G'day everyone, I'm new to this forum, and I am hoping to draw on your collective experience with some advice for someone looking to buy their first bike. I looked at a bike yesterday, a 1985 Honda VT250F which was a very reasonable bike which I liked. Needs a LH muffler and a LH mirror which I have already sourced (I have a mate with a VF400F that is unregistered so I was going to "borrow" them ) What I am worried about, is that I've heard these bikes are notorious for spinning crank bearings, and that the cams and cam chains can be problematic. The bike ran fine, with a bit of valve clatter when started (cold), but it hasn't had an oil change in at least two years of being a daily commuter . Even though it runs fine now, I am worried the engine will have little life left in it (it's clocked up 60,000kms). What does everybody think? Should I just walk away? I will also be looking at a Honda CB250N tomorrow, which I don't like as much as they are heavy and apparently pretty dull rides, but they are bulletproof by all accounts! Cheers, Anto.
