Going back to the fist post in this thread, I too, am thinking of buying an older airhead. A few candidate "project" sort of bikes, which is what I'd like to find at a affordable price, have come to my attention but it's going to be a few weeks till I can really follow up with the current custodians of the bikes. I'm considering /5 to /7 bikes. In talking with the current owners a common theme comes through, and that is the airheads are relatively simple and an old timer like me (57), that's more familiar with points and carbs than the electronic equivalent gizzmos, may have a chance of getting and keeping one running. I just sold my '04 R1150R, my first BMW, and was glad to sell it before I had to replace the battery. It sounded like a semi-major deal and then some say it had to be just the "right" kind of battery or the ABS might not work right........... Who needs THAT?
