Hello Harit,

Since all I have to view are the photos posted coupled with the fact that I was not around, could you shed some light on the details that you mentioned, namely,

a. Wrong descriptions,
b. Modifications,
c. Wrong year of manufacture etc.

Maybe, it's got a lot to do with owners wanting to go one up on the next aka - mine is older than that.

Originality is one thing, changes made with period modifications/ accessories are quite another.

Restoration is one thing, genuine patina is quite another.

Then there is always a world of 'trailer queens', is this class prevelant in India now?

Would definitely love to see one car/ bike with original English/ American or European air in the tyres, nothing molested, nothing changed - now that would be a true 'original'.

Waiting for the set of photos that you have, don't worry about repetitions, it would be eye candy for a guy like me.

Take care and stay well.

Reg,

BB

Old post, I was away. Here are the pics.
The stuff mentioned in italics also applies to dealers, why they do that I just cannot imagine

Enjoy the pics

Hello HArit,

Thanks a ton for humoring my request.

The photos make the day enjoyable.

Dealers, hmmmm, an eye on profits - makes interesting descriptions.

Take care and stay well.
