Looking for a 3/4 seat that fits an R90S or similar cowl - on a budget
So I don't really know for sure what fits but it seems that a lot do.
I have the cowl, need the complete seat with pan, foam, cover, hinges, bumpers, etc...

I've got up to about $150, so I know my chances might be slim.

Thanks!

(besides the ding) No cap or petcock. $500 + shipping OBO. The pic i took of the ding didn't turn out but I can email more pics.

Can I ask who did the paint job? I need a painter for a R90s

Thanks!

Hi Dan,
I wish I knew who did the paint work because they sure did a nice job. My guess is that it was done a long time ago. I aquired the tank just as it sits so I have no idea. I've been admiring it for some time as it sits on my work bench, but I don't have a bike that it would fit anymore. If someone could use it, just throw me an offer!

My guess would be Holt BMW in OH, they are the only ones I've seen who have been able to duplicate what the factory put on the R90s.

Pair of peanuts.

From a 1972 1/2 75/5. 41 years old and look it. Scratches, small dings in the fins, etc. No real dents. Typical under scrapes smoothed out. No corrosion/white rust (ever). But quite grubby so got a light sandblast on the outside which also killed the shiny spots. Could use a proper glass beading to soften the surface. Insides still need cleaning. No repairs ever. Look ok unless you get pretty close. Definitely a textural patina. You can kill the brightness with a mild vinegar solution or just wait for them to dull.

$65+ shipping for the pair. International shipping is costly. USPS Money order preferred. (I don't do paypal and checks need to clear).

Looking for R75 top end

I'm looking for an R75 top end pre 9/1975 or more specifically has a 97mm base OD for an ill advised r60 conversion project. Also seeking carbs for an R75 to match.

Hoping to find something in good condition- willing to have bored/honed but the less work required the better.

Willing to buy jugs/head separately but the more complete the better. As far as price? I don't know- depends on what you have...

I saw a nice fairly complete set on ebay but it's 99mm OD- also wondering how hard it would be to have that machined down to fit- any recommendations?
