    A company from California called Works Performance. I've seen it abbreviated WP sometimes, which is confusing since those are also the initials for White Power - a much better product.

    I don't know if this will be of any help, but I thought I would illustrate the different shocks.

    We all recognize the Ohlins:

    Here's the stock G/S shock next to a recently rebuilt (but far from new) Works shock with the [very] remote reservoir. The white spring is apparently a custom paint job.

    I hope Rosko can chime in on this question. It was his G/S until I adopted it recently--he had the Ohlins rebuilt. I suspect it's to indicate spring top and bottom and the original settings, but this is just a guess. It also has 70N hand written on the spring at the top.

    Hey, I'm not the one to apologize to. I've got the bug worse than most around here. I know it won't be any consolation coming from me, but I sure understand your situation. :lol3

    Here's to a speedy and complete recovery! :wink:

    Here's a couples of pics of my "R80/100g/s/s PD". I bought this from the original owner about 6 years ago with 9200 mls on it. Has about 45k now.

    And last but not least, :eek1 this one in Palermo. I talked to the owners son, he said his father had sent it back to the BMW factory in Germany to be totally rebuilt and had just got it back.

    New to me 1984 R80G/S, #2918. Murky history, about 9,700 miles indicated. One thing is for sure, I need a windscreen. I've seen a few nice medium-sized clear ones in this thread that look like they were actually made for this bike, is there something available?

    Here's the family shot....

    Lovely :thumb

    I hope this means you'll be making racks for G/S's :ear

    BTW, I don't think the non-locking gas-cap tanks were made for more than a year or two. Desireable :deal

    Bike looks cherry...congrats!

    What I'll be doing for the R80G/S and all airhead GS bikes is the Hepco Becker Racks with our Caribou ALS luggage and attach system, works great.

    Here's one of the windscreens I am looking for, what is it?.... Some kind of Slipstream product?

    I took the after market screen of my G/S and it is available. Although I have not priced it, PM me if there is interest.

    Here it is:

    I think this is the National Deflector windscreen. I like that one too but haven't convinced myself yet.

    That is Junkyard's R80. He might be able to let you know what kind of screen that is.

    I've got a very similar Givi (might be a little bigger), but never installed it. It looks good on your bike! Maybe I'll give mine a try sometime.
