1998 Sportsman 500

I am looking to purchase a second ATV for my son (Cheap) and I am possibly looking at a 1998 Sportsman 500 with 1600 miles. It is fairly clean for the year and runs great. This unit has universal joints for shafts instead of the CV joints. Does any one know about these older units and problems or disadvantages of these?

I too just found a original 1998 with 24 miles on it. These old units are great! Has been sitting in storage all its life. I paid $1900 if that helps.
