who built this R100

A guy in Phoenix is selling this bike. It was built by a guy in CA that had moved to OR and then moved to North Carolina.

Has a dual shock under the seat set up. Just trying to find the history to the R100 before pulling the trigger.

Looks like the front and rear wheels were woody's laced.

Interesting

Dual shock under a modified rear subframe. Frame braces. Is it done well?? Looks like a project to finish but if all work was done well may be a very good setup. What year is the bike??

Keep us posted

Thx

It started out as R100RS. He didn't know ..but looking at the amount of wiring it had to be a RS or RT

Just looking at the suspension, it might be a Larryboy build? I think he did something with dual shocks on his CB490.

That shock arrangement is scary.

The battery hold down looks exactly like a belt I used to have.

Yeah I've seen that shock setup on a CB or two. It's interesting, but I don't get the purpose too well.

Not nearly as scary as those subframes welded up out of 1/4" solid tube with no cross members. I am afraid those are going to hurt some people.

It's like a Vincent. That's the only reason I can think of why you would do it that way.

Tubes are hollow.

The only reason I can see was so that the builder could reuse the stock twin shocks that came on the bike.

Wow, kinda scary looking bike.

From a structural standpoint, I definitely don't like the way the rear mount of the shocks look.

Cry Good offer

Yeah 1000 is a good offer.

I would suggest he finish the bike correctly then ask 2500
