Gumtree: In the spirit of Guys post "Looks Good" a couple of weeks ago I offer up "Looks Good II"

Out of a shed in Narrogin and into the light is a tasty tasty morsel. Having spent another $600 this week on my RS's charging/ignition system I'm in little doubt I'd go from married to single if I tried to buy this one. Paints obviously not original, grab rails missing, but it actually looks quite original.I'd say its spent a lot of the last 45 years being enjoyed and a lot in a shed under a sheet. Handlebars aren't original, Fiamm horns been chucked otherwise quite unmolested.
I offer this bike up to a real enthusiast for restoration and enjoyment rather than risk it falling into the dastardly grasp of narcissistic cafe racer "Vandals" (no apology's tendered)
I'd go have a look at it myself but I must stay true to "Old Greg" the sassy RS and restore him to his former glory

This is a great find, a 75/6 with classic tank (later had newer tank) a sexy machine, that type green did come out on some old BM models, (I like it) this machine belongs in the club, its only down the road, club rego cost little, a great second machine, & a top little project...... Go grab it someone.

You might get it for $3.5K .
I knew you'd see the potential Guy, this is up your alley. Probably a bit rough but hey look at the price.

Heres what I see.
