200$! The guy wanted to prove to me that it turned over with the starter and definitely smoked anything that could be smoked. but i still gave him his 200 since its mostly there and Reg/Recs on units in this condition are unlikely perfect anyways.

I'm thinking of clearcoating right over the patina. i like the scrappy look.

It looks perfect to me. If you fix it then you will need to keep it in a glass showcase and never ride it.

That bike is going to bring you a lot of joy! And what a great deal!
I would clean and maintain the bike (ok, maybe refurbish the backrest), but I would NOT mess with that tank!
I know I'm going to get nuts and bolts thrown at me, but seriously, I LOVE the tank just the way it is! The color, the character, I think it is great! I wouldn't clear coat it either, it got that way by it's own rights and took a long time to get that look. Everyone has their own taste, and I'm sure we'll find it interesting to see what you decide to do with it.
Good luck and enjoy your new endeavor!
Cool bike!
Cheers~

I really like it too. Maybe some kind of wax? I don’t want it to change much I just want to keep it aging appropriately.
