    The Ranger from Texas Sidecars might look good.

    I'm used to older bikes, but I klnow you're going to need a subframe, and I have to wonder what it will be like putting struts up under that body work.

    I have a nice steib S350 (Original 1960?) off of an R69US. If you or anybody else is interested, I was thinking about putting it on ebay for a no reserve, reasonable opening bid. I apologize for posting advice without photos, they are on my laptop, I will add some ASAP. A steib is too old schoo;, perhaps a sputnik would be cool.

    As promised, here is my S350, its a little light for a big R bike like you have. The sputnik might be nicer.

    Thanks everybody for all the interest. I do want to sell this chair and I suppose I should list in flea market to avoid circumventing the spirit of ADV. So, if I don't find a home for the S350 in the next few days, I'll list in flea market here, and Soviet steeds, and internet BMW marketplace, along with detailed photos and an honest description. Thanks agin.

    What does that mean? I emailed you two days ago, and haven't heard anything back.

    Just wondering.....

    I emailed the same day as the original post, but never got a reply. I'm less that 100 miles away from New Orleans on the Mississippi Coast.

    Gentlemen, I have tried to answer all requests for photos and details, I apologize if I missed you guys. There has been more interest than I thought there would be. In addition to here at ADV, please contact me at joseph.trippodo@usmc.mil I've several detailed photos and am asking $2,500.00 I think thats fair for a 40 year old antique chair. although nobody has made me an offer as of 1625hrs CST, monday June16th,2008. The game is afoot.
