It depends on when the 19k was put on it.  If long ago, the bike needs to be completely relubed and the soft parts (hoses and seals) replaced.  If all that was done lasst month and THEN the 19k was ridden, it might be all right.  But those rubber bits are probably perished.  Also the fuel tank/injection stuff may need to be cleaned out or replaced.  Ifthe tank is rotted, that's $600 for a used one right there.  Again, it depends on when the miles were accumulated and if this stuff has already been done.

I have a 2004 EVT, the recall's  were done by the previous owner and I hope it was final version of the engine recall. It did have the single plate clutch which failed and left me stranded in Gettysburg PA. I bought the double plate parts on the wildguzzi swapmeet and swapped it myself. The used parts along with new plates,springs,bolts,washers gaskets, etc. Was in the neighborhood of $400.00. O and of the members here graciously let everyone borrow his special tools. Image a tool of my own to hold the  new input gear (I will let you borrow that )
That bike also has the issue of the rubber fuel line coming off the the fuel pump (which is inside the tank) the fuel hose was not of the type used with Ethenol gasoline, so it would degrade. The solution is to remove the pump (easy job) replace the fuel line with some from any auto parts store secure with stainless steel oetiker clamps. The cost would be about $20.00 and 1 hour of your time.

So in short I would
1) get the Vin contact a Guzzi dealer and see if the recall have been completed.
2) Remove the valve cover take pictures post the here and ask for input if it looks like they are done.
4) If the engine recalls look good get a quote for the tools and parts for the single to dual plate
 clutch swap (mine lasted 10K)
5) negotiate from there

If you are willing to convert the clutch and the recall work was done on the engine it is a sweet ride.

Some of the early '03 EVs (mine) have an external fuel pump located in the rear left, under the frame downtube. When I replaced the hose my only concern was that it could handle the pressure from the fuel pump. You can buy braided hose ($$$) if you want (it sure looks good) but I don't think it is strictly necessary. vf84pc's comment about the clamps is true for all the lines in the fuel system IMO.

Check the bike carefully to verify the 19,000 miles.  The odometer drive on the ITI speedometers is a common failure point.  Gauges that were swapped out under warranty did not have the replacement odometer matched with the original.
