    Mine look to have about 2" clearance. I put some ~1/2" spacers at the muffler mounts to give more room. Do not remember if I switched mufflers side to side. I seem to remember there wasn't much space and was concerned about heat.

    Thanks for asking - My '94 R100RT Picture

    My new-to-me 1994 R100RT. I've had many bikes with this being my first airhead. All of my other BMWs were K bikes. I had to have a classic airhead and here it is. Here's to many outstanding miles! Thanks for encouraging pictures.

    Regards,
    Rob Owen

    my new airhead...

    ...this one came w/ an extra wheel! I'm looking forward to many miles on this rig, starting w/ a ride around Eastern Oregon later this month. The tug started life as a '77 R100S, #306 off the assembly line.

    I hope to restore the s-fairing this coming winter (I have the original fairing w/ gauges, it needs some elbow grease and paint). The seat cowl is long gone so the bike has a new /7 repro seat. I added the /6 valve covers 'cause I had them on a shelf and the /7 covers had been stripped of paint and never repainted, they were a bit homely.

    Off to go for a ride...

    Rig

    N-I-C-E rig!! Post it in the "Sidecars & Trikes" Forum as well.

    Are you having any "fatigue issues" with those low euro bars? Who, may I ask, set it up?

    Talking '71 R60/5, This is starting to become a habit...

    Just arrived last night. This had been in the same family since new. Passed down from grandfather, to father, to son.




    Can anyone identify the cases and rear rack?

    I switched the bars from some taller (new) slash 2 bars to the low/wide bars (they are low, wide, sidecar bars so are wider than euro bars). I did this because I eventually want to get the s-fairing back on the bike so wanted to test the lower bars (since the taller bars aren't compatible w/ the fairing).

    As for fatigue, I love the bars. They allow me to lean slightly forward which is very comfortable on my back versus sitting more straight-up. So, comfort and leverage is very good but I haven't tested them on a long trip, that will happen later this month. I'll report back on how I like them after a 1,000+ mile road trip!

    Lonnie Cook (now in Boise, ID) did most of the set-up (as I understand from the previous owner). It is set up well, I'm very impressed w/ the handling of this rig!

    Cool, when did we get a sidecar forum? I haven't been paying attention!

    1985 r80rt

    I found this lady in rural IN for $2600. With 43k on the clock and in very ridable condition I feel I stole her. Very well maintained, but feel the rear shock is quite bouncy. I've set it to a lower setting, but have yet to ride to find out. Just had a cervical fusion and have a couple more weeks before I ride again says the doc.
    Came with an extra Corbin seat that is in drastic need of recovering. Would really like to get a backrest put on it and keep the stock seat, stock. Luv the backrest on my LT.

    IMO, I think it's this style Reynolds:

    Good catch!

    A better picture of my rack matches your posted picture.

    Now only if I could get a postive ID on the cases.
