I purchased my 2004 1300c in 2017. It had 2256 miles on it. It had been kept in a climate controlled garage, so it did not have temperature extremes.

It got a fresh oil change, new battery and tires.

I drained the gas and filled it up with fresh gas and Seafoam.

Oh, I changed the air filter last Spring.

I will likely change the coolant before next Spring.

I am now on my second set of tires, over 10,000 miles and it runs great.

I bought my 2006 VTX 1800C on 12/31/2018 with exactly 5,000 miles on it for $5,200. Ran great, guy was 2nd owner, and he rode it once a week to the store. I replaced the rear tire on 02/21, changed oil/filter on 03/07, replaced brake pads, flushed the brake fluid, changed front tire all in August, and had to replace the battery in October. I've got 14,352 on my last fillup. It rides like a champ, and about to change the rear tire again.

I have a 2006 and 2007 with low mileage. They are in excellent shape. It's possible that the one you are considering is also in excellent shape, if it's been ridden occasionally. Fuel, tires, battery, fluids need to be checked for old age.
