Ex-Dan Gurney 1975 Honda XL175

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1975 Honda XL175 was purchased new by Dan Gurney’s All American Racers Inc. and now shows just 1,085 miles. Gurney gave the bike to engine developer John Miller in 1979, who reportedly never used it and kept it on his ranch until his passing in 2014. The selling dealer acquired this Honda from Miller’s estate and has re-sealed the 175cc 4-stroke single and 5-speed gearbox. A selection of AAR memorabilia is included with the sale, including business cards from Gurney and Miller, stickers, and articles on AAR. This XL175 is now being offered by DENWERKS with California blue plates and the original California pink slip signed by Dan Gurney. The bike is finished in Honda Orange with black trim and silver fenders. Scratches are visible on the fuel tank and front fender, and lighting and mirrors are still in place. Newer tires are fitted. Instrumentation on XL175s included a speedometer and a tachometer through 1976. The instruments are said to work correctly, and 1,085 miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer. Power comes from a 175cc four-stroke single cylinder engine with a 5-speed gearbox. When the seller acquired the bike the engine was leaking, so the seller removed the engine and re-sealed it. An employee of the seller has ridden the bike about a mile, and footage of the bike running and moving on the seller’s property is included in the attached video. The seller has provided photos matching the original pink slip to the engine number, frame tag, and blue California license plate. A selection of AAR memorabilia is included with the bike, including magazine articles, business cards from Dan Gurney and John Miller, stickers and other small items. A walkaround and ride video is attached below.
