    Ad reads...." True mileage is unknown, odometer reads 25000, but likely higher than that.
    New wheels and spokes, wheel bearings, new tires, new battery, new switch gear, new steering head taper rollers, rocker oil delivery improvement, buffalo fairing shell and brackets. Bike starts and runs well. Shifting is quite balky, trans may need shimming or shift selector adjustment. Valves and guides and clutch renewed within last 2000km. Have manuals and guides for the bike, and a few spare parts"
    I have a couple of modern Guzzis and I'm thinking this may be a decent way to get something different and fun to ride.

    hahaha I've been eyeing this up too!
    I think the price is too high. but then again, there aren't exactly many of these running around Western Canada, right?
    I do want it, very much, but that's V7 money...

    Then go for it. It looks in really good shape. Let me know if you make an offer

    I had that bookmarked too. Not going to buy it, but if anyone here does... I’d definitely meet up on a Sunday morning in Mission to get a close-up view of this rare bird!

    ...plus, Penticton is a nice place to visit in May!

    [Edit]

    Oh, shit... it’s in Grand Forks.

    The best path there is through WA, which isn’t allowed yet. That could easily become a long-weekend retrieval.

    I'm at least two months out from being able to ride a motorbike or even drive a car due to an injury, so I'm at least that long away from making any vehicle purchase decisions...

    and I still think it's a bit too much money. but then, it's hard to say what the market value really is for a bike like that here.
