CA plated w/CA reg. I was aware of the stator problem before I looked at it. Owner told me the e-starter wasn't working. I didn't need an explaination since the wiring was all butchered up. Came w/extra set of dirt wheel/knobbys. Plenty of oil leaking around the bottom end. My guess was from a leaking countershaft seal. Price was too high for the condition it was in, so I passed. Don't own a 'Berg, but I appreciate them (and ALL the threads here) just the same.
