    Question Good Deal?

    Having never owned an oilhead, I need some advice, please.

    I am looking at a 1996 R1100RS 54k miles, ABS, heated grips. corbin seat and described in very good condition. I am trying to get a mechanical history, but may not be available. From the pics, it looks ok, but you know how that can go.
    Oilhead experts......what is it worth?
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    He's asking $5K...seems like a pretty fair deal. I checked around and most with ABS are around $6-7K. I have heard that clutches in this model need replacement at around 60-70K miles. How true is this? Thanks
