Thanks, Ron. After seeing the vintage display at the Rally on Saturday, I've decided she just gets a really good detailing. I'll leave all the little scars from being ridden just as they are. The only things I'm replacing are the worn peg and shifter rubbers, carb intake boots, grips, and the modern bar end mirrors. It came with an old pair of bar end mirrors which look more correct on the bike.
08 R1200GS aka Stormy.
1989 Honda GB500 aka Ton Up.
I hate deer and love venison
After the first really good ride...
My newest addition, curvy and has big butt
Here is My 1968 R75/2 Police Cruiser Conversion w/ Ural Sidecar...
Original 1968 R60/2 was refitted with 1974 R75/6 engine and transmission - rebuilt with only 1700 on it. Th Ural sidecar was added. Custom Buchanan spoked front wheel with BMW rear hub. Front drum was replaced with Dual disk front Earl fork conversion - Fitted with 2001 Suzuki SV 650 calipers. Electronics were converted to BMW /5 with BMW Magura controls. Big 12V auto battery in the hack trunk. Vintage correct Wixom fairing and travel box. Also vintage correct Enduro saddle bags. This beautiful motorcycle looks, rides and feels great. It's a dream come true to own this.
This is what the original Bike would have looked like - (not mine)
What a cool set up! Where did you find that?
I thought I would try an attempt with my smartphone to post a picture of my 1968 r50/2 with matching numbers and 52k miles before I tear it down for slingers, etc.
So here goes.
This is my 1958 Isetta that I restored from 1997 till 2000 Every nut and bolt came off this car. A new floor and fire wall went in also. The engine was seized but it all came together at the end. I still own this car but it has not been driven in a few years.

A bad day on the C650 GT scooter is better than the best day at work
As a kid I remember many a ride in the Isetta bubble cars. My dad was a mechanic in the US after first immigrating over from Holland. At home, after work, he'd work on all sorts of odd vehicles that the dealers didn't want to touch.
Get trained! The best "performance" upgrade you can get is YOU. Visit msf-usa.org for training info.
A new year requires a new image posted to this thread, no? Taken Jan 1, 2013..
I hope to one day go back with my/2 for a ride before I get too decrepit.
Alice's is about 16 miles from my house. I'm often on the roads around there and it is a common destination for the Sunday Morning Breakfast Club following breakfast. That Jan 1 picture was taken at the bottom of Tunitas Creek road maybe 20 yards from highway 1.
