Lurker looking at an 86 KLR advice appreciated

I have been looking at these machines for a couple of years as a 2nd bike. I cam across a 1986 model with 4300 miles on it. Mainly used for short errands by an older gentleman.

Anything I should know about a bike this old? Parts still available? I have seen pics, which look very good, but not the bike. I am going to go look at it tomorrow.

Any idea on the value? He is asking 2k

No great treks planned but thinking it would be a great change of pace from my VFR and go place it could not dream of.

Closed the deal, its in the garage

I posted a picture in the gallery. Was out for a brief ride today as it got a little warm here in Cincinnati. Seems to run like a champ. Not sure how to get that pic to sho up here.
