chosing between two shadows

I am chosing between 2 honda shadows 600, year 2000. I would appreciate your advise on what to do.
Facts: I am a new rider and this is my first bike. In my country, ordering a bike takes months. Honda showroom has two used bikes, both honda shadows, same year.
Honda shadow black: looks well maintained, but what do i know? Manager says its a good bike but cant give me warranty because he doesnt know where it has been serviced.done 4000 KM.
Honda shadow yellow: Owned by previous manager of the showroom so has full service history at honda. Manager recommends completely even though i will have to paint it. done 11,000 km
Black: 4200 US $
Yellow: with a proper paint job: US $ 5700
Out here, its hard to find good bikes. The only other choice is a brand new harley sporster which is going for US $ 7800, yet i am 5. 6 feet and weigh 230 lbs, so doesnt seem to fit and a little high for my starter bike.
What do you suggest?

I would test drive the black and if all seems well go with it listen for ticks and excessive vibration as they can lead to later expensive mechanical work all you are going to do with a harley is pay for the name
