Thanks guys- I'm supposed to be getting some better pics this weekend, I'll post em. I don't think the seller is very knowledgeable but I'll ask if she has any history on it. They are asking 750$ which I think is high considering the whole rear countershaft section is missing and there's essentially no tooling, no side covers and who knows how much wear it has.
There are much better ones on the east coast , some in the same price range. All apart in my opinion it's not worth that much. I'd offer half and not go over $450.00. But I'm always willing to wait for the one that says HEY I'm worth it. With out all the parts and extra tooling just no value , to me anyway.
Apparently someone bought it, I never did get any more pix. Oh well. I thought the gearbox looked different than yours Will? I saw the broken lever. But yes the headstock looked the same as yours
