It 's not too old, the milage is average to high...I guess it boils down to whether you trust the seller and the extent of the dings & scratches. If you cold get it for $2400 I guess you'd be okay.

If worst comes to worst...You can get gixxer motor parts that will pop right in and you'd have a sleeper.

If you have an extra $2000 you could have APE do a 907 or 955 big bore kit on it and dial the suspension and you'd have one hell of a bike.

or for that $2400 + $2000 ($4500) you could get a gixxer or ZX

remember that this price is base on a "clean and good shape" MC plus I would try to find out what the repair manual says about the next major maintenance step for that bike. Such as a major overhaul.
Good luck
