Obviously part of the language barrier pom (limey) / yank ...

The sole purpose of the cute kid would be to act as a decoy to snare the kindie teacher.

As soon as the snare was sprung the brat would be returned to the parents, regardless of whether they wanted it back or not ... hope that clarifies the comment/situation ...

I am guilty of using my daughters as chick magnets ( but hey when you are a 24/7 sole parent you need all the help you can get ) ... It did take me awhile to train my youngest to look for wedding rings ....

Very pretty indeed!


Might I implore you for a couple closeups of some details? Left front brake, left petcock, left swingarm bearing cap and if you have one, backbone w/ tank off showing wire routing on the dual plug setup.

Thanks!!


PS, if you ever come across some, check out the /5 non-reflector turn signal pods. Also check out the early 100RS wheels w/ the blue pinstripe on the rim.

Consider rotating the rear brake arm a toot or two so the lever is at right angles to the actuating rod with the brake off. Ideally, it is just at 90 Degrees as the brake pads first touch down. I filed the parting lines off my aluminum levers and polished them out---just on the outside where it shows. Rear brake, Shift and Rear brake arm. This took surprisingly little time. <1/2 hr. ea. Then polished on a buff wheel in my grinder. I don't know if I'll be keeping them polished but it sure looks cleaner without the ragged lines. You have the kinda ride that invites people to look close...

Jaw dropping ... Was talking to Ray last week ... he said he had finished up a special project ... I am pretty sure he doesn't have any extra tanks like that sitting around .

I have an original 1977 Spoke wheel R100RS in my collection I will be restoring the blue pinstripe spoke wheels on this bike in the next few months.

This project bike started life as a 1981 R100/7 T, it is fitted with /6 wheels with new wider rims and Stainless Steel spokes, due to the lack of rear clearance a set of F800 front brakes were fitted over Mono Series brake disks (modified from 4 bolt to 5). A mono series wiring loom is fitted along with new later model switchgear.

So if you went with a Mono harness .. did you up grade all the electrics to a mono ???

Also with dual plugging .. did Ray go with one of these

I think you need your own build tread on this beauty .

We installed one of my own dual Hall Effect trigger Full Electronic Advance Red Centre Ignition system, a 450 watt alternator, Heavy Duty Diode Board, High Output voltage regulator.and Nippondenso Starter motor.

Yes those are the coils Ray Peake used.

As soon as I saw the page come up with that big beautiful blue tank my immediate thought was that this bike was in Australia, then as I glance over to see where the guy is from it hits me that I am correct. Nice to be learning something here as i do waste LOTS of time here, and by the way the bike looks great, beautiful and memorable airhead!

the craziness that took hold a few years back, after around 100k miles in smoke grey decided a little color could be fun... added the homebuilt tail section and solo-seat..
