    It's nearby. I'll go fetch it for you.

    Actually, I know where those pictures were taken (Ann Arbor, not Ypsilanti). My wedding photos were taken in the same spot.

    Interesting although it looks like he didn't do much to the engine and from the sales text:

    sounds like it might need crank seals...

    His asking price might be a bit high versus what a nice stock '71 would bring but maybe not by too much given what an alloy tank goes for these days:

    If he'd put some time into cleaning and polishing the rest of the bike he probably would have already sold it...
