Is it a real R90/S?  Good ones worth some proper dollar.  It held the trans-American coast to coast land record for many many years.
If it ain't broke, then I haven't been hitting it hard enough.

Matching frame and Engine. No fairing with it. Might not add a fairing.

So, is this how you bought it?
Yes this is how the machine came. I'm not going to restore. It we'll be more retro then mod at the end.

So a little update on my bike. I added the Motogadget m-unit with a m-lock, cut the fenders added some new mirrors and new led lighting. Now I just have to get it safety but I mostly will need new tires (Metzeler Lasertec)for that to happen.

Looking good - doesn't look like anything you'd be doing would prevent it from being restored.  All it needs is some bodywork and paint to be 'original'.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
