Miles are really of no concern. Unless they are very low. The bike is 750 bucks and repainted. Do you honestly think that I would not suspect the odometer? My Ol' Bessie is on her third speedometer. Not because I cared about miles but because of the ridiculous Joan Claybrook legislated 85 MPH speedometer. I now have a 140mph speedo which works and matches the tach. Now on the issue of miles. Only an honest original owner can say that this is how many miles it has had since new. This leaves me with a question. What are miles? I am a member of the hours club, miles are unimportant from my windshield. Since Ol' Bessie is having her frame stripped and inspected and powder-coated, does this not mean that it is the equivalent of new? When Northwest reskinned their ancient DC9s the airframes were zero timed, in other words, as new. The engine has new timing chain and tensioners. A new oil pump and chain. Everything else has been inspected and found to be within factory specifications. If I replace the wheel bearings with new ones, does that not qualify "as new"? Heinz 57 is a bike that I am going to ride proudly until Bessie is back from her, ahhhhh, time at the spa. If it is true that Heinz 57 is original miles then it would be prudent to look for any kind of crash damage. The bike has a clean title, it doesn't make any funny noises. Most of all it is a GL. I can't just let her go to e-bay hell. I have a running policy to fix bikes that are fixable and have or can obtain a title. Everything else is put up for auction. Unfortunately, my inventory is filling up. I have been working so much that I have not had time to even open the doors to my shed and air it out, never mind work on stuff or ebay sales. Eventually, if Heinz 57 lasts the winter she will outfitted with a trailer hitch, and I will tow a small smoker grill to BBQ competitions. After all, a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do.
