[QUOTE=Christ;114451]That's what I'm looking at doing, but I don't want to "really fix it"... I'd prefer that it be running, but I can fix minor damage and cosmetic blemishes.

Sounds like a good plan. I'd buy a runner, but only if it's well under KBB pricing. If I bought a non-runner, I'd want it to at least crank and be mostly assembled. I wouldn't mind a few weekends of cleaning carbs and fixing vacuum leaks, though. It's always nice to learn a bike by fixing it up (as long as it runs eventually).
