You can get Mahindra Classic for around 1.5 to 2.0 lac.The build quality is very reliable. Maintenence and good running of the same could be of problem and would need frequent visit to mechanic for keeping it in running condition.

Hi Tushar,
I dont completely agree with Shiva. Its a very cliched and biased answer. You can go ahead with the classic. Even the 540 is a good choice. Just have an expert mech check the chassis and engine for damage. Check how much it would cost for doing up the engine. It is a tough one, and worth investing in.
What you must keep in mind is that, earlier though engines were long lasting, they need more regular maintainance. Its cheaper than modern bikes to maintain though. So be ready for something like that.
