Buy it in boxes or run away?

Got a local post for a 1979 P125x. Pretty much a basket case, but the optimistic side of me would love to bring some glory back to this scooter. I'll attach some pictures. Neither the seller, nor I know anything more than what's in the pictures. It came with the sale of a decrepit acreage he bought. Is this something I should pursue? If it doesn't seem realistic to make it road worthy, does it look like there are at least any usable parts? I think I could get the lot for about 200 bucks.

It depends, it will take about $1,000 to get it back on the road correctly. This is assuming that the motor needs a full rebuild, tank cleaned, new fuel tap, etc.. Plus if you do get it and decide to rebuild the motor, I strongly recommend the DR180 kit.

If not we buy scooters, $200 is a good deal
