I think it's a British machine. The throttle cable looks like the ones sold by MotoBins. You know how ass backwards the Brits can be?

Carbs are fine, bike is upside-in.

I've actually made a couple inquiries of that seller, don't know where he gets all his "garage finds" but they do seem to have those same...oddities.

Brockton,

That a really nice bike, it ain't a 72........judging by its condition I would guess that the mileage is honest too.

The Buy It Now is $5500, so that would be my guess for the reserve. Or at least close to that.

That seller, Duncan's Beemer Shop, consistently wants top dollar + 50% for everything they sell. They relisted a R100GS tank on ebay for $600 for years until some sucker bought it.

EDIT: Oh woops, here it is again:

He just committed a major faux pas with that tank. Those roadster tanks had a run of improper welding and they leaked up at the front mount as his description has said.
The problem is, those tanks were all warranteed by BMW, and the tanks were supposed to be destroyed and not resold. WHOOPS!
The dealer he got that from (if he did get it one from one) now has his ass hanging in the wind for BMW to notice . Course that was 18 years ago, but.....................you don't ever want to get auditted by BMW. EVER. it sucks worse than an IRS audit, trust me.
Nice goin' Duncans Beemers!

you guys have no sense of adventure - just think how easy it would be to adjust the carb cables. Plus what an adventure if your pant leg get caught up in the linkage WOW that would be fun!!!!!
