Add two more, a Bumblebee (bzzzzz) and a turquoise R100R with a big BOXER decal across the tank. One day I'll get some photos.

Thank you. When I bought the bike in '86, I wanted a proper black one. However, the dealer offered me $200 off to take Azore Blue, so I bought it. When it came time to repaint it, largely because the tank needed a little welding around the petcocks, I thought for sure I would just paint it black. But the blue had grown on me over the years, so we went for the two tone.

It still runs like a champ, all 39 horsepower of it. I've also had an R1150RT, an R1100S, and an S1000RR - they have all gone, but the R65 looks like it will be with me for a long time.

I think it's awesome but you realize that, in the eyes of the purists, you have committed sacrilege.....

Hey, don't underrate your bike. It has 48 horsepower! Beautiful job! thumbsup

This is the winter for my little bare 1975 R90/6 with the small fuel tank & low compression gaskets for annual attention & general rebuild. Bought it new & is still original as much as possible. Runs like a steam engine.

It seemed so big after the '69 Honda 350!

I didn't know airheads went here under Non R bikes.....

When I first found this forum, I asked why no airheads. And I was pointed to this non-R bike sub-forum. My airhead IS and R bike - but since it ain't one of the newer models, we get relegated to this non-R bike place. But at least it's a place!
