Cheep r100



Got er for 700.00 at a swap meet. Well under 1,500.00 after replacing almost every seal, heads, tires and bearings. A before pic, looks about the same now and a pic of the mock-up of the new front end to be installed soon. I'll get an after shot next week.

I don't know... That mirror looks un-fixable. Tell you what- make sure it runs for me, I'll fly out there and ride it home so you don't have to worry about dumping any more money into it.
