              According to the pink book (Starfish's guide to vehicle values) if it's running well it's probably worth about $900.

              Only coz it's well old.

              Had an XJ750 and it was a great bike. If it's a runner and you want a cheap bunky commuter, could do a lot worse. If you've already got a couple bikes and no yearning for a resto project, it's a waste of time. And forget trying to sell it for a profit unless you're very patient. Clean it up and you might find some schmuck who will pay $1500 for it but it'll be sitting there for a while, depreciating the spent dollars and taking up space, before you make that extra couple hunj on it.

                  Buy it if it's readily affordable to you, de-rego it & put it in storage. One day it could be worth something (how many of us could have used this advise 20+ years ago?).

                      Most disappointing bike I ever rode. Wanted one, the specs just suited me, wanted to like it but a short ride convinced me to make it even shorter. Gave it back to my brother and he agreed it is boring.

                        Not a massive fan of Cafe racers (because I can't fit on one) but this looks pretty cool
