Depending on the miles, its general condition, and how the last owner took care of it... yes, good sled.

1990 Polaris Indy 500
Engine - 488cc liquid cooled
2 cylinder
7.3 gallon fuel tank
hydraulic disc brake
(optional equipment) - Could have hand warmers, backrest, reverse, storage, tow hitch.

Hope that helps, I don't know top speeds or anything involving driving this sled because I've never driven one. I can say that my buddies have indy 400's and 500's and they all run strong and are reliable. Take care of it and it will be good to you.

As for the price, its hard to say without knowing the mileage.

see if you can get him down to 700 or 800, it doesnt seem like a bad deal, but it could be better. And those are great sleds, fun, reliable, decent power, and with psi pipes it will sound sweet [8D] (I know, I have one with PSI's)

I got a 92 Polaris INDY 500. Its a good sled. Lots of power, nice hole shot. Not so good with a stock track, lots of spin outs going up hills. I got 82MPH out of my sled on partially packed field/trail. Revs to 7800 for operating rpm. 7.75inches of travel front and back. Lowriding rear suspension after it has warmed up going through the trails. All in All I give it 7.5 out of 10. 7.5 for performance. 6 for comfort, 8 for reliability, & 7 for looks and work on easability.
