Any mods other than the rear rack?
no other mods that I'm aware of ... rear rack is the only piece I can find that was added.
unfortunately seller's dad passed away last year.
there's is NO way that engine got painted black without entire motor being out of frame. all indications are this bike has never been apart. factory plastic straps are intact all over bike's frame.
every single picture of any R90S, that I've been able to find or heard of all have silver engine bodies????
