You got a steal! Maybe a few headaches down the road, but lets hope not.

Owned by a San Diego Fireman, holiday season, cold/wet weather (this week), baby due in February, wanting to start a business. . .all this equals to the 748 being almost given away. Perfect timing for a buyer. . . I jumped. He actually started at $5500, still a good price. His wife is happy it's sold. My wife on the other hand. . .

Headaches? Isn't that part of owning these Italian exotics? I'll still have the reliable 919.

Make sure you get the belts and valves checked too. Most of the 748 should by now been updated with new rockers
