Hi Airhead fans,

Got a great bike here. Original R100 (not a de-faired RS/RT etc).

Bike was re-commissioned about 1000 miles ago after having been off the road for a couple of years. It's been running like a dream ever since. It comes with an original set of hard panniers (pictured).

I ride it regularly, but it definitely needs some love and attention. The things on my to-do list are fork re-seals, oil pan gasket replacement, top end gaskets replacement. There's weeping going on in a few places!

She's a great bike that starts on the button and mileage will continue to go up as I ride her multiple times a week. But predictably, I haven't had the time to invest that I had hoped so I've gone out and bought an R nine T instead. I'll be very sad to lose this classic bike.

This would be a great starting point for a project, or a full restoration if you're in to that.

Not taking offers I'm afraid. This isn't the cheapest Airhead out there, but there aren't many original bikes like this left.
