    The fairing looks like a Wixom Ranger, the bags are also Wixom.

    And the embellishments on the tank are probably good for another 10mph...

    Beautiful Silver Smoke 1976 R90S located in North Charleston, SC.
    I bought this about a year ago to see if I could pass on my love of vintage motorcycles to my two boys. We've been able to share changing all the fluids, setting the valves, rebuilding and tuning the carbs, but alas...they don't seem that interested. My oldest just joined the military and is away and my youngest is now busy with college. I keep four or five other bikes around to ride so really don't need this one. The bike rides just fine as is and everything works. If I were to keep it, I'd either replace the windscreen or try to buff it out due to some scratches on it. I'd probably try to tune the carbs a little better too. I'm used to doing throttle body adjustments on my RTs, but tuning these older carbs is a bit touchier. Needless to say, it doesn't look like new...it is after all a bike built back in the 1970s. Yes, you can come take a look. To be honest, I'm fine financially so I don't need to sell it so low ball offers will be ignored. I'll be glad to try to answer any questions so long as you call and talk to me. The buyer is responsible for making shipping arrangements. I think the bike came with Krauser bags. If I can find them, I'll throw them in for free. Let me state again, I am glad to answer questions, but only if you talk to me...not a bunch of texting.

    so he bought it a year ago as a fix 'n' flip (backstory is by definition bullshit) and for the price of a cheezeburgur he wants 10 grand. Hmmmmm. Those napoleons stock?

    Isn't $10K the starting price for a 90S? Who knows about the story, but I'd be curious as to why he might not be able find a pair of Krauser bags that might have come with the bike...seems like a large thing to not remember taking off and then to misplace?

    Napoleons weren’t stock just in case your question lacked the sarc tag. I never could get used to them.

    Original except for the tank? He might have stuck those roundels over the screw holes. There’s sumptin about the color though. Doesn’t look quite like monza in the pics, especially on the side covers. Oh, and the seat. Still nice though.

    I would guess he's got a lot of crap in a lot of buildings,... can he remember where he parked his car?

    That seems a little bit, or a bigger bit, high even for Australia.
