Well whatever it is, it's not stock. That clearly a Corbin seat and those are definitely aftermarket pipes. If it is an original, it's been repainted. Vintage ones would of had pinstripes around the tank. Also the front and rear fender would be chrome, not color matched. Also vintage models didn't have vented rotors, they were solid disks.

So yeah, most likely a newer remake rather than an actual classic.

Me and another guy in the parking lot that stopped to admire the bike had the discussion on if it was a really nice restomod or a newer bike. We didn't come to a conclusion one way or another, and I missed talking to the older gentleman that rode it. My pancakes had arrived by the time he made it out to the parking lot...

If memory serves, the fenders were polished stainless..
