If you plan to use the /6 gas tank then the seat that fits is either a LWB /5 or a /6. When the R100's came out in 1977 they got a longer gas tank so an R100 seat with a /6 tank has a giant gap between tank and seat. Or do you fancy an RS or S bike seat with a cowling? They use the longer /7 tank so same problem.

This is a Corbin, of course, seat is for a /7 but it is on a bike with a /6 tank. Some riders say they don't mind. :lol3

I'm sure I would mind, but I'm also sure I could fix it. Slightly relocating the tank or the seat or both doesn't seem like too big of a deal to me. Although to be honest I like the r100 tanks better also.

You can't get much moving the tank. It hits the frame where the tubes flare out. You can move the seat forward, but then the subframe sticks out the other end--and it's a lot of work because of the under seat contours.

Moving either the seat or the tank would not be easy. I would put some design effort into that before pulling the trigger.

So far that's one part of what I've always done with motorcycles that hasn't been brought to the BMW party. The biggest deal is the bikes look so wonderful in stock form that I didn't feel any compulsion to modify them. I still don't really, so does that mean I'm looking for a /7 tank and seat/cowl combo? I'm assuming r90s combos are absurd expensive.

Yes and Yes. But you might find repros. on the seat/cowl. Also the 3/4 seat/cowl takes a different rear tool tray than the double bench seat/cowl.

+1 What Plaka says.

The /7 gas tank also holds more gas. The seat cowls and the rest of the parts for those vintage seats are often cheaper that the /5 and /6 stuff on Ebay. I also like the 3/4 seat in that vintage.

It costs a lot of moola to paint this stuff professionally but many riders are competent enough with a rattle can to get by.

Also where is a good site to search for a S.F. Bay Area bike?

Since you're not actually buying or selling anything you should start a separate thread rather than hijack the flea market thread. I come to this thread to spend money I don't have. Questions about good/bad years can be discussed endlessly (and have been), and screw with the signal to noise ratio.

Also, I'm in Sonoma County too (Santa Rosa). Let me know if you need any help.

Good luck, I had two of those in my basement ... had to give them away. I have a complete RT faring too. All the kids ae making 'cafe' bikes ... they've become a dime a dozen.

Airhead Flea Market Discussion Thread.
 
Yeah, we all love to talk about a good deal. But when that conversation is added to the flea market thread, it really makes it hard to see what's being offered up for sale.

So, if you've got comments about a post Over There, put them In Here and link to the post.

Easy peasy and it'll help everyone sell their stuff better.

Thanks.

Clean it up and take better pictures. I've sold 2 Windjammers for $150 and $100 respectively and another no-name fairing for about $500 in trade for other airhead parts.

Clean part and clean pictures. I'm telling you.

With the stock rear end that could be quite the sleeper.

It's not the bikes fault if you have broken or faulty tools. That nut gets something like 75 ft/lbs doesn't it? I would think the flange and nut could tolerate over a hundred. How could you exceed this enough to damage the threads? I'm not trying to be too ruff on you. Yes I have made my share of mistakes. But, were you drinking excessively the day you worked on this? Just not paying attention? Will you now slow down enough to take care not to break so many things?

Hope you find your part, sorry I don't have one. They do show up on Ebay but the ones sold as single units can be not so cheap. The only way to get one cheap there is buy broken boxes and strip them. Then you have more parts to sell, see?
