You know, I'd almost pay $4000 for the Norton.  Compared to the other intergalactic prices on some of the bikes you see on CL.

Is the gray frame original?  Seems like black would be the original color.  Again, like the Norton, a fair price, if it's not a scammer.  I don't trust any listings that don't have a phone number.  17 days on CL and no takers, sounds fishy.

Oh my.  A first gen OIF with gray frame... 

I thought that by 74 they had changed to black frames, but I could be wrong.

At the current bid price, if that is a real H1R, then someone is getting a steal I think.

That said, the plumbing strap holding the exhaust is questionable.

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.
