Actually they hold air, once I replaced the line kit from Oreilly's. I don't know if they were ever worth a darn even when they were new. I'll replace them at some point in the rebuild.

'73 R75/5 SWB Toaster

I started out with with nothing and I've still got most of it left...

I thought the same as scot ..... I thought a wheel clamp would be best.
a good wheel clamp can be made by using an old trailer tongue hitch lift

turned sideways and used as a screw against a fixed side/ guide.
& a longer deck and wondered if the deck was somehow bolted to the forks?
i know they must be but wondered ...............

Hey Marcus. Yup that was me and I remember your Cafe R. Hope to build a nice classis 70's Cafe along those lines someday. Probably make mine a 1000 stroker though lol. Nice to finally meet some of you guys and at future tech days. Great folks and much thanks for putting on these events.

I don't recall posting a photo of my bike here previously so hope this isn't a repeat.
I trailered a 2003 Honda ST 1300 from Colorado to Minnesota and swapped it even up for this 71 R/75 5. I believe I'm the third owner and it has just over 73,000 miles on the clock.
The story is that it was parked from the mid-80's until recently. It was prepped properly for storage so dealing with the effects of long-term storage hasn't been too bad but I'm also updating to things like an improved diode board and brake shoes and tires and cables and it's had both carbs rebuilt.
I don't plan to change the appearance in any significant way - I love the way it looks and I can't go anywhere without people wanting to ask questions about the bike.

Nice looking machine. Must be a major change of pace going from an ST 1300 to an R/75.
