My R90 Project is coming along nicely...

The motor is back in the frame and reassembly has officially begun. Clutch assembly is in and the transmission will be mated one day this week after work.















This is what it looked like on purchase...

Good luck with the project! I've always had my eye on that model - what year? Was the furry pillion extra$$?

74 - one owner who died and left it to his son (bird hunting buddy) who then sold it to me. Purchase was contingent on me completely refurbishing to new condition.

The brown hairy thing on the back was unique to that year.

Nice add-on, as long as it doesn't leave a "seat steamer."

you paint the frame or powder coat it?


I am wickedly jealous of your being able to work on the bike on your back porch, very cool.

Make sure you are tapping on the bearing race, as opposed to a lip inside the headtube. Sometimes if a tapered bearing type of race, is in a place that does not let your punch reach it squarely, you can make or bend a punch for better results. The punch should be flat and sharp, rounded punches do not work well. For one that is truely stuck, you can use a dremel with a sanding disk to barely slice through the race, and it will fall out easily. A brass punch is usually too soft to get the stubborn ones to move, the punch deforms or breaks away before race can move. A large dia steel punch with a freshly ground tip surface, and a large hammer will get most of them out. You will not be reusing the races anyway.
