Hey Jimmy. You are correct. The build date for my R100S is June 1978. It dies have the 1981 Brembo brake update and a Dyna 3 ignition as well. The brake upgrade moved the reservoir to the handlebar. I still have some things to do to get it into the shape I want but it is a hoot to ride.
see you at the Laurel Highlands next year.
86 K100RS EML
2007 F800ST & 2014 F800GS & 2014 F700GS
This classic rolled off the line when I was 2 months old. We're attached at the hip. Can't see ever giving this one up.
Nice /5; Like the mufflers. What are they?
1977 Triumph Bonneville
1980 Honda XL500S
I fell in love with Airheads in my youth in the 60's and 70's when I was riding 2-Strokes. It took a while but now I have 3 and this is my favorite.
The '83 R65 is a fun canyon carver - the '77 R75 is has been disassembled and is a major restoration moving very slow - since I got the R100S sorted I don't seem to be spending enough time working on the bike - but winters coming....
The '78 R100S is just a pleasure to ride short or long distances and she runs strong.
George - Pops - Godfather ... Stunning 78's you have!
My favorite year for aesthetics, reliability and raw hard working function.
Love my Special Edition R100/7 more every day since I rolled it off the showroom floor in 1978. Hope my picture doesn't spoil the party.
