    Went with number 1. Great shape! Wish it was the bigger engine, though.
    For my first Walker, I can't complain.

    Look at the hydro oil it probably needs to be changed . Get the grease gun out and go for it .

    Walkers seem to be really popular in that area. I have only seen a few in my life and I've traveled a lot.
