Sweet deal if you had some time (and knowledge) to get it back to running order

It shouldn't take much. Change fluids. Probably needs a new battery. Check the valves & clean the carb. Pretty good deal, but not a lot of margin to flip if it needs very many parts.

Thanks Marc. It's in the back of my truck right now. Just bought it.
Looking forward to introducing the fun of riding to someone else!

Nice! I was second in line, the guy told me you were on your way when I called. He then called me two different times to let me know it was gone. :)

Funny. Bill (seller) mentioned your name twice while I was there. I didn't put it together.
A fantastic little bike - but the handle bars may end up on my wall of "how did it run like that" trophies!

Dropping it off at its new home:

Wow, that guy has a lot of stuff including a big pile of handlebars. Speaking of which, I need to raise the height of the bars on my WRR and add some HDB guards. I don't know where to start and am totally clueless. Somebody school me.

p.s. don't forget, my last bike was a KLR. $$$
