I was curious of the status of your bike, Hopefully it can be restored to its former glory soon.

My current ride (or a reasonable facsimile of):

Had a blue 78 R100/7 in the SF avenues. Put a 100k on it. Best bike I ever had.

Edited for accuracy. (7 not S)

Man, what a lovely bike.
I wish my car was painted that exact color (I realize it’s faded over time). It’s awesome.

Icon though the R most surely is, horizontally opposed engines are for aeroplanes and helicopters, not motorcycles :wink:

has anyone heard the origin story of the badge/logo

reference in the movie ‘finding forrester’
