Wow, $500 for an 85 ZL900 that is in "pretty good shape", you should buy a lottery ticket too. That is a steal of a deal. For that money, all you usually get is a parts bike that rides home in your pick up truck. I have owned one for 2-3 years and I can tell you that they are a blast to ride. Like Eric said, due to the small gas tank, they are not touring bikes, but, I just put a tail bag on mine that I can keep a 2 gallon gas can in, so, there are work arounds. Some put on larger tanks if you want to do that, but it changes the look a bit. Anyway, keep an eye on the water pump and the fuel valve, and hold on tight.
4 cylinders are better than 2
