Low miles. Owned since 1995, bought from (now closed) British Marketing in Laguna Niguel, CA. Barely ridden since, less than 500mi. Recently added Mikuni carburetor (still have Amal's), new chain, plugs, oil and tires, recent service by Moto Classic Garage in LA. I'm just not riding it so I'd love to see it go to someone who will! Send me a message for photos and to make an offer, looking for ~$5,000.

Given the apparent explosion in scammer activity on various for-sale forums (see for example Jim Gold's note on the ad for a 75 Commando just below in these classified listings), it would be wise to find ways to provide clearer evidence that the listed item actually exists and is in possession of the seller. Another forum I spend some time on has gone to requiring that a photo be posted of the item for sale in combination with a written note indicating the date of the photo and a visible date on a printed newspaper front page (I know -- good luck finding a printed daily newspaper in today's world!). While nothing is completely fool-proof, those steps or something similar would perhaps increase confidence in the validity of some sales ads.

The last 150 or so motorcycles I've owned, all had extensive photo documentation on multiple online forums, with the bikes taken in my recognizable shop or driveway, beside our pond, or other obviously unique setting.

Good for me, NOT good for people who were scammed by copies of MY photos, used without my permission, to depict non-existent bikes.

Happened at least TWICE that i know of, but probably more times I don't know about. Such is this deteriorating world...

There is nothing new about scammers. It is the world's third oldest profession.

As many among the world's first oldest profession (prostitution) became pregnant, Motherhood is now widely regarded as the world's second oldest profession (stolen and paraphrased from Erma Bombeck).
