I have no idea but imagine about the same as a F650 or something like that.
i be surprise if they are less than 380 pounds,,the frames still heavy and the engines for sure are not feathers,I still find the simple lines very atractive,is just nothing to them and that to me is very cool and very inspiring

I like the idea of having a dirt bike that is this unique, but one that I feel confident wrenching on myself. I'm definitely getting some evil thoughts from this thread...

tell me about
looks like something anybody can do on a piece of his garage taking his time working on weekends,look at it as a Model airplane that you can actually ride.

I'm pretty sure after all the reinforments, stiffners and supension work they will work far better in the dirt.

I also think the reliability is a great asset on this engines,after the typical Universal joings are taking care and the electrics improve(if you need lights) the thing will run for ever.

Nice photos.

Is it just me or do these older bikes 'look' like they're built to last longer than today's model's?

I'd love to get my hands on an 80GS.

not only that,but most of the parts are interchangable with other models and years.

basically for what I understand you can build a R80G/S out of any other R80 just by changing forks,tank and wheels,,,etc
since they are base on Exactlly the platform

the oilhead is not that far from it,the GS and the R are pretty much the same bike(chassis) and the RT/RS are not that far away

As for the hpn 4V bike. I sat on one.
It's tall, long, heavy. it's awfull, but it doesn't matter. This is the coolest bike
in the universe. Never again shall exist a motorcycle even remotely this cool.
You'll forgive it anything, except it's price (€ 90.000,-).

White frame

Another good reason for a white frame is so you can see cracks easier. Afterall, these bikes are designed to be beat to hell, and cracking is a real concern.

Nice brake on that bike. What is it? I need to replace my MAP brake on my G/S.

Here are some pics of what I made up last year:

A better lighter moustrap

Still using stock rotor, 4 piston Brembo and bracket with Ti mount screws weighs less than stock. Stops beautifully, not overly sensitive.
A later 4 piston Brembo from a 916 on Ducati would be even better. There are two bolt centre spacings on them. Buy a left for the right side and vice versa.
This one is from Ducati Paso - cost me $40 on ebay, Ti fasteners $40, stainless braided plastic covered brake line $40. Alloy bracket made myself, mostly by hand, one milling cut to the rear. Alloy fork brace home grown too - keeps the better brake in line without fork twist.

Man, the R80G/S is just a beautiful machine. If I had one, I'd have to think really hard about partin' with it.
