    Um, I'm not sure if this'll work, (first post) but - I had aluminum Krausers on my R90/6. It was not a happy union. The short version is that they were brittle, (a turn signal snapped off with hardly any provocation, G&!# it!) and those forward locating struts didn't fit well and are allegedly prone to fatigue cracking. I chopped it up and recycled it several years ago. Muy unhappy. But that was me. I have the steel tube mounts now, at least you can bend and weld those. That's my cent and a half. Sharp bike, I like the slotted rotors.

    Okay, I have to have one bike, I'd like to get ahold of something a little more dirt friendly. This thing would be fun to pretty up and tour with, but I can't do either of those things too well right now.

    Thread about it here. Made in December of 1972, matching numbers, LWB. Haven't checked the tank to see if it's got the MC recess but it's got the adhesive type roundels. Located in Cookeville, TN.

    Good:
    56k miles
    Avonaire fairing
    Wixom luggage
    Runs nicely, shifts typical
    at least 90% tread left on tires (Bridgestones I think?)
    Brakes well
    Rides smooth
    Pretty great candidate for a refresh

    Not as good:
    needs a pushrod seal
    A /6 seat, or at least the cover
    One bent seat hinge
    No seat lock
    Signals are from a UJM
    passing light doesn't seem to work
    Black plate Bings
    Right side muffler rusted out at the bottom of the tip
    Denting in top of tank from barbacks
    some surface rust on things
    Needs fork oil

    Not 100% about typical prices but I'm going to ask $2500 for now. I'd like to see it go to someone who can love it and appreciate it, so I may not put this in the big FM. I'm very open to trades for a decent DS bike, something not too big.

    EDIT: It's, uh, a R75/5 by the way. Could deliver within +/- 100 miles.

    I have a set of Krauser bags and the rack from a 1982 R65. I'm not sure what bikes this rack fits but it looks to be somewhat universal. It was fully mounted on the bike when I bought it so I'm pretty sure everything is there, it even has the special rear turn signals that bolt to the rack.

    The bags are in great shape. The rack is straight and true (surprisingly light too) but it does have some paint coming off.

    Unfortunately, I do not have keys for the bags.

    I'm not sure what shipping would cost, depends on where you're located and I'm in DC. So please take than into consideration if you'd like to make an offer. I'd like to sell it all as a set.

    I added the "part numbers" I could find on the rack.

    Left Rack - 141.7632
    Right Rack - 141.7631
    Top Rack - 7636

    mrbindc, Where are you located? I would love to purchase the rack and bags from you but don't know if they will fit my '75 R60/6. Do you have any kind of part # or anything I could cross reference? Thanks

    I'm looking for a gas tank for my 77 R100RS. It must be an original type in excellent condition....no rust, corrosion, or dents. The color doesn't matter. PM with what you've got.
