1996 Kawasaki ZX7R

This guy is selling this bike for $3500. It has 13,000+ miles on it, original paint for that year, a few small scratches in on side (claims bike fell over in driveway). What are your thoughts? Sounds like a good deal...

Probably close to its fair market value assuming the condition is good. Not what I would call high mileage, and if it is in good to excellent cosmetic condition, I'd buy it.

Thanks for the input guys...here is a link to pics of the bike. I'm making arrangements for a dealer in the area to inspect the bike for me (see if infact it is mechanically sound and all that jazz).

I paid $4600 for my 96 ZX7R but it only had 5000 miles on it and was in mint condition, that is a fair price just make sure and adjust the valves when you get it, the 7s are notorious for pitting the cam lobes as the bike gets older.
