Got a new bike!!!! I need your opinion..

So I love out in the middle of the boonies. And I just happened to need to head to the city this morning and on my way there was a guy that I dont know great personally but he knows my family. So I decided to be nice and ask if he needed a ride cause he was atleast 9 miles to closest town. But he needed a ride 4 1/2 miles to his dad's. I gave him a ride and when backing out u ran over something got out and looked and was a blinker to a bike. I asked him where the bike was to this and he took me to an old barn to where a 2002 zx12 set. It has 28000 miles and was dropped. Not horrible just needs stator cover, peg assembly, and some plastics. He asked if I was Interested. I told him yeah but didn't was to get into anything big. He grabbed a key and started it real quick. Fired right up. Went home he called me later and said 1000 bucks and I can have it. After haggling over price we settle for 720.00 bucks. So what's your opinion good deal or no? Just worried about miles. I have all plastics just 1 piece is broke rest is good.

Real bargain mate. Snap it up. Low mileage enough.

Needs a bunch of work. But, I would have paid $720 for it. You can probably fix it up descent enough for $1500-2000 and have a descent rider.
