They were probably over the GVWR, but not by a crazy amount.
I'd be far more concerned about odometer not working. That bike is almost 20 years old. 21K is only a little over a thousand miles a year. That doesn't seem like much. Even with just modest use, that bike could easily have 50-60K on it. With average use, it would be pushing 90K+.
