Agreed. Makes me wonder what is lurking inside.

I bought this one instead for half that. Perhaps I’ll grab the ‘75 it if it’s still available in a week or so.

It is.
I spent a hour on it this eve, ran the valves, fixed a petcock leak, adj clutch and put a battery in it. Looked in the spark plug holes and confirmed new pistons. Put the plugs back in, put some gas and hit the button. Purred like a kitten.
Too bad it has those goofy bars and that silly tank. At least it distracts me from the pipes.
I’m not even letting this one in the garage, it has to go…soon.
