Re: R100/7 owners opinions please
I had a '78 100/7, a brown one with a color match Vetter fairing. I rode it around town, short hops and some longer tours, 2000-2500 miles. I am a very basic wrench turner. I changed oil and filter and gear oil. Had a friend who would adjust valves and carbs and set points. I finally sold it, not because there was anything wrong with it, but because it was above my simple mechanical capabilities. But if you can do your own valves and points, and most of those who do enjoy it, then own it. I now own a '94 R100rt which I like very much. Reminds me of the /7. Just a little more modern.
