This guy said this machine was restored a few years ago, anyone know what he is talking about?

I'm guessing he may have uploaded the wrong pictures as last time I checked a restored machine does not have a Boat seat, ugly looking stack , non original engine and a spray bomb paint job over the original paint!

I run into that all the time in Western Ma also. Falls under the category 'shiny sells, ran when parked'. The stack need to go.

  to each his own,   someone was probably very proud of that when they got it done a few years ago.  not worth the $850.

Now there was no sense in flagging that other then meanness ! So he don't know what he is talking about neither do most that post on Craigslist. Let's leave the flagging for when it is really appropriate,shall we ? This coming from someone who has been flagged many times by people just to irritate me. Let's try to look at things maturely.

that was my thought too. Just shows that restored doesn't mean the same to everybody. I didn't see anything there that was inappropriate either.
