PROJECT: 76 R75/6 Cafe

I picked up a 1976 R75/6 with a mere 100,000 miles on the ticker at the ‘09 Mid-Ohio Vintage Days. Anyone who’s been to this wonderful event knows that it’s easy to be tempted to bring home a vintage machine or two!

I was hoping to find another airhead cafe project that had a little more oomph than my ‘73 R50/5.

Seeing that this /6 had been spruced up here and there, it was better than a good start.The previous owner did a nice job making a cafe of his own...but I had different plans. A deal was struck and ideas were already piling up.

After following some great build logs here on ADV and using them as a great source of info, i was inspired to share this story. Gotta give thanks to MIOB, bpeckm and Shmerel for posting their in-depth airhead projects that have been very helpful to me so far.

MIOB’s R80:

bpeckm’s 60/6 cafe:

Shmeril’s caffienated airhead:

And now of course I'll be following rkatapt's thread!

more soon...
