why? would think these little engines should run forever

i can't afford to be selective so whatever 200-400cc street legal that pops up locally 
saw some nice vintage but most are 2 stroke and my spine needs suspension but they sure look cool

The previous owner ran it very low on oil which starved the camshafts and stretched the timing chain until it broke. It is all good now. The best part is they are very easy to rebuild and the parts are cheap.
