    Have you looked to see if it has been converted to long wheel-base (LWB) ?

    Can you post a photo of the drive shaft tube of the swingarm?

    looks like a short wheelbase, where the rear rim meets the subframe forty five degree down tube.

    Start low always prepared to walk. There's a lot of airheads out there.
    What was it, twenty thousand R90S's alone were manufactured not counting the R60's and R75's. Then came the /7's and so on. that's my 2 spicolees for nothin.

    Not to change the topic, but whooee, it's been cold out here. Usually high 50's in the morning warming to a pleasant mid to high 70's. Absotootly amazingly perfect for morning rides. and this for the last several weeks.

    this has been perfect temps for airheads, in fact can't believe each morning, sunny, cool, late afternoon with a couple pints watching grass grow. Hope it holds till next year at the fair grounds. NOw back to looking for another airhead project.
