    owner wants $150.

    says it runs and works great. just might need a new battery.

    saw it was leaking some oil.

    could i flip this in a few months for $300-400?

    I wouldnt foll with it, battery etc. 50$ so youll have 200$ and hop you can sell it to make a 100$, If the engine is bad you have scrap.

    I'd ditch the mower deck, throw an 800cc Rotex engine on it, Ron Woods exhaust, tires and kick some redneck butt at the track.

    I think its worth the gamble.

    Ill tell him $125 with the gas can and new propane tank laying next to it.

    Battery still had charge, maybe it just needs a good charge.

    Should be able to get $400 out of it come summer.
