    You just have to order more parts than the one part you want. There are other things you need, will need. Maintenance items maybe.

    I would also try Bob's because I know he has an after market part. maybe it's cheaper. I don't really think it is but it might be.

    Have you tried Hans (bmwhucky.com)? He is incredibly fair and accurate on shipping. I'm sure he'd be willing to drop it into an envelope if thats what you wanted. Most of my shipping costs for parts from him are under 10$ (for boxes).

    You have to wait for your check to get there first, but its worth it.

    Wow! I think I paid only $3 or $4 for mine less than three years ago - from the dealer.

    Money well spent. Now when Gold Wing riders show off their cruise control by doing the wave with their right hands, I wave back with my right hand too. :lol3

    If I ride in Rolling Thunder on Memorial Day in Washington, DC I salute the Marine on Memorial Bridge with my right hand. Always have but I don't ride in this event every year. Now I understand they have made it legal for Vets to salute for special circumstances. Never knew it wasn't legal. I guess it's nice of them to make this legal but if they hadn't I don't think I would have stopped doing it.

    I was under the impression you weren't supposed to salute unless you were in uniform?

    No, don't erase it. Why? It's your history, your part of the story, and I'm glad to know it. Just like I'm glad I know my dad's WWII stories and my grandfathers' WWI stories and the story I heard just last weekend from my country neighbor who was a radioman in Vietnam who now goes back and works underground in the ministry. I agree with some of it, some I don't, but I like hearing all of it. I came here because I'm a motorcyclist, but I keep coming back because of the stories.

    Yep, don't erase it - a little thread drift is fine with me. Keeps this place real and the Inmates real.

    And thanks for your service.

    A brand new Fehling euro low bar, $60 shipped within usa.

    A brand new Rizoma black 22mm handle bar. It looks like these. It seems to be 22mm despite the the website claiming it being 7/8". $70 shipped within usa.

    Also, I have various bits related to headlight, instrument and front turning lights from a 92 R100R. Photos can be found here.

    headlight mounting bracket,
    turning lights and mounting pieces,
    tach
    speedo (SOLD)
    speedo drive cable,
    instrument cups (SOLD),
    a pair of mirrors
    instrument indicator panel.
    two side stands from unknown airhead.

    PM me if you are looking for some particular bit in that area. I'm keeping the headlight though.

    Anyone want free R75/5/6/7 / R65 1978-80 piston rings?

    I bought these rings from Motobins for my R75/5. Later, I ended up Nikasil plating the barrels. This set has a chrome compression ring, which won't work for Nikasil barrels. They were installed on the pistons and inserted into the barrels, but never saw actual use. They were put on and taken off with a piston ring expander.

    I will toss these in a small priority mail flat rate box and ship them to whoever wants them. You pay the cost of shipping ($5.35). They're motobins part no 50370.

    Then you got them. PM me your address, and a short affidavit indicating you have accepted Christ as your personal savior.

    Just kidding. Address only.

    In need of this piece. It actuates the plunger/piston on the rear MC. If someone could help me out with this I'll save a ton `o cash. The only way to acquire this part is to purchase the entire MC from the dealership. A $200.00 hit!

    Ideally it should come with the pivot pin and clips. Bike in question is a 79 R100 RS. Thanks.
