Please identify this bike that evidently my Dad had. I never saw this and only a few in the family new about it????????

Dad is long gone, he must have had a secret life, eh. :D too bad I would have liked to have joined in. :action:

That is either a 75 or a 76. Both came in Candy Antares Red. The 77 came in red but it has a different contoured seat. Just when you thought you knew everything about your dad he slips one in on you. Great find.

Many thanks for the reply Tom. Well, Dad did his thing and we all did ours with starting two businesses back then. Sure wish this could be turned into the real thing.

Maybe Steve Jobs could make this an iBike issue. :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

Square horns and massive floorboards. I wonder what the shifter mech looks like on that one (other side).

I'd say a 75 I just repainted and decals. the pin stipe near the bottem of the faux tank is the 75 , the 76 has a different striping.

Thoselook likeKrauser bags. They were German made and were offered by BMW as an option. They are just big suitcases and detach from the bike with a push of a button. I had a set on my Norton. Now they are on my GS850. They were awesome. When you pulled up to the Motel you just clicked and walked inside while everybody else started to unload their bikes.

Sounds from the first post, the bike's whereabouts are unknown....

Many thanks for all your comments guys. The pictures turned up unexpectedly, do you think the bike will too?????????

Getting the magnifying glass out so-to-speak the comments of custom paint go along with the boards and other additional items. I think Dad picked this up used in the Sarasota area and "made a deal with the PO to store it there for his own use, don't-you-know".

DNA is funny stuff, I know now where my Mystery Trips come from.:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

My wife sort of nickered, when do the other brothers and sisters come in??????? Now that's enough of that stuff.

Have a great weekend.

Ned ,you might find one of the older fellows at Hap's who might recall the bike and your dad .

I dont know if Hap's family still owns the dealership there . I used to race with his boys .

That's down the road one or two exits south of FT. Myers. You know, cats stray, but not too far from the barn.:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

Sounds like you need a factory manual, probably still available on EBay or such. Wonder if Pete has info on your bike.
