    Nice blue bike,
    My guess $1000 at most,
    Original tires,
    and check out the fork bolts.

    Looks like a $500 bike to me.

    The fork legs are dropped down about as low as safely possible.

    "Safely" is a relative term at times

    I'ld say $800 max for a TW made in 8/88. 00808_3xyDWDKbiOL_600x450.jpg

    Hammered! The inspection plug on the left case is blown out as is the case cover over the chain. Lots of "Rigging" on this one and I see wires under the headlight not right.
    $500-$700 tops and expect to spend that much and more to get it road worthy after the purchase.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    If it runs well and I really wanted it I would pay $750 to $1,000 for it. All the things I can see that are wrong are little things. I bet the guy is asking $1350 hoping to get a $1000 offer. I would try to get it of $500 (or less) exaggerating difficulty and expense of repairing the bike.
