Would the final drive be of any use to me, either mount with the r100 installed given it can, or be used with the present r90? I looked on max BMW and the only numbers that swap out for sure it seems is the trans. I'd buy the bike as spares for my r90 cafe, with the idea of rebuilding the 100s and installing it in the r75/6 frame at some point.. Any info would be appreciated. If none of the above swaps is possible I'd pass ( as I don't need another project). Asking price is $750.00. Seems just for parts the bike is work that.
This is my 1974 r90/6 frame with a 1978 R100S engine. I retained the 1974 kick start transmission . No problem swapping everything around. I used the 1974 wiring harness....had to do a little head scratching as the engine wiring was a little different but no big deal....Used a 1973.5 LWB sub frame. The thing has parts and pieces from too many years of BMW's to even count...a real "mutt".
