Dang, you're right about that one! From what I can sort of see though, that's a nice looking Frenchie right there. Good price too... :bike:
The guy who has the '75 lowered his price to $5200...he's a used car salesman, so....maybe wants to sell quickly. They like to move inventory. :rolleyes:
 
I forgot what the fix is for the growling noise. As I recall, it's a big enough issue to reduce this to a $400 bike.
I test rode a 72 XS-2 that sounded exactly like that many, many years ago when I was actively pursuing one for my collection.

I had never heard one do that before (or since) and it was a hard pass for me.
