    Pick up this cute little generator today,
    Runs and puts out voltage!
    I'm going to tune it up and change the oil.
    Should make a good back up power source.

    And it's probably better equipment than they're putting out today.

    The only thing that would concern me with that machine is parts availability. I'll go ahead and say they'll be scarce as hen's teeth, but I sure hope not.

    Very nice score! I have a Honda 1400 watter vintage early 1990s my brother fished out of someone's garbage and passed along to me. I put about $150 into it for a new carb, gaskets, spark plug, pull cord spring. It runs great and is very reliable.

    To address @Merkun concerns about parts, this should be of help:

    Plano Power Equipment Online Store - Honda Generator Common Parts

    I bought all the stuff for my Honda there. They are good to do business with.

    Good luck...great item!

    I'm actually thinking of getting my own generator to use for a trailer but I'm thinking if it would fit my cargo and Roll N Lock tonneau cover that I use for my Frontier.
