I have no substance to add, but go for it anyway. Looks like it it's all there.

Kick starter looks suspicious....perhaps it's return spring has failed.

Iím guessing parts availability (mechanical stuff) is going to be tricky and if you do get it going it looks like a very small engine so donít expect to be burning up the road.

Get it. I had a Harley (Aermacchi) Sprint of that era; right side shift, left side kickstarter and rear brake pedal. Looks like yours might be missing the brake linkage. It's nice enough that someone will probably buy it from you. If you do nothing more than bring it home and clean it up you should not lose money on it. All bets are off once you start buying stuff for it. Good luck!

I would beware of parts availability and signs that was taken apart previously if it currently does not run. Other people's projects are never enjoyable unless you are knowledgeable with the specific item in question since you never know what's goes where or if anything is missing, if they put it back together right or what the original issue was.

I’m going to go look at it, but I’m not sure I’m going to get it. The kick start spindle is broke and just not sure how hard it will be to fix it. I don’t think I’m that guy. I do have a friend that restores vintage British bikes and I’ll talk to him about it.
