This is a great barn find. If interested this could be purchased for a little over eleven grand.

Was it hermetically sealed while in the barn? Hard to imagine a bike that looks like that sitting in a barn for very long

I was going to say, it looks like they drove it into a huge Zip Lock baggie and sealed it up.

Probably stored on a cement floor polebarn/garage. I wouldn't think it was stored in something with a dirt floor with that little corrosion. Its a beautiful bike, its going into a collection for sure. Id love to own it, but its too impractical for me. With the mileage on this its suited more for a museum piece or something to be trailed out to vintage bike shows.

Heres one at a dealer in iowa - he is asking almost 17k for it.
