Anyway. I have to keys to them and no idea on their mechanical state.
The 750 has a kickstart and electric, and the engine turns over. The other bike only has electric start so I can't even check if the engine is free.
I would like to know how easy or hard are these bikes to work on. Are the parts expensive if they need to be fixed?
I guess I just need to a way to find out if they are worth fixing, or if I should try to sell them as they sit?!
For the 250, you could run jumper cables to the battery connections to see if it will turn over.
(seems like a genius like you could have figured that one out)
I mean, I'm just a worthless teacher.
