ABS model or not (decals on the front fender)? If ABS, you can easily test the rear ABS. It probably won't work, but you might get lucky. FJRs through 2005 had a problem with the ABS unit for the rear break lines getting stuck unless the unit was cycled during the brake flush. Just stomp that rear brake hard on the test ride and you'll know. Front is trickier to test.
I have a well-farkled 2005 with [front] ABS and currently 110K miles that I'll be selling in the near future. I'm planning on $3000. Russell Day Long, Racetech Gold fork valves and springs, fork brace, Shad SH48 with Admore lights, Garauld Stiffy, Project R LED tail light replacement, wigwag headlights with F2 LED bulbs, T-Rex sliders, R-Gaza pannier guards, Homelink, full synthetic for the last 25K miles. Looks great for a 15 year old motorcycle, but there are scuffs. For low miles, they'll want (and get) more for theirs.
I'd recommend looking for a more recent model with a few more miles. If you like the 2005 because blue is your color, that would be 2006, 2012, 2016, 2018, and [some] 2019. Set your budget; buy the best you can find for that price.
FWIW, I'm not selling, yet. I need to get the 2016 I purchased from a dealer in New Hampshire down here to Texas, first....
