The photos do not really convey the "patina" on this 900SS Bevel. But it's all there, waiting for the oily rag. MikeV

That one's in better shape than the one that was written up in the current Motorcycle Classics.

Exactly what I was thinking about when I saw this bike Bill. Here was another bike he brought; might be of special interest to you. MikeV

THAT.....SS.....IS......AWESOME! I love bikes that have been well used. Like a nice comfortable and broken in pair of boots.

Well, the former owner certainly had good taste, but they look like they were left in only a carport for 35 years. What's the story on them? Is the R90 really low mileage? Those look like original tires, and the inside of the muffler doesn't even look black!!

He, Tom, is a tire supplier/installer and misc tools seller at track and race days. Someone said he is a local legend for his collection of unrestored bikes. I did not ask about the Beemer. MikeV
