    I ride solo by choice, but usually end up doing a week to 10 days with the wife on her own bike to keep things happy at home.

    I'd say a high mileage well maintained bike is a better bargain for a rider anyway. Mine had sat for 20 years and I think I only have 2 seals left on it that are original. One that was ridden...

    I paid 3600 for my 74 R90/6 with low mileage (18,900) that didn't have the bags. I'm thinking 4k is a hair high but not seeing it, it could be right on the money. How's the paint? That's the...

    Look on snobum's website. There's a $5 upgrade for that problem. I missed it when restoring my 74 R90/6 and it cost me serious bucks when I broke an ear off on the back cover of my tranny.

    Fwiw I bought a nice running 74 and ended up replacing anything made of rubber and all the gaskets, and some of the gearbox parts - so par for the course. ;)

    Around here they ask about 3500 but I don't see any of them selling for anywhere near that. Not to be offensive but probably 2k give or take would be my guess. (Lexington Il)
