Have you always wanted a R90S but couldn’t stomach dropping serious money on one? Or have you always wanted an R90S to really ride and tour on, not one to polish and only pull out when the weather is right? Then this may be the R90S for you.

Though mostly original, this Daytona Orange R90 has been well maintained all its life, and its odometer shows 87,704 miles, just as it should. It’s had three caring owners, and, as the auction states, though it’s in very nice appearance, it has “always been appreciated as a riding machine.” And to that end, it wears a host of improvements and upgrades to make it a better performer, including dual-plug heads, a lightened and balanced flywheel, a Dyna electronic ignition, unleaded valves and seats, a new battery, and an overhauled transmission, clutch and driveshaft.

The starting bid appears to be at $3,500, and though we don’t know what the reserve is, we’re betting this will go for a reasonable price and will make its new owner very happy.
