1995 Speed Triple: buy or avoid?

A local independent bike shop has a 95 orange and black Speed Triple with 8k miles on it that I'm thinking of buying. It's bulky and heavy for a sport bike, but for some reason I'm attracted to it. It's retailing for $5895, is very clean, and comes with a 30-day "front-to-back" warranty. Questions are:

1. what is the bike "really" worth?
2. any mechanical things that are especially troubleprone?
3. are parts obtainable should I need them?

Any thoughts and comments will be appreciated!

Thanks.

the bike is heavy, but has loads of roamp, as far as the price goes, it's high, I have been trying to sell 98 t 509 speed triple for about 2 months,dealers want to give you 4000.00 for it and the cycle trader market in ohio goes in the mid to low 5k's. this is a much better model than a 95, you should be able to find one for that same price. want to by mine?
