That's a sweet stash. Those long stem mirrors, if they're original, are hen's teeth. Hen's teeth!

For how much money? When you buy something it's a combination of what you get and what it costs that makes it a deal or not. if money is no object, just buy them all.

That is one classic beauty. The right color and condition.

I am looking forward to seeing it in person--and even getting my mitts on it to do some minor fix-ups.

Lucky Dog.

o if a guy got this bike where would he find a set of cool hard bags and mounts for it? I love the way the Wixom bags look, but are the bmw bags better for actually holding stuff?

http://www.ibmwr.org/market/ is a good place to start, or right here on our flea market. Ebay, local airhead clubs, etc.


As far as which is best, beauty is in the eye of the bagholder.

Will ya buy the bike? You're killing us with suspense here!

Wixoms are great bags. Oddbawl loaned me his Wixoms for my Cross Canada R50/5 ride and I'm amazed what they survived. Hundreds of miles of pounding ungraded pot hole strewn logging roads. They just ate it up.

I've used BMW Krausers enough to know the BMW mounts would have been fractured for sure in similar usage.



Cravens make great bags, too. And, like Wixoms, "period correct".
