    no , unless its less than 500 , and still has good steel

    i have rebuilt a few... you would be surprised how quikly the dollars add up. motor 400 , new clutch 200, electronic throthlttle 100, bearings 120 , new battery with cables 100... it gets old really quick, If it jsut needs a part here and there , i would , but a motor and clutch and the chute.... ur gonna be in the 1200 parts rage., plus time ,
