Bored in Texas.........

Bike projects on hold for now........Removed the sidecar from the R75/5 last week and put her to bed in the cargo trailer for the time being...hope to get over to Arizona around Thanksgiving for an Airhead gathering at the Salton Sea but work will likely interfere with that plan......We'll definately attend the 3 day Rally at Agua Caliente for New Years....I'll crawl there if necessary!

The R100S is sitting idle for now...I mounted a set of Bates saddle bags on it but don't like the mounting setup ....I have some original Bates brackets which need some welding done on them so I'll repair them and put them to work eventually.At least it is looking like a Motorcycle now....not much left to do to get her running.

Found a used pair of /5 "cigar" mufflers on EBay for $70.00....they are originals with some "patina" dings etc....but I wasn't gonna spend $600.00 for a repro. set....they'll go on the /5.
