Looks like you have your work cut out for you but being an R90-S it will be worth it.



What are your plans for it? One of my favorite bikes was a 75 R90/6 that I bought wrecked for $300. The guy swore that it was un-rideable on the phone but when I went to pick it up all it needed was a turn signal and a little paint. Rode it 50k miles and sold it for $1200 with the tranmission acting up. I wish I could find another old boxer for reasonable money to use as a tug for my sidecar.

Thumb Buyer list?

OK, I have to know, how do I get on your bike buyer list?!

I haven't seen so many neat project bikes in one album since the estate sale of two barns full of "ran when parked" classics some years back.

Do you have a website?

My father rode a '49 Matchless G80 and I would love to build one just like his.
I would love to restore an AJS, Matchless, or Goldstar single.

I have wanted to build a Matchless Metisse for 35 years but was unable to ever find an engine.
So now I am building a Triumph TR6C Rickman Metisse and I am looking for a BSA B50 rear hub/brake.
Happen to have one?
