    New Member In Manitoba

    Hi.I have recently come back into the motorcycle fold after a 27 year layoff due to studies, marriage, kids, work. I have had an old R69S Willis VW conversion in my garage ever since. I started to work on the clutch because it couldn't handle the torque of the VW engine. It ended up being a total rebuild.The engine is now 1835 cc with a 45mm Weber side draft on a custom manifold attached to dual port heads. It has never run with this engine.

    I still don't have time to wrench it so I am looking for a mid 80"s or so R100RT. If anyone north of the medicine line has one, let me know.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Welcome, and hope you find your bike.

    Keep in mind that U.S. bikes that are older than 15 years are RIV exempt.

    Riv

    Say, Rinty.
    How does all this RIV work? I know there are more scoots stateside than here. What is involved with bringing one over the medicine line?
