|Bike's Current state|
|I've owned a motorcycle of some sort since 1979, but when this goes i'm retiring.|
At least ill the kid wants a dirt bike anyway :)
|I have the OEM mirrors too, but these are my favorites|
|These Krausers are included, but need work|
|These are in good repair, the Krausers I have still need refurbishing.|
Krauser latches stink, but I sure like the looks of them.
Other stuff I have lying around:.
- Stainless bolts
- Billet aluminum triple clamp
- Dyna ignition, with a spare or two.
- Spare cables, throttle and clutch
- Spare exhaust
- Spare front and rear fenders (for future projects)
- Spare gators for forks
- Progressive Works Springs, front an rear and spares
- 3 drive shafts (can't have too many extras)
- Piles of bulbs, books, seals, footpegs, grips, boots and bolts.
- Dual discs, bar mounted master cylinder.
- S-Air Box
|(2014 photo) The bike as purchased in 2014. Wire wheels are gone.|
The original owner was retiring from two wheelers and looking to clear out space.
He and his wife were quite sentimental when I came to pick it up in 2014
|Forks are off a later model R100S, which have dual disks. (2014 photo)|
The seller purchased the bike in 1977 and had improved and maintained the bike with passion right up until the day I arrived. I assured him that I was essentially adopting the bike, like a 2nd son, and it would live a good life since I learned a valuable lesson in my last sale. As sappy as it sounds, that mattered to the seller, and I meant it at the time.
|Engine was recently rebuilt and bored to closer to 1000cc. exact details are unknown|
|You'll notice I've already removed the back rest and the luggage rack.|
This is leaner and more to my taste for the short 1/2 hour rides that I do.
It's exactly 30 days later, I sold the Ducati for $5,000 and spent most of that money on more goodies.
I might have gone a little overboard shopping:
Overbuilt swingarm brace is overkill, but it makes me happy.
Fork brace, an airhead just looks wrong w/out em
Triple clamp, billet aluminum is never a bad idea for anything.
Frame braces. Don't need'em but they look racey. (Uninstalled)
Lester mags, and Avon tires so i can go tubeless and avoid rust.
Now sports a Factory Seat, and Corbin Seat as a spare.
Stainless bolt kit. Good summer project replacing every bolt.
Not all have been installed, it's an ongoing project.
bar mounted master cylinders brake far better. (Not my bike inphoto)
LEDs, you just gotta have these.
Extra front and rear fenders, to paint black and trim/customize
I'm thinking more tire should show from the sides and rear..
Current State as of April 2017
| Currently thinking a bare aluminum tank, charcoal fenders and no fairing.|
The gold paint is new, so I'll box it all up and sell, or keep.
