As Peter Griffin would say, that bike is freakin' sweet. It's a cafe racer dual sport!

that is one of the nicest bikes I've ever seen.
I guess you are still working on the racks and bag mounts
That is one exquisite piece of work.
Three other red slash sixes showed up for a tech session last year so we put them on the front lawn for a photo shoot.

Nice, I just have a thing for R 90's.
Let's see if I can get a picture of this project bike. I'd say it's about 75% complete. I wish that I had the courage to strip the bike and powder coat the frame. Oh well! The exhaust is stainless and the mufflers are original, but CermaChrome coated. I did the painting (it was originally a nasty red)and hope to get it running a bit better in the Spring.
Thought I would post a pic of the 84 R100 Last Edition that I recently bought. I think its a keeper. It has 6,850 orignal miles on it.
I sold her in 2004 and now ride a '99 R11S...the PD handles way better in the curves but lacks good brakes and passing power.
Notice the twin stacked Osram HID Driving Lights (Xenarc X1010 Kit) where the old square one used to be. I also Dual Plugged w/9.5:1 Pistons, Ohlins on the rear, Progressive Fork Springs, LED Taillight, EBC Brake Disc, Braided Steel Brake Line, SigmaSport Cyclo-Computer, K&N OEM Replacement Filter, Rejeted #140 Mains and dropped needle 1 notch, SuperTrapp 2-into-1 w/8 discs, and WUDO Oil Pan Extension for 3.5 Liters Oil total in the sump...among too many other mods to mention (47 in all).
I miss the cornering fun that always had the sport bikers follow behind a 60 HP two cylinder bike with skinny tires...
Here it is. Hopefully.
Here it is again! The R100 in Thatcher (NYS) Park. Near Albany, NY.
