    Let's go for a ride

    Mike,

    Bike looks great. Can't wait to see it in person and go for a ride together. I've got mine sorted out and I'm enjoying the airhead experience.

    Marty's, gone but not forgotten

    Never bought a bike from Marty's, but I did spent countless hours drooling and took a lot of brochures home to dream over.

    The RT fairing is in bad need of a good paint job. The screen is marginal. I'm thinking I'll store it for now and perhaps restore it at a later date.

    I have the Marc Parnes balancer, and love it.

    Bought it originally to balance single side swing arm Honda VFR rear wheels, with adaptor.

    Still a mystery

    Well, looks like I'll need to check the other side when I pull the wheel off to see what it looks like. :scratch
    Perhaps I will see a pass-through tube from the back side... stay tuned sports fans....

    You're right, it is for the drum brake rod, and yes, mine has a disk in the rear so no need for the hole hence the plug.

    What is this plastic thing on my differential?

    I have a 1979 R100 RT that I just bought today and I noticed a plastic piece on the differential, what is it? I'm worried that should it fail I could loose my differential oil.

    Here she is!
