82 Yamaha 650 Heritage Special

I will spare everyone the details on the bike, but in short it is clean 5200 original miles, never down and I know all the previous owners(2). It is kept in immaculant shape and maintained with very strengent standards. My question, is this a good first bike. Is the "obsolete" technology only going to slow my learning to some degree, and will I still have a huge learning curve to combat when I do buy a new bike. This deal just kind of came up and am in the market for a bike. This one is definetly in my range, and how much is this bike worth?

Smile hi

Hey, I'd guess it's probably worth around $1000... I dunno! My Seca 400 (sporty version, less cc's) Was $800, but it definatly needed some work (tank replaced, new tyres, new seat, carb rebuild, etc...) yeah. I'm really not sure!
Um, about learning, new stuff is definatly gonna be way different. I'm looking at moving up to a Ninja 250 (2002) and, that would be a big change for me! I dunno what to tell you really. Um, yeah. I hope this helps a bit!
Peace. Laura
