/7 seat is serviceable. Negatives: a teensy-weensy 1/4" tear under the right buttcheek not even through the fabric backing. Some of the bottom edge trim is gone. The BMW logo on the back has faded away.

Positives: Full-size chrome grab handle, foam is in very good shape, has the cool tool kit mailbox-hidey-spot and little plastic tray underneath for registration/insurance. It's not busted or cracked or nasty or any of that nonsense.

What I'm hoping for is somebody in the exact opposite of my predicament, with an odd-fitting (or not fitting at all) LWB /5 or /6 seat on their later bike. Or, if you have a seat but don't need mine, I've got what might be interesting trade bait from a parted-out (block and crank gone, so I assume seized up) '76 750 engine.

Hit me up, yo.

Wanted: RT Crash Bars, BMW heated grips, Steering head wrench, /5 Fork cap tool

I'd like to purchase a set of crash bars for my 1981 R100 RT. I am also interested in acquiring a set of BMW heated grips for the bike, I have a switch already, but any available wiring would be helpful.

I also need a steering head wrench to round out my RT's tool kit, and the two pin fork cap removal tool for my /5.

Please let me know if you've got anything!

Bluhduh Looking for rear airhead "snowflake" drum brake wheel

Ok so.....

After inspecting the wobbly wheel on my newly purchased 1978 R100/7, I find that the steel sleeve holding the bearings is trashed and the wheel is useless.

So I am looking for a snowflake rear wheel off of a 1974-1982 airhead WITH DRUM BRAKE. Everyone and their mother has the rear wheel for a disk but I am having a hard time finding a replacement wheel with drum.

Looks like this......

Ehpron, the snowflakes have a steel sleeve holding the bearing races. Unless the race is loose in the hub, your wheel just needs new bearings...

From my understanding the sleeve has worn into the actual wheel hub, though I need to take a look at it when I get back into town, already tried having a reputable mechanic change the bearings and that was his feedback. Will follow up...

Offered here is my 1989 BMW R100GS. Currently at 876XX miles, running well. Many upgrades including Omega charging system, CC fork brace, Oil cooler relocation kit, Touratech racks for Zega Bags (Bags not included).
Bike needs a few things, Front tire, pushrod tube seals leak a bit, rear seal on trans has a slight leak , center stud on left valve cover stripped, muffler has a hole by rear mount (sounds great), and is cracked at front mount (I moved the clamp). Tach works intermittently.
With a little love this fine machine will continue to put a smile on the owners face adventuring into the future with elegant simplicity and reliability.
The bike can be seen weekends in Lloyd Neck, N.Y. or in and around NYC. Offered at $3950.
