    I just checked this bike out as it is literally 2 blocks from my work.
    There is not much to be excited about, it is just too far gone for any reasonable restoration.
    I already have a rust free RJ tank but it needs a dent repaired. The tank on this one is showing serious rust and would need more work than the one I have now.
    I made a deal to swap his valve cover for a Turbo valve cover.
    I hope it fits, sure looks tidier than that YICS 3-stripes thing.

    The seller said the fact it has a registration is why he values it as high as stated.
    The motor turns but I noticed broken upper case where the RH crank end cap bolts on.
    Also broken cooling fins.
    Might be of value to someone trying to right a messed up bobber frame.
