If it were me, I’d go with either the sv650 or gs500 only because they’re more recent. I’d go with the sv650 over the gs500 because of the fuel injection, v-twin, liquid cooled engine, plethora of after market parts, and some of the issues I hear about with the gs500. Although, honda’s are built to last, 1989 would still leave me wary… but when going used, you just have to go and see ’em and hopefully test ride ’em.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…
