What is considered high milage for a 1975 CB?

First post!

I'm looking at buying a 1975 Honda CB360T. It's in very nice shape cosmetically, and started on the second kick from cold. But, it has about 13,500 miles. If we assume the bike was regularly maintained, which the seller claims, is 13,500 a lot?

Also, they guy is looking for 2,250. Seems fair to me based on what I've been able to find on the internet, but would gladly take advice on the price as well.

Milage means nothing on old bikes. These things are capable of going 100K miles easy if they are properly maintained. What gets them is age, everything dries out, rubber, gaskets, and cables. What matters is how well these things were maintained. $2250.00 does not sound bad for a bike in good shape.
