Note: This is a Pre Owned Lux Low Restoration. The Bike has been Ridden, not abused and the bike is in Top Mechanical Shape. The Paint has some minor blemishes: minor chips in top tube, denting & chipped in the take gill from springer (common old and new), minor scratches bottom tube under the front of the tank from being on a rack. A few random scraches I am pretty sure I can buff out when I Dissassemble the bike. The Seat leather has some slight discoloration. These Descriptions come from the one that restored the bike, who has handled the bike in every way and has the most scrutinized eye. The wear is not what catches a common persons eye and these blems would receive no mention is it was original paint. Now the Chrome is in Excellent Shape and came from a time when I had better chromers. The Wheels set is a Beauty in it self, So Much that I would like to keep them. If your interested in this bike at a lower price I would Consider trading the wheels out for Restored Painted S-2 Wheels (Beautiful Also) The Pictures were taken when the bike was restored, and the Bike Looks that good today, only with blems described above. What You have is a Gorgeous, Used, Restoration, that you would feel Comfortable riding Daily and You Be the envy of Everybody on Your Block.
