It's hard to beat the simplicity and functionality of a DR200.
And they havent changed much if at all. I think $1800 would be fair if its in really good shape and running smooth.

I would do the carb before anything else, and that involves cutting a hole in the air box as well. I did that to mine and it made the biggest difference to drive ability.
