Well after doing alot of searching I found my bike. I was close to getting a 75/7 but the guy selling decided to never answer his emails and left no phone number in his craigslist ad so I moved on. After some searching in surrounding states I found a 76 R90/6 in Warrensburg IL about a 5 hour drive from my home in Des Moines IA. We called the guy and everything sounded pretty straight forward, he was honest and hid nothing. I made a deal with him and this past Saturday (Dec 3rd) I took off to get it. Ran into some trouble about half way to Warrensburg, we took my fathers truck to pick the bike up and with out warning the transmission went out on it. Had to have the truck towed and then picked up a penske truck and finished the rest of the drive to get it. After arriving and looking the bike over I was pleasantly surprised that it was cleaner then expected from the picture of it on craigslist. Got home late Saturday night and parked it in the garage. Came back Sunday to my fathers house where he has a shop and started taking everything apart. The plan is to strip it down, sandblast the frame and put a new coat of paint on the frame. The bike will be painted wimbledon white with the classic black stripes. The motor is not going to clean up as much as I would like so I am doing the motor / wheels black. It needs new mufflers and a new odometer and a new battery still. Ok enough talking here are some pictures! At the sellers house we pulled it outside to take a good look at it. Loaded up in the Penske truck Unloaded in our shop And the following pictures are what we accomplished Sunday. Were taking everything off the frame, should have the motor/tranny pulled tonight after work. I will be continuing to update this thread with progress pictures.
