Dang, is that last photo Airhead Chess? Neat.

Benthic, you have 1-3/4 months to get the R80 assembled and sorted out...

I would like to do a 1970-1980 fork rebuild. It seems like there is a lot of talk on ADV regarding this. Maybe we can even video it and post up here for everyone to use.

just ride all the way up Hwy 1 and 101 to Fortuna, then 36 to Red Bluff and down 99 to Chico. that should add a day or two for the trip and make it a much better ride than coming straight up I-5. Happy to help

or ride up 395 to Tahoe then 89 to Quincy and down 70 to Chico

Are you sure you're not reading my mind?

+1 for fork rebuild.

Airheads, beer, and a workshop? I'm there.
