Gryph answer me this, is a man still a man without a rivet gun.  :nono2:I bought a good one and it's over 25+ years old and has it's own spot on my shadow board.

Martin, that's hard to say.  Everyone I know either has one or knows someone who does.

Can't argue that $4.99 isn't worth the investment.

Since it doesn't have a motor or a cutting edge, I consider it a reasonably safe Harbor Freight purchase.  For $4.99 and you add in a 20% off coupon, how can you go wrong?  Even if you only get one rivet before it breaks, you saved the hub cover.

When I got the bike last summer it had the two side cases in excellend shape, along with some riding gear and miscellaneous stuff that I didn't bother to go though at the time.
So today I pulled the two bags out and in one was the following (see photos)

-Rukka one piece rain suit size 46
-Krypto cable lock
-A Hella plug looks like for a heated jacket or similar accessory
-2 extra rain pants and a woman's rain parka
-Safesport blow up item, orange. Not sure what it is
-Helmet and glove liners

The bags are in great shape so time to polish them up and put them back on the bike.

Well, I sold the K100RS today for $3100. I'll probably get flack for not being a true motobricker but that's okay. The goal was to fix up the bike while learning along the way along with a sense of accomplishment and pride. It was so pretty to look at that it was hard to let go.

I would like to find an older R series that needs some work for a good price.
Good way to spend the summer!
