We'll I've sent my transmission off to get rebuilt and it looks like it's in pretty bad shape! It is rebuildable, but it might be better to try and seek one that's already in decent shape for cheaper.

So if anyone out there has one or knows of someone who may let me know. This bike is going to be a clean driver not a show piece so perfection isn't needed but functionality is.

Thanks,

Jay

Looks like $1500-$2000

Looks like $1500-$2000 because it's in poor shape and needs shift dogs and forks and... He said this is the worst he's seen (lucky me).

Also said bad is usually around $1100 and normal ones are $550-$600.

thank you. i have recently purchased a 1968 r60us. and as far as i know it is in nutral, yet when i get compression on the kick starter it learches foreward, like it is still in gear... any thought? or experience with such a problem?

i havnt had much time with the bike to explore the problem it is still at the previouse owners house.

It was my dad's, he passed away. It's in pretty decent shape except the transmission.

1955 R67/3

My tranny popped out of first gear going down a steep hill.

Todd Rasmussen is fixing it.

The '55 R67/3 is a wonderful ride.
