    Looking for a shop in the SF Bay Area that sells Castrol "R" Castor Bean Oil.

    Thank you.

    I use to run Castrol R in my Royal Enfield back in the 60s. Was looking to get an old RE and restore it using Castrol R in it. Love the smell plus it keeps the Lower Bushing in the rod from coming apart. I will look into the Series Caster and see if I can use that.

    Thank you.

    A blast from the past. I used to mix that for my two strokes. A good oil with a very distinctive smell.

    Yes, with a name like my link above, I figured you ran that castor oil"Maxima927". I haven't seen the Castrol "R" in years. To be honest, not sure if they still make it. OP, maybe check with Castrol to see if it is still manufactured?
