Looks pretty damn original.  Tires have a date code on them.  Maybe message to see what it is.  That will say a lot. I have a mint 78 CB750f in my garage that's a very similar situation with factory tires and all the factory markings.  They painted all the bolts with yellow paint on the assembly line after they were torqued and checked.  Had I not experienced it with the 750, I may not otherwise believe it to be truthful.

It is, and still 2800 mile 1974 CB350 four still has the original tires (dry rotting, but holding air)  and all the marks of torque and/or verification of assembly.

I am a quality inspector at a local Deere assembly plant and we still use the marking system for torques and assembly verification.
