Hello,

I just picked up two R11's barn finds.
Most likely an early series I and a series II
Anyone out there have some spare parts?

Hi,

Super cool find - I'd love an R11. What are your plans?

Survivors

These are great, and rare survivors. I would suggest that you resist the temptation to do a complete restoration and instead consider a mechanical restoration. Leave the patina intact. They will be more valuable as running, original paint bikes.

That may be the case with bikes other than these. Judging from the pictures these bikes have gone beyond the trendy , desirable "patinated" stage. A fantastic find none the less. Congratulations.
