I know if an older bike sits for an extended period of time the carbs and fuel lines can gum up. Is there anything that can happen to the engine though? The bike i'm interested in buying has been in inside storage for about a year. any help would be great. thanks

Acid in the oils can do damage as well as coolant. Valve springs can loss some of there spring rate. Water condendsation can rust gas tanks, if steel. And the clutch can dry out and "lock" together until some oil is flung on it. If you pick it up make sure and do a complete fluid change and flush the engine coolant. Good luck.
