Where to put questions for advice on a possible purchase?

Hello, I'm looking at an 1980 1100 with 48k miles and some custom work. New to the site and the 1100's. What thread is appropriate for seeking advice on the bike, whether its probably a lemon, not worth it, worth less than theyre asking, worth more than theyre asking, what to ask the seller ect? Thanks!
