    This one still has original tires,grips,etc.Could pass for new.Some older campers owned it.Has anything really changed on them?

    Mine has the suction cup as well. Two 10mm bolts holding the rear, the plastic lip and suction cup in front.

    Sinkers are acceptable wheel weights, just balance right. The '87 CDI is unique to that year, so when yours goes, you might have a hard time finding a used one, and they're expensive new. Some other things about the electrical system are unique to certain years. Doing a search on the website will give you some more info.



    The more important stuff is after 2001 they change to a disc brake front, so fork lowers, handbrake, hubs are different. And the carb is a different model, meaning different cables, maybe the throttle, jets, etc. They also removed the kickstarter, but that doesn't affect you if you're looking for parts.



    Honestly the price sounds a bit high, but you talk like it's close to showroom quality. Too late now anyhow. Replace those tires if you're in any situation where you don't want a blowout or a stiff tire making you lay it down. Get the manual on this site and read about the break-in procedure. You need to follow that, since the mileage is so low. Stock chain doesn't last long when new. A stock chain that's 26 years old is probably even worse. Upside is the sprockets are still new enough to be paired with a new chain without having wear issues.



    Do your reading, use the search function of the site, and have fun. Welcome.
    Some things shouldn't be left like you found them.
