I added one more to the stable. 1972 R75/5 SWB.
It came with the following: Boyer ignition, Toaster.Tan triple mount, Epco Stainless Pipes , Hagon Shocks, Corbin, bigger VW coils, Wehrle S.S. regulator, fresh cables and sync., Matchbox headlight relay, and a set of Ortlieb Waterproof saddle bags. For $3250 I'd say I scored!!

Cheers

Re: ..

...? If you are bored,maybe I should show how to install a Bosch 69222 in a K1200RS?

Not exactly direct fit but 25,000 kms test is rather conclusive.

Nice airhead!

Looks like a very tidy old air head, with Boyer electrics. Haven't seen that name in a while.

Hey, I have a pretty cool short barrel bowling ball mortar for sale. Good for maybe 400 yards. Got any pesky neighbors?
