A very nice looking bike, but

A very nice looking bike, but not the "original" survivor condition indicated in the description. A few quick observations of non-original items:
Aftermarket shocks
Ride-off centerstand.
New style petcocks
VDO clock
Aftermarket hand grips
Windshield screws instead of rivets
Dyna electronic ignition? (red/brown/white wires below gas tank)

Nothing major, just a few nitpicks. I wouldn't mind owning it.

You forgot to mention the 'correct' pinstripe tape with square ends!

SOLD

It sold for $8,625 and that includes the buyer premium. I think that was a very good buy.

What do you guys think of this one?

I'm brand new to riding motorcycles. I am learning as much as I can about the BMW airheads. Just love the design. A local shop has an R90s for sale. Would appreciate your opinions. Thanks in advance

The Bonham's bike looks nice,

The Bonham's bike looks nice, but its paint looks like a black/silver fade, rather than a correct Silver Smoke, which is really a very dark brownish-green. That would be an expensive fix, so the significant "discount" on the sale price is appropriate. The painted valve covers and front engine cover should be stripped, as well.
