The restoration was a major wallet emptying experience, coming from Very Hot Dry Long Term Storage in the states- Mice had eaten into air filter to a nest in air box, Original dated tyres Flat Hard Dry Split, all reservoirs dry, cotton buds in silencers! & so it went on to indicate Mileage is more likely than not GENUINE.
Good News really as the O/A Condition'realistically' agrees with mileage. Original Discs are Virtually Untouched, as per Exhaust Headers with sound & good Chrome, as per the Collector Box just. Slight surface rust No Corrosion, Original Silencers Undamaged & Rocker Covers retain original Unblemished Lacquer.

Nly put new alternator in so as not to have to put joints in when eliminating the coupler that cause burn-out issues.
