Honda GX 35 gas cap falling off due to vibration?

    I'm talking with someone from Craigslist who is selling their motor bike with a friction kit and Honda GX35 engine installed on it. They are offering to sell the bicycle, the engine, with the friction kit for $170. It's a no brainer if the engine works!

    The issue is, there's no gas cap (fell off because of vibration), and the cover of the engine fell off (apparently due to same reasons).

    Should I be worried about this? Is this common? He said for the time being that he has just put a plastic bag over the gas for now while the caps been off.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    It would seem just the friction kit and bike are worth that depending on condition. Motor is just a plus, roll of the dice. Parts motor at worst, good running motor at best. Hear it run and then make a judgement.

    I'm trying to have the people send me a better pic of the engine

    Parts probably came off because they were not properly tightened.
    If that Honda starts, you got a winner.
