Colour schemes are the same, burnt red with gold trim. The CCC example still sports is original paint.
The external ad mentions original exhaust. This is a mild surprise because, given the full original documentation on the CCC bike, we know the original owner had trouble with corrosion on the original exhaust. So, he upgraded to the Jardine Headers unit.
The five-spoke wheels are an add-on for the 1979 model year, while the spokes on the ’78 provide a more traditional look. We are not sure about the tires on the external listing, the Dunlops on the CCC auction bike are new. The rear passenger backrest on the CCC bike is a useful addition, reversible of course, if the new owner should prefer the bike without it.
