Why was your dad selling it?When I bought my 98 in june of 2010 it had 1169 miles with a Yosh full exaust, jet kit, and K&N filter. I only paid $2800 for it and it was pristen shape when I bought it. All I did is install the tires off of my totalled FZ-1 and away I went.
In my opinion, this is the one side that Honda screwed up when refreshing the bird in 2000(or 2001, not sure), I just love my 97 dashboard, serious and functionalBeautiful. Sorry you have to sell, but hope she goes to a good home.
Having bought two 'Birds in the last 3 months I've looked over maybe 15 of them? With between 20-120k on the dial.
If they've been looked after there is no difference in the way they feel and ride apart from the suspension.
I still love my Triumphs but I can tell you there is a lot more variety in the health of various Trumpys I've looked at.
I'm a sucker for the digital dash, but as long as the bike was good and the price was fair I'd be confident buying any of the 'Birds with any of the mileages I've seen. Amazing bikes.
