    Sounds expensive. Have you been looking long?

    Boot from the carb is more than likely part of the stock air filter. Buy and use stock filters.

    No rust is normal.If it doesn't bother you ,ignore it,or try to clean it up.

    The oil leaks require removing the engine and taking things apart. Have questions?

    I would consider this a very appropriate Halloween purchase...

    SCARY!!!

    Geez you guys. Y'all sound like I should just skip on it completely and maybe I should. I haven't been looking long. I do want something that's original so I can modify it myself as a hobbie.

    Even with that low of miles for a 76. I really like that model and I'm afraid there will not be another opportunity soon for a cb200 in my neck of the woods. What if I can talk him down to 1000$? Would y'all risk it then if it rode solid?

    You never ridden a bike right? you have never fixed a bike? Read on this forum. CB200 is liked for its toaster tank but other than that its not special. Low miles is not that relevant. A bike with 30k miles can be much better purchase if its been regularly maintained and ridden. Sitting for a decade is not good for bikes.

    You would know all this if you used the search function and read older threads.

    In summary:
    -buy best bike you can (its cheaper than "cheap" bike)
    -buy one that is currently in use if possible
    -don't buy into hype: don't buy silly models, don't put pod filters, don't turn handle bars upside down, don't put low bars (clubmans or clip ons) with stock pegs, don't cut the frame, don't take it all apart for a "rebuild".

    You are asking if changing basegasket is a big job - read about it. Head needs to come off as well as cylinders, not sure if you have room for this without removing the engine. Do you have a decent garage? do you want to ride or wrench and pour money on a bike which will not go up in value at same rate as you spend if at all.
    -don't fall in love with a bike or an idea of a bike. I can see you want to justify buying this one real bad. I don't think its a good idea. Be patient.

    as you will see from other threads it is HIGHLY recommended to buy a bike you can just ride - even they will need mechanical love - vs. a project even if an easy one. Not having carb rubbers is a major question mark for me.
