    My new S

    image.jpgI just picked up a 1977 R100S,one owner bike. Pretty much original condition except for a replacement left mirror.Included with the bike,tool kit,shop rag and tire pump under the seat.I'll post a picture when I get a chance.I'm trying to sell my RS to make room,if she doesn't sell I'm going to have to get a bigger garage.

    Yes, there is a size limit to pictures, expressed as pixels -- around 1000 wide and 1000 high. You will need to use some software to reduce the size...Windows Paint has that feature.

    Well, I took some time and resized the picture,she fits in the garage nicely.Now the problem is which one to ride and which ones sit.

    Now that's what I call a classy looking ride.

    What a great find.

    Gorgeous. As I think the R100 is the best airhead I've had and the RS is the only other one I would have, you can park it in my garage if need be. Just leave the keys in case I need to move it.

    I may just keep both.I also have a '78 R80/7 and a 1977 Triumph Bonneville.The problem is you can only ride one ata time.When a bike sits unused that is no good.

    That is not a problem. That is just opportunity waiting!

    I totally agree. A few months ago I had three bikes. One was relatively new, the other two were a '78 and an '81. The bikes of those vintage certainly don't like to sit and gave me minor issues when I didn't ride them for a few weeks. I got tired of the effort of keeping all them in tip top shape.

    The other side of this coin is I also have a hard time letting one go. I put a lot of time,money and effort into making a nice clean rideable bike out of her.I like my R80/7 for diffferent reasons.I haven't put a dime into that one other than regular maintenance.She's a definite keeper.
