Know that most shops will probably refuse to do repairs on your bike if it is more than 10 years old. Most all shops use this same standard. Parts availability is the main problem. In any event, below are things to look for if getting a used bike.

Does the engine start easy and idle smoothly? Does it accelerate without hesitation?
Any smoke when it starts or when pulling away from stop light? (Bad valve guides).
Any smoke when riding at 30mph? (Piston rings worn or possible previous seize up).
Does the clutch engage and disengage smoothly? Clutch lever easy to pull?
Any oil or coolant fluids leaking after a ride?
Do all gages work? Lights, horn and flashers?
Any red lights on the gages lit up? Any computer codes flashing?
Do front and back brakes operate and stop smoothly?
Is the motor oil pretty clean or really dirty? (Sign of how well the owner has cared for the bike).

Is the oil "white-ish"? (water in the oil. If motor is water cooled it's usually bad water pump seals).
Any funny sounds from the gear box? Anywhere else?
Does it shift smoothly up and down the full gear range? Neutral light come on properly?
Sprockets still have rounded tips not pointed? Well lubricated chain?

Good tires? How old is the battery? All lights work properly?
Is the upholstery good? Plastics cracked or broken?
Gas tank badly rusted inside? Do the wheels run true or weave?

Do the forks look bent from a side view or front view?
Does it drive nice or is the bike squirrely to drive? How about around curves and corners?
Ever been wrecked? What service work has been done in the past?
With the handlebars driving straight ahead, is the front wheel pointing a slightly different direction?
Do all accessories work properly?
Ask what doesn't work on the bike. What known problems do exist?

.
These are things to look for. I hope this helps.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Not a good idea to buy USED power chair batteries. Even new ones just have a 3-4 year life span. But yes, you can buy used batteries.

You can buy a video card and use it on this board. You need to buy a video card with a PCI connection.

If you are planning on buying a new motherboard, I would not go and buy a video card. The newer boards use a PCI Express 2.0 X16 connection and you would be better off buying a newer card to accompany that new motherboard
