Mystic and Standard R100R are same except the tail and seat. Also Mystics bars are lower and the dash is nicer. The R100GS seats and rear rack really look good on these bikes.

I like that photo; the overhead view really shows the symmetry of the airhead. Sweet!

With all this talk about '95 R100R's, couldn't resist posting mine again. City cases were standard. The chromed heads and carb tops were factory options.

This pic is my first airhead, a '92 R100R in White, a color not available on any of the R100R models years, But the color tag under the seat definitely matched the code for White. Must have been a special order. This bike went to salvage heaven after I was T-Boned by an 84 year old grandma who ran a stop sign,

Nice R100R's. Partial to black on a Beemer but the white looks great and I have seen other white ones. Those City cases look nice. Been looking for a set or maybe some 30 liter Kauser bags. To bad about the LOL running into you but it sounds like your okay and you found a even better replacement.

I brought home this '84 R80RT this week, and am going through all of the cleaning, adjusting, fluid changes, carb synchronization, valve lash adjustment, end-to-end nuts and bolts check, detailing, etc.

Spark plugs were both loose (good threads, just not tightened), all four exhaust crossover pipe clamps are broken, replaced a couple of bulbs, removed float bowls and inspected floats, needles, bowl contents, replaced fuel lines (needs fuel filters), etc.

That's a pretty clean 84 RT. Nice color. Hell of a shop you got there.

Hell of a bike lift !! πŸ˜†

Owning an old Airhead is easy.
Keeping an old Airhead running great is the true test.

Does this make you feel safer, Scot?

I was just cleaning, polishing, and adjusting valves in the previous pic, so no danger of pulling a bike off on top of me.

And as to hydraulic failures, I can tell you from many years of hydraulic technician work, they are seldom "quick" or rapid in the loss of pressure or drop speed. Even a blown hose, which is pretty rare, will generally result in a lowering of a cylinder, rather than a "drop".

I have owned this forklift for better than seven years, and even at its worst, it might leak down overnight, leaving the tilt angled down, but no major failure.
I always park it at floor level overnight, anyway.

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.

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 ...............
