    Thank you!
    Is there a difference in pouch and edging colors for different generations or years, I've seen a lot of variations? I'm trying to buy as close to what would have come with the bike.

    Getting ready to have mine blasted also so interested to see the feedback on this. I don't trust clear coat too much though, it seems to last a few years then looks like crap.

    I checked the site posted above and another also, no luck. Build date on bike is 12/83 which matches what I'm seeing on these sites. So, I've got a plain R100. I'm okay with this but it would have...

    Tried the HH on my Norge and they seemed very hard on the rotors. Are there some with good stopping power but not hard on the rotors? I put on stainless steel lines on the R this week and now I...

    This is interesting info. I had heard something like this recently, that the US dealers did the conversion.

    Great, thanks! Have the No-Mar also, wish I'd got one years ago, they are a real labor saver.

    Some of what I read indicated it was not so much the retention when flat but rather when inflated. Tubeless tires fitted to tube-type rims can experience loss of air when lateral loads brake the...

    Don, thank you! Did you need to make any changes to the rim to install them (the stems)?

    Thanks Brian. There's a ton of threads I've read on this. I've experienced first hand a rapid loss of air with a tube and it was not pretty. I went into oncoming traffic with a full-on...

    Thanks. I found something similar to this in a 90 degree bend but it's pretty heavy and was looking for something in aluminum but what you picture would be an improvement at least over what I've got...

    I would talk to a good frame guy first. Even if the cost was the same as a good used or new replacement it might be worth repairing to keep the originality.
