    My left knee

    Is also giving me problems because of arthritis, to the point where I don't trust it to support us two-up on a trip of any length. So we're driving to the rally:cry

    A bargain

    Look, Honey, it's only $48,000 in Canadian funds!

    The centre stand on my '77 R100 is toast and I picked up a nice Reynolds Ride-off stand on E-Bay.
    Does the Reynolds stand use the stock retraction springs or did it come with custom springs? If it...

    Thanks

    Thanks, guys.
    Pretty much the process I envisioned, don't know if I'll tackle it myself, though.

    Hi, Brian.
    I owned it for a couple of years because I wanted a Beemer. Enjoyed it but decided I wanted something more like a GS or roadster and sold it to one of my brothers-in-law.

    I'm back in the Airhead fold again, having re-purchased my 1977 R100RS.
