It does look like the 2nd one, but I'll check later (its 5am now!)... and LGF, I know! Don't worry, I'll get it in me vice later and "cold set"it...

;0)

I don't like to get rid of the panto'd bits tho, as they have been on there since the guy bought it.... I'm funny like that!

Great looking machine indeed. Does it need any work apart from a small clean?

It all depends how I decide to go about it..... It has some scuffs and chips, but no dents...... It would need a respray ideally, but this is original paint patina..... I don't want to lose that :0)

Maybe when I retire in 9 years I might treat it to a full resto, but I like the slightly lived in look...... And it will be ridden!!

I know you are joking , but is it worth a bit then??
I have so much to learn about earlyish road stuff...... I know this isn't the "what's it worth thread", but ballpark ?:0)

I can't see how good it looks, but somewhere $300-400 for a nice one

In some countries you could really retire with that
