I sent the folks with the '96 sport an email to feel them out.. They responded
"Most people don't realize that only 300 of these were made and only 150 imported to the US"

BSA Firebird Scramblers are the same way. I've got one, and know that several thousand were imported to the USA.
But anyone offering one (often massively incorrect, being represented as "completely restored to original") will quote some number they hear about how many were imported.
For years, it was "only 600". Then some smart guy decides to fix that, and uses "only 300". Apparently everyone else picks up on that and uses it as an ironclad reference, so ALL the Firebird adverts for a year said "only 300".
Last month, I saw "only 250", so I'm sure that's the new bogie for internet classified ads for awhile.
Really got to know WHAT YOU ARE BUYING when you use these services, because people will lie when the truth would do better ....
