It's been a while. In a past life I would've jumped all over this one.

Looks good.  Sounds like the guy did a lot of the clean up work himself which is always a red flag, but at least he's up front about it.  Electrical/wiring is one of the few weak points on this bike, so if done well that's a plus.  Low miles is another plus. 
Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside.

I only considered that possibility for about 1/2 second. I know you are pretty attached to that!
