If you've already got the cylinders, I wouldn't think it would be all that hard to mount them on a face-plate and turn them down to suit your engine case. The real time would probably be changing the chuck to a face-plate then indicating each cylinder. The actual turning wouldn't be much time at all. You would probably have to do the de-burring and blow out the stud holes.

R60--> r75

Disston,

Since I've already read a few threads on here about it I didn't want to bore everyone with a new one about this type of conversion.

I am definitely aware of the different cam profile but I've heard mixed responses in terms of whether or not it is fruitless to just swap top ends. I'm now under the impression that you will end up with a bike that is R75 "ish" if you just the top swap and leave the original camshaft. At this point I'm willing to be a guinea pig and find out. I could always swap the cam after the heads if necessary or at worst go back to the old r60 top...

So, anyone have some parts?

Rear hub

I'm in desperate need of a rear hub that will fit a '74 R60, mine kinda shattered alot while I was replacing the bearings. Stupid hammer, I blame it for my misfortune.

My father-in-law's 78 r100rs 'Belgian Police':

http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/3781809066.html

It's currently in my garage, and available for show/test rides on weekends and afternoons with cash in hand and M endorsement.

I've personally been riding her to work (30mi round trip) about once a week over the past 2months and she rides great. I've taken her on some longer rides here and there to see how she performs on the highway, and to get a better feel for Airheads since I was in the market for one myself. She rides amazingly, and really just needs a little cosmetic TLC to make her perfect.

My father-in-law can be contacted via the info he listed in the ad, or feel free to contact me directly through the forum. Happy to help facilitate! Thanks.

Look back one page. I think Plaka had a half way nice pair for not too much money too. Don't remember them being grabbed up yet. Maybe. These go for twice what he is asking, really.

I think I have a set of new repro bar end signals on the shelf in the hop. I'll have a look when I get home tomorrow.

Got it. Thx. I meant I've got a couple good pairs of the hella signals. No extra covers in my stash of parts.
