    The prices are all over the place. But, I have seen nice ones for as low as $4,500 and as high at $7,500, even more. How it looks, the miles and how it rides is more important than the year when...

    My R80RT had one of those (86 bought new), but my 88R100RS, 78RS, and 95 R100RT had the smaller box because the battery box is full of battery. Only the R80 had the small battery, and the tool box...
