This Dakota V is one of the older style machines, it runs great but not as quiet as the newer models. One guard has the mold lines on the backside filled in with Bondo. Most likely this was done to keep bear fat from building up in the small holes. Very little surface rust. The welds on the hood are cracked on both sides at the hinge area( looks like someone applied to much pressure on the hood while it was in the open position). Hood is still very much functional. All of this is shown in the photos.
