    The R-37 fully restored

    Here is what the R-37 looks like today. I talked about it a few years back when I first saw it at Eastside Motosports in Bellevue Washington.

    Very nice. Do you have a picture of it when you first starting to work on it?

    I always wondered where people find these bikes, on the other hand, if you have to ask how much it cost to restore, you probably can't afford it.

    You definitely can't afford an R37. I haven't seen one auctioned in a long time, but it would have to get a solid six figures, especially since R32s are getting $125k and they're as common as dandelions compared to an R37.
