That is a mess, I read up about what the guy said and you are going to have to rewire the entire bike and that is NO fun. Just be patient and wait till you find a good deal on a running bike.

It's a '98 and I bet he'll take $2000 for it. I know he has clothing to go too and he probably wants a couple hundred dollars more for that.
