My friend really wants a bike. This ones about a mile away. We went and checked it out. The description pretty much says it all... except... He cleaned the carbs out, put new spark plugs on it and it still doesnt run. he says it has an electronic ignition, no points. im thinking dirty old gas or water in the tank is keeping it from firing up and running well, he stored it outside all winter. We talked him down to 150 cash. any suggestions for my buddys first bike?
think its worth it?

one more thing, I kicked it over and it didnt feel like it had as much resistance as my cb350 twin does. Is it cause the kick lever is longer(more leverage), 550's have lower compression, or that the engine is just tired (claims 11500miles)
