It looks like you have spent months polishing off all the surface rust and shining up the alloy tarnish. Is the base gasket leaking on the barrel, like it looks in the photo? Are the marks on the front rim from tire levers?
Apart from shining it up for sale, have you done any motor work or changed any fluids?
Quote: "( sorry it's not a hacked up 750 but it's perfect as it is) ". It's a bit of a strange comment on a blog site with plenty of "hacked up bikes" that the riders consider perfect.

It's really nice. The red paint sucks as does the missing baffles, but the bike is really nice otherwise.

Sorry this bike didn't have surface rust it's a garage kept Florida bike, that was incredibly well kept.
The base Gasket and the head gasket are 100% leak free.
There are 3 or 4 marks on the front wheel from a tire iron, the PO had the tire put on at the dealer, so I'm quite surprised that that happened.
The bike didn't take to much to shine up, mainly just waxed to preserve it, unbelievable but it is has been incredibly looked after for all these years.
It's had a complete 10,000 mile service done in the past 3 months ( 400 miles)
including new oil and filters, flushed brake line, new points and condensers, shock oil, adjusted valves and timing chain, all cables lubed and adjusted,
carbs rebuilt and synced. Compression across the cylinders is between 160-165psi so I feel there is no need for any additional mechanical work to a perfectly running motor.
Don't get me wrong I love a nice well done cafe racer, but there are quite a bit of people that I wouldn't trust to change my oil that are hacking up perfectly good bikes, because they like the way a Cafe bike looked on Pintrest.

If you were actually a potential buyer I would be more than happy to pass the previous owners' information on to you so you can talk to them personally, but I don't want to have random people bothering him or his brother ( combined they have owned the bike for 35 years) because they spotted an internet ad. I 'm sure you could understand.
Everyone's a potential buyer. That's what you call people who look at ads.
