I've rode dirtbikes most my life and got my first street bike. A 2000 v star 650 classic. Picked it up for a steal but has 37000 miles.
From what the seller told me it was maintained regularly at a local reputable bike shop. Only issue is a slight oil leak from under the clutch case. I read that this could be a loose screw causing it, and I went and checked them all. One still needed tightening near the bottom, but their were 2 I couldn't check at the very bottom blocked by the frame and kickstand.
I have a backseat just missing the front mount to it, seller bought it on eBay and said didn't come with front mount for the seat. I just leave it off for now.
There is a slight scuff on the front fender and a golf ball size dent on the tank.
Last issue is the brake light doesn't activate when I press the front brake.
Sorry for the crappy cell pics, was the first night riding it home with the cheapo helmet that came with it and a huge smile on my face
