See, that's the point. You will be extremely lucky to find a reasonable, genuine, legal, 4cyl bike within 300k bracket. Thats why gs500 is considered the best entry level real bike

A frreind of mine bought a Honda CBR400RR NC23 for 325,00. It was all genuine and in mint condition. He dropped it twice before he sold it. I was interested in buying it but the second time he dropped the bike he broke the fairing and headlight..... I was still interested in taking it off his hands but he sold it to a stranger. Turns out the last accident he had.....he messed up the frame alignment.
These machines are not just rare but also fragile. A good one is hard to come by but my friend manage to find one in perfect nick.......if he can do it...so can anyone else.
Honest suggestion for your short lived passion.
