This is a local bike for sale, $3350. Should I add it to the stable?

I dreamed of one of those as a kid.  A bit pricey but I'd snap it up.

The nearest I came to owning one was a CB77 engined sprint bike [ Hagon frame ] ! Swapped it for a 2.8 Mk1 Jag [ pile of pooh ] that I'd paid 35 for !

It was a lovely engine and a pleasure to work on. I rode a stocker once - fun.

 I've owned several over the years, when sorted, they are a blast to ride. I hate that they've become pricey. Reality is, they are tiny and a little finicky (carbs. usually) and if you're 200lbs. or better, the brakes can be a touch iffy. That said, I've always had a fondness for these bikes and wish I had all versions in my garage (yes, including the Dream). A lot of fun around town. In the old days, I rode these everywhere and recently saw a guy riding one on the freeway (brave soul)....

The engine was perfect, exhaust in poor condition, front fender chopped, speedo looked like shit, center stand bent so the rear wheel was touching, rear fender flap missing, seat poorly redone. Not worth $3300.

 I did however pick this up from him for $1500.
