    Hey guys, I see a '73 Eldorado for sale on craigslist that says the bike does not run, owner says "not running, suspecting oil pump".

    What do you guys think? If I were to purchase it, am in potentially buying a big problem?

    Thanks, any input welcome!

    Yes, could be big problems. Oil pump failure could mean the engine is trashed. The bike could be a good parts donor.

    Agreed. Sounds like a potential money pit. Unless it's dirt cheap and you like a challenge.
