    I thought this one would be of interest, extremely clean and looks like low miles could actually be true. No beating marks on primary inspection covers, etc. That paint with the nice single pinstripe didn't show up in the brochures until 1972, but the front brake and engine breather mark it as a 1971 as described. This could be a very nice rider for someone. Add an oil filter, new tires and go!

    Thanks, I didn't know that. I want to add that single stripe to mine but went with vinyl logos and haven't found a good paint color match for the stripes.
    I wondered about the chain guard since my '72 has the older style that 'curls down' at the back. It's clear the 'straight through' design was introduced in 1971. Mine may have been a case of the factory using up old parts or maybe it got changed somewhere along the way.

    Not important but speedo and tacho are transposed.
