Question, can this bike run with low compression like this without tearing into it right away? I'm wanting to ride it a few miles (maybe 100 miles) to see how it rides before overhauling the engine.
Does $5k sound like a good price for this Beemer? I know that since I don't posses special tools and the time I will be ready to shell out rebuild costs for the engine.
Thanks!

Steve

Photos would be the only way to tell you it's $5K worth or not
