I got a text from a friend of my Son saying that he wanted to sell his old airhead. I’ve been looking for a project bike for a while now but I’m not sure that this is it. The bike is a 1978 r80/7. 1000 cc jugs installed 40 mm bings. Matching ratio rear drive.
The transmission is out. Needs replaced or rebuilt. Input shaft splines are worn. And a clutch and rear main seal. She's rough. What I’m wondering is if this is worth the time and treasure to restore or is it to end up a parts donor.I would also need to get some idea of what a fair offer would be for this bike.
My last 3 bikes have been oilheads that I took into high miles. This would be my first airhead and would be a long-term project as I have a RT that I’ll use day to day.
Any advice from those that have been there would be appreciated. Thanks guys
The picture thing is giving me some trouble but I'm working on it
