WTB R100RS Bars (correction)

Thanks for the clarification... still new to the airhead thing. The R100RS bars are what I'm looking for then.

Cheers,
Claude

I have a set of Bikemaster brand "drag bars" on my /5 that are very similar to the ones pictured. Those ones pictured may have slightly more pull back, but not much. Mine are 7/8", not 22 mm, but I didn't have to do anything to get the handlebar controls on them. I bought them from Economy Cycle, where I buy parts for my RD350. I think they were about $30. If you look up my handlebar mounted MC thread, you'll see what they look like. Check it out.

Not seeing anything new in my PM box... I see that you're in Ormond though. I'm about an hour away from you and have a couple of motorcycle wrench buddies that live up in your area. It'd be nice to meet a fellow airhead rider.

Looks like I need a /5 headlight.
This would need to include lens, reflector and bezel! No bucket or internals, just the light assembly and bezel :)

Isn't this the situation that people want an early R65 headlight for? Check it out. If it is the R65 is better light or something.

R65 gets you H4

Vech at BenchMarkWorks sells a repop assembly with plastic reflector, not as bad as it sounds IMO. works well.

p/n 62128050027c12 hl conv not cheap at $150.55 but it's about all you need, short a relay to improve power supply to the bulb, IIRC.

Totally aware of those kits :-)
Hucky has one on the cheap too. I was hoping to buy the stocker off someone who converted. Hoping to keep this r75 mega cheap and mega stock! Plus I need the bezel, haven't seen a kit that included that..I'm probably wrong though.

Just so you know, the stock setup, in good condition, is worth some real money. I smashed one up ten years ago, and bought a new lens, and good used reflector and bezel, and I think it still all totalled at least $100. I doubt you'd save any real money in going the stock route, so you might as well take the opportunity to upgrade, unless it's really important to you to keep it all stock.

I don't know. I can't go much lower on the price. It would cost me twice as much to replace it. I know it is not original, but in my opinion all of the modifications have only made it a more reliable, and enjoyable bike.
