wow....another reason not to drink in the garage

That's an excellent point, but I think in this case the advice needs to be extended beyond just drinking, if you know what I mean.

Looks like a record album jacket from the late 'sixties....

Looks like it would be a good fit for SF Gay Pride parade.

There could be a silver lining here. He will most likely have a hard time selling it for obvious reasons, after a while he will become desperate and you will be able to get it very cheap. Strip the paint off of the swingarm and silencer, take 30 minutes to bead blast the engine covers, peel off the graphics and you will have a somewhat normal looking bike for little money.

Then you'd have to ask yourself how such an individual would be about maintaining his bike.

True, and of course you would have to look it over like any bike when you go see it. However, most people who take the whole bike apart and powdercoat the frame (and other parts) will grease the bearings when they put it back together. This guy just happened to be drunk when he decided what colors to make everything. The biggest thing you would have to look out for IMO is how often he changed the oil, checked the valves, and changed the cam chain.

Well I wouldn't buy it that's for sure. I would ride it if someone gave it to me, but I would get rid of the graphics and the red!!

If a guy could get it cheap enough and put a little labour into the stripping paint. It could be a deal ???? or not....

The ad actually says it is powder coated.
Might be a little tough to get that off.
