    just make sure it starts easily from cold as they can suffer from low compression if they have had a hard life.

    Known issues:
    the speedo cable falls off the back of the speedo
    slide holders in the carbs can drop a slide, you will know when it happens
    The fuel tape release solenoid can fail

    Apart from that, they are a fun bike. Bit heavy, but still fun

    It runs, he sent me a video it's not exactly smooth. Probably needs a clean and balance. I should do a compression test before I purchase.

    Sounds ok, I have just this minute finished stripping an Across down so if you need any parts contact @kiffsta.
    The Across is a great bike, as mentioned a little heavy but fun to ride.
    They have a smaller fuel tank...12L
    Plenty of info here on the forum.
    Good luck with your purchase.
