I bought 4 years ago at around 67k miles and prompty attached sidecar. Did valve job at 88k and transmission rebuild at 98k, engine still has 130 pounds compression on original rings. Just turned over 100k miles, though transmission leaked oil out neutral switch and had to be replaced with the one from my R65LS. I got carried away with the spline lube and clutch occasionally slipped, so just put in new clutch and kickstart tranny from my lemon R100GS.
Looking at your serial number, ours were probably in the assembly building at the same time.

When a person asks you for advice, they don't want advice. They want corroboration.
