If it is the red and beige Nomad, you are getting the best color produced. I had one for 6 months. Bought it in '11 and couldn't get used to the speedo on the tank.
The clunk can be minimized by short shifting from 1st to 2nd. It is just a clunk, no a grind so no worries.
Take it for a ride and make sure everything works including the cruise.
