    I don't have the money for yet another project, but it looks like it doesn't need much and looks like a pretty good rider as is. Non stock paint but that is easy. Stock pipes and everything. Might be a deal if you can talk him out of the tree he is in on the price...he wants almost 3 grand. If interested to see it I can post the ad. Looks like he is up in the four corners area....NW Colorado.

    Here it is

    Word of caution... Besides the nosebleed price, the early pre-74 production had oil volume/ 4th and 5th gear failure issues. This is the original service bullertin. Look down the list at "T-3"

    This example may be in the neighborhood milage-wise. I had one that I tried to breath life back into, but it was going to cost more that it would have been worth.

    Also, if it's a smoker, som of the crankseals are no longer available.

    Just a cautionary word...

    i'm not at all interested in it. So no worry about me buying it. I know when ever someone posts a pc of one here, people all say they want one so figured I post it up. The guy is totally high (as in smoking pot) on the price for sure for something in this shape with this mileage and I I weren't a nice guy, I would draft up an email letting him know about it.
