    The vin was modified to match an exzisting title for a 1972 R-5, no way I'm going to deal with this issue.The bike is currently registered as an 1972 R-5. If the vin had not been modified I could deal with it.

    just received a set of New Old Stock upper side panels out of the UK in the correct blue/teal/pink:clap My right side panel was badly repaired after a fall over. Waiting for the new rubber /brass insert nuts to arrive so I can install them!

    That's kind of what I thought. I would like to have it, but not that bad.

    That's what, about $500 more than a Chinese Husqvarna Rotax thumper...

    Reconditioning a tired example, adds up quickly.

    Adding the bodywork I have fortunately found and bought and all the other expenses of getting mine here, (along with that bike's stupid low mileage),I think its in the ball park.

    My buddy Dave had one, the black and yellow. Had a Batman sticker on the front fairing. Could have been that one in the Chronicle.
