Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

Thanks...I'm familiar with Phil Hawksley's site. As far as I know, for any bike before 1970, not even the year of production is provided, just a range of years as you suggest. The link says "first registered in Norway" and there's the possibility that it could have been registered somewhere else bef...

Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

Just curious...where did this info come from:
frame no for an R60/2, first registered Aug. 10th, 1968
Is it off some paperwork that goes with the bike or did it come from some internet search? Is there a build date to go with that? What is the VIN number?

Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

Hmmm...a '68 means that it's a /2 of some variety. Any other pictures? The engine VIN should be on the right side above the cylinder. Sure would be nice to know the VIN...this could be an orphan engine that could match to a frame that's out there.

Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

What year is it? The 1981-1984 bikes are hard on valves and valve seats. Adding a sidecar and the associated demands only make the situation worse. It's not a killer issue but it's something that needs to be factored in.

Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

You'll need a new front end...that bike has a true leading link suspension and that would need to be replaced before solo use. Sidecar use can be hard on a bike too...to include the transmission as well as increased heating on the right side cylinder due to the unusual air flow.

Re: Hello new to airheads.

No "bean can" on the /7...just points/advance unit out in the open in the cavity at the bottom of the cover. If water got in there, could be the seal around the opening is damaged. Not sure what the Accel product is...Dyna makes a points booster which is designed to prolong the life of the point. Ku...

Re: 79' Rs rear disc brake

Generally, any rear brake is going to be of limited use due to weight transfer. You say you have good pedal, but have you been successful bleeding the rear caliper? I understand that it has to be removed and rotated so the bleed nipple is at the high point. If you've done that, then stand by for mo'...

Re: Spline Lube on Paralever

From Snowbum's site:

15K to 20K:
Monolever & Paralever bikes should have the output shaft & splines, & any U-joints checked.

Does this cover the paralevers?

Re: Handelbars.

K75S or possible C bars seem to be the option. A bit more rise and still fits inside the fairing. Some have reported no change needed in cables while others say they have. You'd have to see for yourself.
