If you are mechanically inclined, you will have a blast. I have a 85 S&S which I purchased 12 years with ago. It had been setting in a garage for 5 years with a rod sticking out the side of the block. Kids put the boat in the water in spring without checking oil. Dad told the kids that if they wanted to use the boat they could fix it. After 5 years I purchased it and put a Jasper rebuild in it myself. After replacing water pump impeller, carburetor and installing electronic ignition it ran great. The impeller and carburetor I attribute to lack of use. I have since replaced the steering rack and cable some of the hoses, bilge pump and have replaced impeller every 3 years and general maintenance. If you have any questions just ask. Someone will respond!
