    Outstanding job! What kind of mufflers are those or what kind of treatment is on them? Looks great, sort of like a gun barrel.

    I have an '84 that is a project, hasn't run in 11 years (but isn't locked up either). Looking for ideas and your bike is great inspiration.

    That is absolutely gorgeous. The more these old Airheads age we come to realize how perfect a design they were. Enjoy your bike, it will probably outlive you!

    Amazing is right. Almost makes me want to run out and get married before I hit the big 50 in a couple. Nice bike. Great wife!

    Here's my 1977 R75/7. I had been considering doing all types of things to her, but have now realized that in the short term, it's best to just ride her for the summer to ensure mechanical reliability. I bought her from another airhead who rescued her after 12 years or so in a barn. He replaced seals, rebuilt the carbs, and replaced the front tire. I need to replace the rear tire, get new shocks on the rear, and consider some seat work to make the bike safe and comfortable enough to build some miles on her. She apparently could still use some carb tweaking too, but I'm going to depend on the kindness of strangers to help me out on that. She's been to the dealer here, and they can't get them quite sorted out either. I suspect it's just going to be one of those trail-and-error things.

    I'm not up to a complete restoration, but I think I can freshen her up a bit and make her a daily driver. The bike is a little rougher than this pic would have you believe, and this is after hours spent just cleaning it up with many hours still ahead.

    My '73 LWB (2999159) /5 after it's third rebuild... originally Silber; then Mercedes-Benz Colorado Tan, and now Black. Owned since new, he's gone full circle; from out-of-the-crate naked, to full-on, two-up, Windjammer touring rig, and back to naked, solo sport bike (she won't ride anymore ... says motorpickles are too dangerous) Her loss, my gain...

    I'm still trying to find another original "Stadium" bar end for the right side. And I can't believe I didn't install the H4 conversion and the Brown's side stand years ago.
