Here is a before shot, 1983 RGS1000. It has about 17000 km.

This is after I cleaned it up and put it back together. It sat for about 15 years before I got it. It has its original patina.

My 1997 916. It's near 960cc due to the 900SS crank and overbored cylinders with Carillo rods. I bought it from a co-worker who built it as a race bike.
