Help, I'm stumped. I can't answer this question.

If you buy a magneto fired Sporty and it doesn't come with a magneto, have you bought a magneto fired sporty?

And a 1970 didn't come with a magneto.

And wouldn't a mag interfere with the VIN boss shown here? Shouldn't a 70 have the VIN between the front cyl tappets? It's a dry clutch 900 but is the right case from a 71? Do we really know for sure what this is?

But wait, I guess it is a mag bike, there's no battery.

That is half a bike with no title, don't count on it being register able.
I might pay half what he is asking, if i needed the parts.
That bike is so rough it's not really a start.

I can’t help but look at all the oddballs and orphans... drawn like a moth to a flame.

Not an original magneto motor (converted) Not a 74 front end
Frame appears to be raked, needs raked trees to ride decent.
I'd have to remove the bondo to check that the rake job is kosher and check that it is straight.
Kinda pricey for a bike that does not run.
