Hmm, single pic, I smell a scam.... Even though they are two different views, who doesn't use more than one pic to sell a $6K bike?

Maybe a scam, but maybe not. People do list bikes in other markets to increase their chances for a sale. Certainly worth looking carefully.....

Be careful with ‘68 Cobra ad. I believe those pics came from a Paul Miller eBay auction from several years ago. I believe they were taken in his neighborhood.

Good eye, Frank!
I believe these two pictures were taken at the same place.
The red 68" Cobra was restored by Paul Miller and sold at Mid-Ohio in 2011. I know the bike and his subsequent owners well since its VIN is just 1 (one) number off my 68" Cobra.
