Default 70's scat cat minibike

Man I would love to pick this up. I really like the style and the spoked wheels and chrome fenders. I could restore this one pretty easy.




http://portland.craigslist.org/clc/mcy/2249712458.html

70'S SCAT CAT MINIBIKE , 10' Chrome wheels, Rear brake, fold down handle bars, Front suspension, Rear seat shocks, the original 3.5 HP Tecumseh engine is not running but included. A few years ago I put a very low hour 5HP Briggs on the frame but never finished hooking up the throttle. It has been in dry storage for the past few years; as you can see from the accumulated dust! I would like to finish this project but have many others that are of higher priority. I may have a seat cover. A friend said he would give me $50 fro the 5HP Briggs engine so you can have it for $200 with out the Briggs. This bike is more complete then any other core bike I have come across. I restored bike can sell up wards of $1000.

Thanks
