Cool! An Avon Lynx with nosecone. Looks like Motogrotto's old bike.

If you have the bike and the fairing, put it on! If you don't like it, you can always take it back off.

The stock R100R / Mystic bars may not be compatible. You'll also have to relocate the oil cooler, perhaps to the right side crash bar with GS plumbing.

Could be cool project, though.

That will convert the bike to a sport/café riding position. If that's what you want the go for it. I happen to like the Mystic ergos, especially the handlebars-unique to the Mystic. But it's not my bike.

the stock handlebars will NOT work, those avon fairings require either clubman bars or clip-ons to avoid hitting the fairing when turning.
Very cool looking fairings though, and I'd love to have one.

It looks shit on that R90.

It'll look even more shit on a Mystic.

I think you're catching on! The National Cycle screen on my bike is functional at best. The Avon is much too sexy for the clumsy styling of the Mystik. A coupla years ago Max Stratton asked me , "where have all the mystics gone?.."
He hadn't seen one since "they were racing them.."
I'd be really interested in seeing some pics of a racing Mystic!! I wonder what screen they put on them?

Why would they race a Mystic? Weren't the older R100S and RS notably faster? The Mystic is pretty bare bones with 32mm Bings. More than enough to putter around on, but I never thought they were racing material...

Anyhow, haters be damned! I think the Mystic looks great! Y'know... for an Airhead...
