My conversion is a 1969 R69S purchased about 5 years ago from Peter Gruner in VA and came with:

’75 R90/6 engine, ’74 trans, 32/10 ratio (3.20) then July 2020 37/11 (3.36, for sidecar) rear drive, custom driveshaft, /5 headlight bucket, Heinrich tank, Wixom fairing & bags.

I have added dual discs the same size as a GSXR 750/1000 fitted to /6 front hubs custom cut down to allow for fitment of wire wheels, aluminum wheels, R90S engine emblems (not pictured), R80G/S oil pan & bash plate (just for fun), brake m/c from ’88 RS/RT, air horn, sidecar springs and new dampers.

Once I figure out how to resize the pictures I have of my conversion I will post them :-)
This site says my pictures are too large.

Can't wait to see the pics... :D

If you need to resize pictures, there are several free SW that will make it for you, but the simplest solution is to email you the pics: those will be automatically resized or the option to reduce the size will be given to you.

You should be able to rent an automotive engine hoist for a few bucks a day. At my age (73) I have learned to let equipment do the heavy lifting. It reduces the potential for damage to both the equipment and my body.
