Promised myself I wouldn't waste the forum's time with stuff like this, but I couldn't resist. Almost put it in the Jokes and Funnies section. Seller seems earnest. Maybe just doesn't have a clue.

Actually it is even rarer than he explained...There we zero made in 67 with that front end, not less than the 200 stated.

All in all, it can be saved...but would be costly...

Technically 0 is "less than 200" so I guess hes spot on!

How the hell do you read that speedo if you're not standing in front of the bike, looking down at it?

Interesting rear shocks... never seen that type before. Very skinny.

they are a type of solid strut... I've seen them discussed here before... Not quite a shock, not quite a solid strut. Weird....

I emailed her, she is selling for a "friend" and is sticking to her story. I suggested the woman at HD dealer should be fired. Said the HD dealer "had a picture". Wow.
