1957 Sportsters have bushings in the case instead of needle bearings. I believe they went to the needle bearings in 58.

Not really pricy considering it is near original as long as it doesn't leak or need pistons.
Pretty sure the exhaust is not stock might be bargaining leverage...
I think the stock exhaust had a crossover and slip on mufflers and a larger rear muffler support.
