The price has now been reduced dramatically and the words 'all original' have been removed from the advert ......what a shame he is going to earn 2k less for it 🙄🙄🙄🙄
Good thing a unsuspecting buyer didn't jump in feet first.....

so engine number 3646 .. must have just missed the early crankcase style but obviously not the original engine cases for that VIN,

Frame no. CB500-1000194 so very early indeed ... shame it doesn't have its original crankcases.

Nice low number, if you are into that sort if thing. I'm sure Bryans VIN #36 is still the champion though🏆
