    I guess I get to sign in here as well. Could someone please explain to me how to kick start the bike? Is it ignition on and then push it down, or is there more to it? Vin 6286638

    Solo, by the way. you were the one that first alerted me, R80G/S was the bike for RTW duties.
    looks like I'm #5 right after yours for now ... pretty early bike

    stamped on frame.. #2141 R80 G/S ... production date 12/80 ... a bit confused on when production started for G/S some say June 80 other say Sept 80???

    history of mine is ... PO paid for frame off restoration, then ended up not riding G/S (rings are not broken in yet). He purchased from original owner who installed factory PD kit. appears I'm the third owner.

    amazing amount of detail went into this restoration!

    My 1986....#7762. In Québec. Just received new fork springs, timing-chain kit....still have to install them. Will need a new rear shock... And after I decide she deserves it, a single-seat! (cause that Corbin is...ugly).

    30 years with the same bike? Nice. How many miles?

    Looking at these pics makes me want to take mine out for a ride, except I don't know when the snow's going to melt.

    not meaning to be offensive but this thread pertains to G/S's not GS's or even Vstroms (or whatever that is).

    thx

    I'll be mr Obvious and state: that is an 80ST not a 80G/S (the ST is kinda the street-oriented version of the G/S). It is hard to tell from the description and images, but at that price in our market that would be a very good deal.
    A very sweet bike by most accounts.
    Buy it!:deal

    "...or whatever that is"...That is a bike that will last twice as long as yours and NEVER be in the shop because of broken final drives, fuel pumps, etc etc. What it is, is the most dependable motorcycle ever made at $8K brand new.
