Thanks for the feedback David. Unfortunately I donít have a lot more than that to work with as I am going to pay cash. I am looking at a CHB locally, but as you say needs electronics and exterior cosmetics. Probably has some rot as well Iím sure Iíll find when I get digging around. I should be able to get it for 25g Canadian. Has new fuel tanks and seems mechanically sound. I guess Iím just getting a feel for whats available online my price range. Gotta start somewhere
