Just make sure it has current registration, no back fees. The seller is the owner of it. If it is an out of the state (Arkansas) bike make your homework before buying it, because you may or may not be able registering it in California. Let us know.

Thank you all for your help. I bought the one from offer up in Lake L.A. It seems to be a good little bike,but needed to be broken in still. I will put up some pictures when I upload them to my computer.

Great. I had two of them, 1999 and 2002. First one came as a solo with 47 kilometers on odo, I then attached a Dnepr sidecar to it. Just replace that broken front right blinker lense and you are good. :D
Keep us posted and post a few pictures.

Well here she is folks! Sorry it took a bit. It took a while for me how to figure out how to upload these pictures.Found out I could use my dropbox. I have already put 600km on the bike. I absolutely love it! I am being weary of the break-in period though and am looking forward to many an adventure with it. The bike is in pretty decent shape. Aside from the broken turn signal lens it has a decent dent on the front fencer where you can see the red primer. I do not mind though. I want to do some camping with the bike and helps me feel a little less bad for the future dings it will probably get.
