Post-Listing Update: This Hot Rod was relisted a few times before finally being pulled off eBay. The highest bidding ever got to was $15,500.
Based on a R69S chassis, this interesting custom has the engine from a ’73 R75/5 that’s received a Siebenrock Big Bore Kit.
The seller bought the bike in 2010 and then went about rebuilding it mechanically while trying to preserve the vintage look. All his work was detailed here in his blog.
Goodies besides the big bore kit include Dell’orto carbs, Paul Dunstall silencers, and a very rare Sig Serson cam. It also has Uli electronic ignition, the clutch from a R90S, and beautiful fiberglass luggage. It’s truly an interesting blend of newer power wrapped in old style.
