No..Epco's....a bit deeper and louder than stock (and shorter)...I like the single bend in these better than the 2 bends in the stock pipes

They're aftermarket sports car mirrors I put on back in the 80"s...I think Pep-Boys sold them (Italian brand)....I was just tired of looking at my shoulders all the time.

I'd be interested....I'm planning a cross-country tour next summer anyway but I'm not sure if I'll RS it or GS it yet...my RS needs rings and head work (HOPEFULLY this winter) and I think it deserves at least one trip across America (if my wrists can handle it).

Is it in August again?

However, get that RS ready !! Put a set of K75S bars on this winter, while you are doing the rings, pushrod tube seals, etc., and get ready for a "road run". I installed a set during the "rebuild" and it made a BIG difference in wrist fatigue & daily mileage :-). Have easily done 400 mile days with no problem, RS's love to RUN!!!!

I'd be interested in a RS gathering this summer as well. This thread seems as good a place as any for updates. Keep us posted. And yes, they do love to run.

Lets do it here in New Mexico. We can go see a bunch of cool stuff. I know a few locals who would make it too. Or Phoenix or some warmer city!

Havana Gold

Is this an original color for a '78 RS? A few years ago I purchased a havana gold RS in South America, but it had been modified. The big fairing was gone. An S fairing was in its place. I ran the VIN through a couple of databases, and confirmed that it had indeed been born as a 1978 RS, which led me to assume that a previous owner had wrecked the original fairing and replaced it with the S fairing, then repainting it in havana gold. I subsequently obtained a fairly complete metallic gold RS fairing, and will be looking to get the whole thing painted in the not too distant future. Currently it looks kinda funky, with the tank, cowl, and fenders in havana gold, and the fairing a somewhat distressed metallic gold.

Everything I've read on these bikes has led me to believe that havana gold was not an original color for this bike, but this thread has caused me to think again. I think I like the metallic gold color better -- I like the C3PO look, but the havana gold has an appeal all its own. My strongest inclination is to restore it as closely as I can to the original factory color.

Can anyone enlighten me on this issue?
