He also wasn't aware that the seat was NOT a Denfeld, or that the front fender had been chopped.
He is going to fix the listing, and keep it running. The price is very fair for what it is and he's actually a pretty nice guy.He was very appreciative of the info.
Not every one is an ass-hat.
I'm also a little mellower today than normal, my Dad passed away Friday morning.

I wouldn't know a thing about most of the old bikes.

Sorry to hear about your Dad.

My sincerest condolences.... Honestly!

I figured Dyslexia was on the one digit... but you never can tell. I emailed the guy and didn't get a response and that was why I posted it.

How about a 1974 R90 /6 listed with only 5,933 miles that is sporting the wrong speedo for the year?

Its amazing to me the current bid on the bike is $3,350. and it clearly needs some work getting going again.

Of course...they're black not grey.
