Assuming it runs decent and has proper maintenance, $1000 isn't bad, even if it is a 20 year old bike. It actually would be a good bike to learn on. When you're ready to buy something newer, you'd probably be able to resell it for what you bought it for.
My first sportbike was a 1986 Ninja 600R and it was absolutely bulletproof. Those bikes can take a beating and keep going.
