    fresh out of 5 years of storage

    Just bought this "project" 1974 R90S. It has a lot of period correct options, (the biggest gas tank I've ever seen, Avon Lynx 4 piece fairing, fallert oil sump, solo and dual seats, lester mag wheels, etc. Not sure, but thinking i will take all that stuff off and take it back to a silver smoke R90S. More once I decide.

    Y'know,.. somebody put a lot of expense and effort into that bike. If it were mine, I'd fix it up and run it as is. If you decide you can't stand it as it is, you could then do the project,...or,... sell it to me.

    That looks like a bike my friend Bill owned for many years in Santa Cruz, CA.

    Tank, fairing, Lester mags, I just threw up in my mouth. Take it back to stock, quickly.

    This picture was taken today after fitting a new 3/4 sport solo tailsection that took me 3 months from start to finish, to acquire from it's previous owner. I also switched to a vented grille in the front of the fairing because of the hot weather here in Texas.

    Very nice indeed. Sitting behind that fairing is one of the nicest places to be, especially when the weather is bad. Some of us used to refer to cold, drizzley nights as "RS weather".

    When I rode it to Canada the truck in front of me at the border crossing had a bumper sticker that spelled out the acronym of you (photo shopped) license plate. The border guards were having him empty the truck bed and the cab.
    Probably thought that last F stood for Frenchie or something, lol. Wasn't a border crossing into Quebec was it? They just about outlaw English up there.

    I understand what you are saying, most of my purist airhead friends say the same thing. Re-do it just as it is.

    Is there anyway you could try to verify if this is your friends old bike? Really don't have any history on the bike, rumored to have in excess of 300M miles.

    I had the same thoughts, at first. the more I look at it, the more I think I may just re-do it as it is. Unique, although some would say hideous.

    Agreed. But if you really do decide to go back to stock on that bike, I'd be willing to take that seat off of your hands. That's an R100RS seat, and I would really like to have one like that on my '77.
