I picked up this beauty in 2017. It was a runner but just barely. All the bulbs were blown. I got the electrical sorted and cut out any sketchy parts of the harness. It just needed proper maintenance to run right. Valves adjusted, timing fine tuned and dialed in the carb and it has been a good rider. Surprisingly starts first or second kick.
