    Bar Bike

    Paul,

    Based upon the WONDERFUL concept of your GORGEOUS Bar Bike, I suggest new categories:

    For Racing Bikes: TT = Tourist Trophy (this part is not new, of course...)

    Cafe Racer?

    I believe it can be argued that the R100RS, at least in its early history, was a "Factory Cafe Racer." Purists will counter that it was too cushy, too heavy, too clumsy, too slow, too "mass...

    Cafe Racers

    I'm getting all choaked-up! Pass the Kleenex.

    Nothing wrong with your brain though, Jota (nothing that a spel checker won't fix!)

    RS Cylinder Base Gaskets?

    Dap,

    I do NOT presume to speak with authority on the matter but I have had the cylinders off my second RS, a '78 R100RS (thirty years ago) and my current (1977) R100RS and I have never...

    Technical Library

    Dap,

    As you obviously know already, having a good technical library is an enormous help.

    I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed in this book!

    Safety Wiring

    Hey, Dap!

    First I would like to say you are doing an awesome job on that R100RS rebuild, a model that is very near & dear to me.

    It is quite apparent that you are a very capable mechanic and...

    Sticky: Big Alu

    Bikerfish:

    F.Y.I. the stock fork brace/fender mount is not aluminum but is stainless steel.

    It probably wasn't/isn't stiff enough for the aggressive rider but I don't think it is as flimsy as...

    Nice shot, Mister Mountain King!

    James,

    I enjoy shooting old barns. Here's a HUGE white one I went past last summer in Missouri (but it COULD have been Iowa...)

  15. Mailboxes etc.

    James,

    I hold a kind of a strange fascination with certain varieties of old mail boxes.

    Although this one is not yet abandoned, I thought it interesting.

    I spied it last summer while riding...

    Tank Bag Options

    You can carry a LOT of stuff in there (but you don't HAVE to!)

    FWIW, I had a nearly new (5 months old) BMW condenser fail. The initial symptom was the very slightest, almost unnoticeable hesitation at odd times during acceleration (naturally, right after...

    Yea, verily!

    I bought a pair of ignition coils for my Airhead (a 1977 R100RS) and I could not be more pleased with the coils but ESPECIALLY the level of service I received.

    Riding on Old Tires

    Tires just aren't that expensive but they ARE really, REALLY important on a motorcycle.

    Why risk your life over the price of a new tire?

    You should get that old tire off of there. Muy pronto!

    Armstrong Pumps

    Every one I ever tried was virtually worthless, when it came to pumping up a tire.

    Personally, unless it is a matter of "authenticity" I see it as a moot point.

    Just one man's humble opinion.
