When I see pics of old bikes that look that nice, if I'm interested, the first question is, when were the pictures taken?
Although it's possible, I find it difficult to believe that vintage bike could look that good after all those years in Florida!!!!! Especially reds, which were/are prone to sun fade.
Would be worth a look at the actual bike to see. for sure.

With those few miles my guess is it got more polishing time in the garage than riding time on the road. But hey its craigslist could be total scam.

The map location says just west of Pensacola in AL. and his signature says USN retired. If anyone interested its only 30 minutes from my house, I could go verify its for real and take pic's for anyone that's serious about it.
