R100S Sidecar Tug Progress

Came up with an old set of Bates Saddle Bags for $75.00 the other day....I was looking for a set of Wixom Bags but these are larger and a lot heavier built...they came with mounting brackets but might need some modifications before fitting the /5 or /6 frame.....They were locked and came with no key but one key I had fit them perfectly.....

The R100S engine went together last week after a couple of hours work.....was able to fit each ring to the cylinder right within spec. as they were oversize .025mm...had to file each ring separately to for fitment.
heat painted the lower cylinder jugs...I wanted the machine shop to media blast all the old black paint off but they did repainted.

Decided to install pod style air filters. The engine should breath a little better.
The lower sidecar mounting sub frame. The sub frame has a foot peg welded as it requires removal of the existing foot peg.
Looks like a motorcycle again but there is still a lot of work to be done......
