Thinking of buying a 1986 motorcycle?

Thinking of buying a 1986 motorcycle, with 61000 KM, needs a fuel relay. He is asking $1200 Canadian. Do you think it is worth the money? It's a 1986 honda shadow 750

Other answer:

cody:
The 1986 Honda Shadow 750 has a carburetor. There is no such as a "fuel relay."
It *might* be worth $200 for parts.
Nomadd:
No. Any vehicle whose owner says "It only needs" is a bad bet. That's a scam every time. If that's all it needed, he'd fix it and sell the bike for a lot more money. It's a $25 part and takes 5 minutes to put in, so it doesn't make sense that he'd not do that.
It has nothing to do with being carbureted. The bottom of the tank is too low for gravity feed so it has a fuel pump.

Does it run?? Any bike that doesn't run, you never know what other problems it has??
Only buy this if you're a gearhead looking for a project.

LOL – would you be willing to buy my 86 Honda Rebel?? It also doesn't run. Just kidding, it's a parts bike for my new Rebel.

Offer $100.

Then walk away.

Probably needs: Tires, control cables, oil change/filter, fork seals, teardown to figure out what is actually wrong, tank flush and rust removal, fuel lines, fuel filter, and a few other odds and ends before it is safe for the road.

That bike will need a lot more than an fuel relay.
Bertsta:
Non runner needs to be around $500, no more than you can get by wrecking it if it turns out to be rooted.
