Hi, I've been on this forum for a while just lurking reading posts, but now I have a question. I found this 1989 Ninja 500, with 12,000 miles on it for 500 dollars on craigslist. It would be my first bike, I got my license in August through the MSF, I'm nineteen and in college right now, so the price is appealing. I was just wondering what your opinions are. I'm probably going to check out the bike in person this weekend.
This is what the ad says:
1989 kawasaki ninja ex 500- 12000 miles
New clutch, rear tire, battery and oil filter last season. -over $300 put into it
The body has all the plastics, but some are scuffed and damaged....not a dream to look at.
The motor runs well...no problems for as long as i have owned it.
The only downside of this sale is that the chain has fallen off of the rear sprocket, and will cost approximately $150 to fix. Selling as is.
Great starter bike or cheap ride.
