    1. Don't know if the bike is original or restored, but I heard that black chrome is difficult to get right.

    2. this bike might be original, detailed in great condition.
      I imagine a middle aged guy buying the more expensive Midnight Special 1100 in 1981 and not riding it to death, only on nice days, every once and awhile, keeping it clean and dry in the garage for all these years. whereas a young guy might buy a cheaper model and ride it to death. who am I, Detective Columbo ?
