people, those are GREAT bikes - these bikes "are bikes NOT to be sold" except maybe in auctions

Another modified R80G/S

Here's mine.. (apologize as pic's been on Advrider before). I like the 2" extension and longer drive shaft on the one you showed Ricky. Mine is still the short stock- which makes it very maneuverable offroad but almost too hot on the road where it likes to fall into turns and has to be positively arrested. I'm curious who did the work. The oversized front disk looks like Jim Rowley's (M.A.P. engineering) work. He's the one who built this bike. I'm still trying to get smart on all the airhead maintenance skills, not to mention the other unique items on this bike (Showa inverted forks, et al).

My son enjoying the bike...


This is the bike I'd like to put your Ricky bars on and I remember you had clamps for the R80G/S (1 set left?). Unfortunately I'm not sure the triple clamp is stock and don't have other R80G/S's to compare it to. Need to make sure before I order.

Will try to post some better/current pics if I get a chance today... Unfortunately, I have to go to work now

the spacer, though simple, is not an ideal solution for extending the
monolever. the monolever is not a straight tube. it's partly bent so
there's room for the tire. extend it in the wrong place and you have
trouble fitting a wide tire. (use one with less width or cut off the nobbly
parts - ouch)

wild man you have it much easier
figure out exactlly the kind of forks you have on the bike(ask Jim maybe) and get a Protaper upper triple clamp kit,they are really nice and very adjustable(in a good way) and then mount the protapers on top..
