    I purchased this one owner R75/6 this fall from an elderly gentleman that unfortunately had to stop riding because of poor health. He is of German decent and laughed when he gave me the shop manual and I discovered that it was competely in German. I have been riding an F650GS (that sounds like a generator) for a few years and a KLR before that and wanted something different and classic. It rides and sounds like a motorcycle should. I would have posted images here but don't know how. (now I do thanks to Greg)

    Nice work - I especially like the treatment you've given the pipes. To me the pipes are the SL350 and so few straight ones survive. Most of the replacements don't do the original look justice, but you've chosen a real nice look with those.

    :clapvery nice. When I started shopping for my first motorcycle I looked at an XS in very good shape for $500. I didn't know what I was looking at so I left it in the guys garage. :poserI'm still kicking myself every time I see a nice one like this.

    Thank you! I bought this back in '07 for $800 and have done a fair amount of upgrades while trying to maintain a stock appearance. I'll tell people it's like me: old & slow but still not bad looking for an old fart. :rofl
