    picked it up for free, made it run for the price of carb parts, fuel line, spark plugs, carb cleaner, and a throttle cable.

    Yeah, I had the same one. Bought it brandnew in 1989. Much nicer than the 87-later models. IMHO the bet looking Enduro ever. Unfortunately id didn´t last very long. Enginge and Transmission weak after 1 Year. Sold it and bought KTM.

    punctuation is important.

    this is how I read it:

    Engine and Transmission weak. After 1 Year, sold it
