One of the prettiest color schemes the RS came in! I tried to buy one about twelve years ago, but it sold before I could scrape up the dough.

Ive even held it out an adv riders (ian408) car window in 'merica.

Photography is about angles/perspective as well as light and subject.

Not mine....

Seen today on the way back down the old Pac. At Pie in the Sky.





At least his engine is waterproofed by all the oil. Having said that I took a photo of this bike in 2007...http://rosssmodels.hobbyvista.com/im...lassic2007.htm

That poor bike needs some serious TLC! I'll bet the rear shocks are original.

Its actually road registered as a 90S also. The transport department refuse to correct it as their documents say its a 90S & their documents are accurate ...only good thing about arguing with a public servant is when you stop.

Couldn't resist the matching pump. Yeah, they're still squeezing some juice outta east Tejas. Wouldn't OSHA just love that open belt drive?
