Not trying to be funny or sound stupid or anything, just curious
not curious in buying or anything, just curious of the life span of the G/S
then again , maybe its the age, not the miles
It really looks to me more than 120,000 or the Speedo/odo was discoed. That would explain it. People try stuff like this all the time. My brother went to look at an off road machine that had less than 10 K on it. I noticed the underside was half worn away with scrapping. It's why the advice to check the records is repeated so much.
