Technics RS-715US Reel to Reel

I bought about 2 months ago a Technics RS-715US
Reel to Reel Tape Deck built in 1973. There is not a scratch on it except the Wooden Pannel’s need to be Replaced since they are Particle Board. I even found in Germany the OEM Factory Wired Remote Control. This model has it all on it. The front is Solid Stainless Steel Plate, it has 3 Motor’s, 4 Heads, Auto Reverse, 4 Track’s, Solonoid Operation, Feather Touch Control’s, Echo Sound on Sound, HPF Head’s, Fast Breaking, 7” Reel’s. This is one Heavy Machine close to 80 Pound’s. The Only thing I had to do to it was Service it & put new Belt’s & a new Rubber Pinch Roller on it. And the Rewind is so fast you don’t want to get close to it. It’s made to last 70 years or more. I’ve never ever seen one built this good ever. If this one was used 5 times I’d be stretching it. The Break Pads had no wear at all on them. I can barely move it it’s so heavy. I even got the Original Take up Reel for it.
