    My new to me 1973 LWB R75/5. Original condition, numbers matching. Only 2 owners. 42k miles.

    Looking forward to making some areas of the bike a bit refreshed. It’s been neglected, but now has a caretaker who will spoil her.

    ^^ Period tires, too. Does Continental still make those? If so, maybe they've updated the compound?

    That is what I had while living in Denver, Colorado 1981-1985 going to school. Had a full Vetter fairing. I bought it used from a mechanical engineer up near Broomfield. When my wife and I (girlfriend then) went to look at it he had it up on a wooden stage in the garage and it looked as if it had been cleaned with a toothbrush, it was spotless. We rode that machine all over Colorado looking for the rural town we wanted to live and practice in. Ultimately we decided on Montana as the Front Range began to explode out of control. (20/20 hindsite.....BRILLIANT!). That 750 was just plain perfect, trustworthy, bullet proof, excellent mileage....just excellent at all it did. Had kids so sold it to the next lucky fellow. Once every one was grown and paid for went back to cycling with F650 Dakar and a Stelvio Moto Guzzi.

    The 90S -Slash6 range- is over rated AFAIC.
    The Slash7 range is much easier to ride on a daily basis.

    This is my 78 R100S, 256,000 kms on original engine and tranny.
