Really? Did you have to cut the exhaust nuts off? I think they were seized.

in a box in the garage. probably try to sell it on r65.com or something.

the new kickstand makes the dismount a less hysterical-to-watch event.

It will fit all '85-'95 monoshock R65's, R80's, and R100's, so throw it out to the biggest audience possible.

However, it won't fit any of the Paralever bikes like the Mystic or R100R.
