Okay, I have to have one bike, I'd like to get ahold of something a little more dirt friendly. This thing would be fun to pretty up and tour with, but I can't do either of those things too well right now.

Thread about it here. Made in December of 1972, matching numbers, LWB. Haven't checked the tank to see if it's got the MC recess but it's got the adhesive type roundels. Located in Cookeville, TN.

56k miles
Avonaire fairing
Wixom luggage
Runs nicely, shifts typical
at least 90% tread left on tires (Bridgestones I think?)
Brakes well
Rides smooth
Pretty great candidate for a refresh

Not as good:
needs a pushrod seal
A /6 seat, or at least the cover
One bent seat hinge
No seat lock
Signals are from a UJM
passing light doesn't seem to work
Black plate Bings
Right side muffler rusted out at the bottom of the tip
Denting in top of tank from barbacks
some surface rust on things
Needs fork oil

Not 100% about typical prices but I'm going to ask $2500 for now. I'd like to see it go to someone who can love it and appreciate it, so I may not put this in the big FM. I'm very open to trades for a decent DS bike, something not too big.

EDIT: It's, uh, a R75/5 by the way. Could deliver within +/- 100 miles.
Some things shouldn't be left like you found them.
