I don't want to buy it but many years ago I sold my 1974 Vespa Rally 200 for $600. It had 171,000 miles on it. Sold an 81 CX500 with 102,000 miles about 10 years ago for $900.

I bought a HF 1/2" air impact wrench several years ago which is totally worthless. No way will it remove a lug nut on my little car. Just need a 250 psi compressor? Should have returned it.
