It should run. The only real issue is lubrication - not such a big deal for the two-strokes (our oil is very thin and in our gas anyway), but it's hard for a weak starter to crank against maple syrup oil, and oil gets very thick in cold weather.
Once it's running it'll warm up and run pretty much like it does on any day - a bit leaner, assuming it's carburetted, but as long as the engine isn't racing, just take it easy and it'll be fine. Give the oil a good while to warm up before you push it though - you want to make sure the oil is flowing well before you do anything that'll get parts too hot.
And really, those of us who ride in this crap can say there's nothing heroic about riding in it - but it *is* fun, until you lose feeling in your fingers.
