Talking 1988 Honda Shadow & 1982 Honda CB900c--advice

Someone I work with restores bikes and he is trying to "make room" for some new bikes.

He has offered me a fully running 1988 shadow 600 vlx (it needs tires and a tail light) AND a 1982 cb900c (not running, problems listed below) for $2,000. Would you consider this a good deal?

The cb900c needs new carbs, it's missing a small fairing piece that covers the throttle cable, a side mirror and a new clutch cable and a few misc cosmetic parts. According to him it starts but won't rev passed 7000RPM, could this be BECAUSE of the carbs?

Edit: the 600 has 11,000 miles on it and the 900 has 23,000
Thanks for any advice with these bikes.

Can't see pictures at work but sounds pricey for two 80's bikes with one not running and needing potential carb work. Will look again tonight.

^ Agreed... does sound a little high.

Oh and phee... post here: https://acurazine.com/forums/car-talk-5/official-motorcycles-scooters-thread-719775/ . A lot more eyes will likely see it in there
