha) but I agree with SSS...$3500 sounds about right for that bike. A very good friend of mine has had the exact same bike for a few years now and he's had great luck with it.

everything is more expensive in alberta though guys... I mean used cars are nuts.. you see '99 j-bodies in edmonton going for like $5k. used cars are twice as much than near montreal... he'll either have to buy and ship and/or spend forever driving to get fair market prices... that was my experience in Alberta the last three summers anyways. Last year I bought a j-body in qc for $1500 and sold it for $4400 when I got there. paid my trip and then some.

Great bike. My cousin owned a 99 for 5 years. no mechanical issues at all.

It's a little nervous when leaned over, but I ride an RC so I'm probably a bit spoiled.
