Started life as a 1983 R80ST. Previous owner up-gunned it to 1050cc with a Siebenrock kit. Solo seat, wixom bags, and the rear end is from a newer R-bike that's easier to get the rear wheel off. Painted a color popular with Jeeps I think. Runs like a top.

A family friend gave me his 1976 R90/6 on Friday. All I had to do was dig it out of his garage! I spent the weekend removing the fairing, luggage and weird seats, along with a really corroded battery. I'm forming a plan now to get it back on the road soon. It hasn't been out of the garage since 1991.

I'll need to source some parts soon (headlight ring, lens, reflector and a seat) to make it roadworthy, but I'll get it running and make sure the brakes and suspension are solid first and replace the tires. I'm looking forward to my new project!

oh lucky you ............. WHAT a gem

you might think the seats are weird, BUTT ..... I'll bet ya they are 100x better than a stock seat for riding any sort of long distance.

hang onto them for now and at least give them a good try ! you WILL be surprised

Thanks Harry! You're right about the seats, they look really comfy. I doubt I'll do a lot of long distance touring. I may go with a (reversible) cafe racer type look for this bike. Nothing extreme.
