Looking at an "84 SC700 with 9K miles. Photos are deceiving but looks very nice and well cared for. Guy wants $1999 for it but he's moving overseas. I'm in at $1100. Comments?

Also found an 88 Hawk 650GT. Owned by a 70 y/o gent. Not raced or trashed. Low miles as well. A bit more $$$ as he's asking $3K. Comments?

Never owned or ridden either model so I'm looking for wisdom. The TW needs a stable mate. :):)

So I've heard. Guess why so many are trashed from racing. Kids bike though? Wonder if my gray hair and paunch would detract from the fine lines of the machine:(. What's interesting is as I age my body is conforming to the riding opposition of a crotch rocket. Bent over, legs somewhere behind me, head down.

Hawk's a nice bike but getting parts may start to be a problem. If the SC has a clean title and the valve tappets don't rap get it.
