Did you get the 250? Without knowing the condition, it could or could not be a good deal. Agreed that if it's running, though again it may need carbs cleaned/synched. I no longer do that kind of work myself, so I leave my bikes with my trusty mechanic. Tires - more often than not old bikes will need new tires. Battery. Fuel - is it stale?
Also, is the tag current? I've bought bikes before at killer deals, the catch was the tags were a few years behind.
A few years ago I got a '81 KZ550 at a good deal, needed the usual stuff like tires, battery, and carbs cleaned. Tag was three years behind.
Rode it to many places including on race tracks, sold it for a handsome profit. IMO worth my selling price because it's been fixed to running condition that I trust my life to.
