I think that's why he advertised it as a 'hub' and not a 'wheel'.

Reynolds ride off center stand part II

Reference my previous ad, I have educated myself, and the center stand I need must fit a monoshock airhead, which will be an 86 or later, as I have an 88 R100RS.
So if you have a Reynolds ride off center stand to fit an 86 or later airhead, and are willing to part with it, please let me know.
Thanks.

I'm looking for some fork tubes, upper stanchions for a 1983 R80ST. Let me know what you have and how much you want for them.

TIA !

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

looking for a transmission for a r100 /7. I blew out an engine for an r80, but have a donor r100. I have heard that the transmission will also need to be replaced because it is not geared correctly.

Is that right?

Year of bike concerned. Year of bike of donor engine. The difference is in the length of the input shaft. It is not a difference in the gears, per say. The difference is dependent on the year and not the model. Year, year, year?

An R100/7 will be a heavy flywheel engine and takes a long input shaft. What year is the R80? Short input shafts start in 1981.

Your R80 transmission will be just fine. They're identical between the two bikes. The difference in gearing is provided by your final drive.

You might want to find a 32/11 or 33/11 final drive to suit the R100 motor.

R80 final drive will be frustratingly short for any type of road use (ie: it'll be revving way too high in most situations).

Hope this helps.

If that is the case you have two short input situations and they match however you called the R100 a /7 and I don't think a /7 was made in '82. If there is a flywheel on the donor engine you can find out what this is and go from there. It may also be possible to swap the flywheel from your blown '83 motor onto the donor engine.

There's numbers on the R100 engine. If the number is directly above the the dip stick hole then enter this number into the proper place at this web site and it will tell you what you have.
