    just a heads up before anyone drives long distances, i live in st auggie and checked this motor out today. Looks a lil rough but not to bad, he couldn't start it unless he used starter fluid. Once going it would only idle at about 1/4-1/2 throttle or it would putter out. Sounded very strong and good just issues with starting. He was a little iffy on where the motor came from but seemed legit although i'm not sure i would fully trust this guy. Ended up passing one the motor but bought a used fly rod and reel for $15 so i was stoked. His business is literally a fishing rod and reel junk yard so its a cool place to visit. If you are mechanically inclined you could get this motor running perfect and easily sell it for $1500-1800.

    From what I understand, starting fluid is HORRIBLE for 2 smokes

    yea the fact that he was only starting it that way is what turned me off to buying it. Could be a nice motor if in the right hands.
