I'm going to end up with this by the end of the week.
He's got a new rear hatch for it so that's not a problem, and I'm trading my bike and some cash for the whole pile.
I'm pretty stoked. I've driven it around, it sounds decent, and minus some outside cosmetic stuff (rust on the corners and on a spot by the end of the trim) it's pretty slick.
Dude selling it is pretty kick ass as well. Hell he even lives in my city which he says is a big plus if I want to buy it so he can still see it putzing around.
