I think its the same bike one my members of my club was talikng bout. If it is then we looked at it all I say it would need is carbs cleaned and fuel line redone. Can't rember what the tank looked like inside. Might need to b cleaned out. It's got good plastics on it. To me its worth it. My only deal its been sitting up no telling what's gotten under the plastics and in the engine. It might b a diamind ring or it could b a diamond in the ruff.

Harley Davidson patented their sound, so legally... on paper, it goes "potato potato potato"

He's probably askin', does it run?

I wouldn't ride it often or put a lot of hard miles on it. modern sportbikes don't handle like those did these days. unless you just want a classic I'd save a little more money for something made in the last 10 years. it's not expensive.

I was 5 years old when that bike came out

+1 on what Sifu said though. I'm sure parts aren't readily available either.
