Changing R65 seat for a R100R mystic

Postby JayP » Sun Jul 30, 2017 9:22 pm

Hi
I've read of someone changing a R100R seat for R100R mystic, but I'm interested in a switch from an '87 R65 monolever.
Is there anyone who know if this is possible?

thank you all.

Sorry it's all about my bad English and some mistakes...
I'd like to mount a rear subframe and seat of a r100mystic on an r65 monolever.

hi
dont worry about the bad English, it will be better than my good Italian

i dont know if this can be done but think it is Possible, do you know about realoem com, you can get Pictures of the frame and compare them

if you search UK ebay there was someone selling a r100r sub-frame a while back and he may still have it,

the back of a 65 tank is the wrong shape for a standard r100 seat but the front of the seat is just a bit of Plastic which could be reshaped

Hi thanks everyone for your help!
I think that by the end of the month I'll ask my mechanic for more detail about this as long as I need to get rid of some engine problem first. Then with a more clear point of view, on my money as well, I'll decide.
The realoem website is extremely useful, thanks
