    He had to rebuild the carb on it -- He said it was a real bitch to get it tuned right -- -- He have to hand crank the engine, it would start, he'd run around to start adjusting the carb and by the time he'd get there it would die. He said it was worse than going to a Zumba class LOL. He finally ended up waiting until somebody stopped by to help him .... LMAO
