I was under the impression you weren't supposed to salute unless you were in uniform?

I don't know what the exact circumstances are but I felt it was appropriate long before they made it legal.

I didn't have much fun in the military and I was not what you might think of as a good soldier. I should have maybe been busted more times than I was. I was a Rebel, I guess. Didn't want to be there. But they trained me and made me a Medic and I was the best Medic in my outfit. Might be tooting my horn a bit but I think I'm not far from wrong.

All this is good talk for me some. But not really in place for this thread. I will erase my posts concerning the extra subject here in 24 hrs. Just like to keep things a little clean.
No, don't erase it. Why? It's your history, your part of the story, and I'm glad to know it. Just like I'm glad I know my dad's WWII stories and my grandfathers' WWI stories and the story I heard just last weekend from my country neighbor who was a radioman in Vietnam who now goes back and works underground in the ministry. I agree with some of it, some I don't, but I like hearing all of it. I came here because I'm a motorcyclist, but I keep coming back because of the stories.

Yep, don't erase it - a little thread drift is fine with me. Keeps this place real and the Inmates real.

And thanks for your service.

  • HD Version II pannier mounts system w/ hardware
  • One pair of custom panniers
  • One pannier to mounts hardware kit
  • One new custom length turn signal bracket (the used one in the pic is staying on the bike)

The asking cost is $575 plus shipping. I'm also intersted in trading for pre-70 airhead parts. Or maybe post-70 parts...

The bike is not included.

Email direct (not an ADVrider PM) if interested.

Thanks,
Carl
Deal pending. Received a decent amount of trade offers. Some were really bizarre.

Two 22mm handlebars and R100R instrument and lighting bits

A brand new Fehling euro low bar, $60 shipped within usa.

A brand new Rizoma black 22mm handle bar. It looks like these. It seems to be 22mm despite the the website claiming it being 7/8". $70 shipped within usa.

Also, I have various bits related to headlight, instrument and front turning lights from a 92 R100R. Photos can be found here.

headlight mounting bracket,
turning lights and mounting pieces,
tach
speedo (SOLD)
speedo drive cable,
instrument cups (SOLD),
a pair of mirrors
instrument indicator panel.
two side stands from unknown airhead.

PM me if you are looking for some particular bit in that area. I'm keeping the headlight though.

Anyone want free R75/5/6/7 / R65 1978-80 piston rings?

I bought these rings from Motobins for my R75/5. Later, I ended up Nikasil plating the barrels. This set has a chrome compression ring, which won't work for Nikasil barrels. They were installed on the pistons and inserted into the barrels, but never saw actual use. They were put on and taken off with a piston ring expander.

I will toss these in a small priority mail flat rate box and ship them to whoever wants them. You pay the cost of shipping ($5.35). They're motobins part no 50370.

Wanted: Rear brake Master cylinder pivot pin and arm/lever

In need of this piece. It actuates the plunger/piston on the rear MC. If someone could help me out with this I'll save a ton `o cash. The only way to acquire this part is to purchase the entire MC from the dealership. A $200.00 hit!

Ideally it should come with the pivot pin and clips. Bike in question is a 79 R100 RS. Thanks.
