Hi and welcome,
It does not have reverse. Shocks do not drop down.
I would look at Miles and what has been done to bike as far as repairs. and maintenance.
tire condition.
If timing belts have been changed.
how long has bike been sitting or stored.
Oil leaks on shocks or brakes and on motor.
I have had to do a lot of work on my bike . It's and 82 1100I with 68,000 when I picked it up for $1200.
I can do the work myself. but if I had to have a mechanic do it. it would have cost way too much for what the bike is worth. But now My bike is worth 2 grand.
some things to think about.
I and will do work I didn't think I could thanks to folks and there know how . A lot of folks can do the same.

Welcome to the board. Sorry no help here.
