I had bought the plastics kit for this one. It originally had the yellow plastic and it really looked like crap. the seat was torn, it was weather beaten pretty badly too. I also had trouble starting this thing ever since I bought it. Turns out it was low compression. I bought an new top end and when I took off the old one, noticed that one of the previous owners had broken a piston ring, gouging the cylinder walls pretty deep. After the top end went on, it started on the second kick and has been running perfect ever since.
