Vintage Kawasaki

I'm having a great time on the V and I'd like a Tiger.
But, I've been watching a 1982 KZ 1000 LTD on Craigs. The price has dropped several times, now at $999. Sounds like it's in great shape. Picture is nice, carbs rebuilt, good rubber, 13,000 miles.
Anyone have experience with this bike?
I'm seriously thinking about it.

i had a 1980 kz 750 ltd rode well but i got close to the red line and bent some valves. might be typical for a old bike not sure. and another thing i remember when it rained heavy id start losing cylinders due to bad electrical i imagine. but it was my first bike and only payed 1000 for it.

I have a 1981 KZ750 LTD that was my main ride until I got my versys a month ago. Awesome bike, I imagine the 1000 would be even better (faster and louder anyway). $999 sounds like a pretty good price, as long as it is in good shape.
