You have to admit there are some special and shocking deals out there .Inevitably these listings will expire over time but one can wonder at the same time.Feel free to add and comment accordingly.

Is the timing cover different on this model compared to other '75's?

NY yellow bike is not a bad deal, the other yellow one won't be selling at that price without reliable race prominence.

The e-bay bike is hard to tell, but i think the starter has been removed and blocked off.

Take a quick trip out of the US and sell a kidney or half your liver.

The better question is "did all yellow race replicas have kill buttons?"

Looks like a stock '75 MK3 timing cover to me. Mine is just like it.
