The last tab on the vintage WA plate was in 1984, so it's been a local for quite a few years; the sellers story is probably believable . Looks like it got the ride home from grandpa's house in the back of a vintage pickup. The oil drips under the bike a little concerning, but hey, I guess it is British. I do dig that space age hold over tail light.
