That's everything I think. A home run.

How about a shot of the tool kit opened.

The bike is totally stock as it came from the dealer except for the Reynolds Ride off centerstand. I do have the original stand. I have talked with the original owner (owned for 26 years) to verify. This was a 2 owner bike.

Holy Crap. Does it also have the wheel lock shoved into the main frame?

That looks like you have a VERY complete specimen. Well done!

No it doesn't. - As I recall that was an option in 82.

I could never own a bike as clean and original as that. I'd have that thing looking like shit in no time. That really is about as nice as can be. I've always wanted to have an S fairing, but my BMW is a /5, and I feel like it would be sacrilege to obscure the very cool headlight bucket/combined gauge which I feel defines the /5. Seems like I really ought to get a /6 or7 so that I can have an S fairing with a clear conscience. I'll see what my wife thinks, and let you all know.

G_Man's '74 R75/6

Hi everyone! New member, although I have been lurking for years.

First post. Thought I'd jump in and post a couple of pics of the Airhead. '74 R75/6.




Mileage: Hard to say if it is the first time or second time around... LOL

And as a previous poster showed above, with a waaay nicer example of a bike by-the-by... the obligatory tool roll shot!


Thanks for looking,
G Man
