I like the story and am sorry for being so slow to get back to it. My R50 has 37k on it and had a full resto done about 10 years ago.
For reasons unknown last summer I decided to act like I had money to spend and went on a search for a /2
It didn't take long to find this one and it was even better than I ever dreamed of getting. It was an older resto that was done nice. Motor done, new rims and stainless spokes and nipples, full stainless exhaust, stainless fasteners, new seats, ect, ect. And the best part, a fairly low price
Sorry to see that pic of your Buco lid
I would like to get a set of Enduro beatle bags but the price is hard to justify .
