Pick up a can of new Bardahl Mung and Drool Remover on the way there. A few shots of MDR and a quick hose down; you're ready to ride!

Bardahl mung & drool remover works good on foo foo dog removal too. One squirt and no more foo foo fee fee.

Not sure if you bought it, yet. But, the price you mentioned, combined with the pic you posted seems to be in line with NADA. But a lot depends on the working order of the bike.

1982 YAMAHA XS400RJ SECA:
Excellent: $1,050
Very Good: $700
Good: $400
Fair: $175
Poor: N/A

That's an interesting range of prices, usually don't see that big a gap from lowest to highest. Does anybody consider this one "collectible?" (whatever that means)

It's an '82 dude. You'd be hard pressed to find any electronic tach back in the Stone Age.
