1995 Thunderbird

I was wondering if anyone can give me any feedback on this bike.I am making a trip out to ohio to look at a 1995 thunderbird with 16k miles on it.I was wondering what should I be looking for mechanically as far as possible or telltale issues that the bike may have. Cosmetically the bike also appears to be slightly above average as far as overall condition cosmetically. I had heard that the two main issues with these models was the clutch aswell as the seals on the front end. From what I understand the clutch issue can run around a 1000 to repair. But it supposedly gives you a fair warning its on its way out when you listen to it with engine running would love to know what to listen for. Also if anyone can throw out a ballpark on what they feel its worth let me know making a trip out there for business already just hoping to have a different mode of transportation for the way home.

Wrong forum. You want the classic triples forum, this is the thunderbird 1600/1700 twin cruiser forum. Go here and you'll be far more likely to get answers... https://www.triumphrat.net/hinckley-classic-triples/

Mods, you may want to add "1600/1700" in the title of the 2 Tbird cruiser forums, as this happens quite a bit.
