Danke sehr. I've always had a soft spot for the older machines, but the prices are so inflated nowadays that I wouldn't even consider buying another one. I remember back in the 1960's when WR stuff could be found laying in the corner of some guy's garages and you could get a basket job for fifty bucks or less, though in the early 1970's I paid $150 for the complete 51 WR motor which I put in a genuine WR frame that I got in trade for parts. I made a street chopper out of it, so the rest was a combination of WL and XL parts. Unfortunately, the ball bearing motor didn't last long because I took it for long runs out on the open road and a lot of guys on 1200's put me through my paces...and got a surprise..
Unfortunately, I got into a bad financial pinch about ten years ago and was forced to sell it as is. I have a picture of it somewhere, but it was far from stock having a KR-750 upper end and valve train, slightly raked frame, cut fenders, XLCH front end, gas tank, oil tank, dual mufflers, magneto, 12V electrical system, Bates head/tail light, solo seat/pillion pad, B&H footshift, etc.
The worst part about selling it was when I started hearing from strangers that the guy who bought it was telling everyone that *he* had built it..
