    I found it via UK eBay, so shipping cost will be to uk. This is a generic version of the valeo, I have one like it fitted to my 1070 bike, has worked well for the last 3 years or so.

    No problems with them - I bought one from Caltric on Ebay 3 years ago when they were $99- and it has performed perfectly for 75,000 km.

    EME has them for a similar price, with a 12 month warranty you can trust, but you probably wont need it.

    I think it's a British machine. The throttle cable looks like the ones sold by MotoBins. You know how ass backwards the Brits can be?

    Carbs are fine, bike is upside-in.

    I've actually made a couple inquiries of that seller, don't know where he gets all his "garage finds" but they do seem to have those same...oddities.

    Brockton,

    That a really nice bike, it ain't a 72........judging by its condition I would guess that the mileage is honest too.

    The Buy It Now is $5500, so that would be my guess for the reserve. Or at least close to that.

    He just committed a major faux pas with that tank. Those roadster tanks had a run of improper welding and they leaked up at the front mount as his description has said.
    The problem is, those tanks were all warranteed by BMW, and the tanks were supposed to be destroyed and not resold. WHOOPS!
    The dealer he got that from (if he did get it one from one) now has his ass hanging in the wind for BMW to notice . Course that was 18 years ago, but.....................you don't ever want to get auditted by BMW. EVER. it sucks worse than an IRS audit, trust me.
    Nice goin' Duncans Beemers!:lol3

    you guys have no sense of adventure - just think how easy it would be to adjust the carb cables. Plus what an adventure if your pant leg get caught up in the linkage WOW that would be fun!!!!!:freaky
