I am mainly concerned about reliability of an older two stoke (am I going to be wrenching every night?) and the off-on powerband in the city.

Thanks for any and all advice,

I give it a 2

I had one and it was VERY fun and very flickable. I couldn't help but grin ear to ear when hitting the powerband, just be sure to hold on tight!

I would say that if it's currently running good, has good compression and is a solid bike, go for it. Small 2 strokes don't require alot of maintenance and are very fun to ride.
Oh, and make sure the title and registration is completely sorted BEFORE you buy it.

Bonz, I'll post up some on another thread, so's we don't completely hijack Skippy's thread

That is one sweet ride. Are those Toomy pipes? That is real nice, the daytona head is also a nice little touch.
