Me too, but you never know - there wasn't exactly good record keeping back then. Even the prototype is much different from the production models. Remember it's a looks only bike - Dick O'Brien didn't give Willie access to the race department when he was building the prototype so he built the frame from sight - the geometry is all off and they don't handle nearly as well as they look.I've never heard of an orange XLCR from the factory. I thought they were all black.
He also wants to be married to Amber Heard, but neither of those will happen. Bikes like his are worth $20k-$30K at best unless it has provenance with a winning named rider, which I doubt it has.Check this out, 1975 XR750 in marginal but complete condition and the guy only wants 50,000$ canadian for it
I get that, I want an 81' Sporty for the same reason lolI've always kinda sorta wanted a 1962 Sportster, for no other reason than it's the year I was born. Looked at a first year Sportster a few years ago but it was in boxes and too far gone (some of the aluminum had been chromed, etc).
I've never even taken the time to try to find one so not all that serious, but if one came up with the right price at the right time I'd be tempted.
I agree, it's just not an original survivor. The tank is getting extremely rare. Don't know whatever happened to mine. I bet it's sitting right next to my old fairing.It has plenty of survivor parts, or at least year and model specific correct parts on it, they just don't happen to be the front end or any of the other stuff I listed.
