Hit and miss!
Can be great when properly sorted out: a nightmare when not.

I wouldn't pay much more than $2,500 for a running and titled one.

Check out Dneprheads.com for more.

What he said ^

If I remember correctly it was the 2wd MT-16 model you were looking at?

It would probably be a fun bike for you until you wanted to go faster. Maybe I am wrong but I felt that the 2wd setup on the one I had robbed the bike of top end speed as compared to a Dnepr outfit without the 2wd.

Below is a picture of the one I used to have.

You did ask me about it while we were there.
