One photo shows wetness on the inside left rear wheel - that is only a result of having just finished rebuilding and bleeding the brakes.
She's a bit rough around the edges, but some like it that way. For those that don't, some bodywork (the only rust, with the exception of some minor surface rust, is the inside of the rocker panels - see pics), a paint job, and maybe an updated interior would result in a super clean, unique ride.
