    Very nice looking bike and build for $200. I think you got a great score there.

    If you are asking for starting tips, among the basic, I would just give it a lot of extra prolong speed before releasing the clutch or engaging the engine. This would really help it suck in gas vapors. Normally, you probably don't have to do so peddling to get it started.

    Oke, my English was horrendous in the previous post. I meant to say for your first start and maybe a few after you should really get a lot of speed (15mph+), release the clutch, and then maintain a lot of speed. Normally, you will not need a lot of speed to get it started but since this is a cold start in years... The extra speed will help suck in a lot of gas vapors for your first start.
