Damn. Thats hot. More pictures when you're done with it.
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
production date 12/80 #2141 R80G/S checking in ... PD kit, total frame off refresh
Nice one _cy_ how about a VIN#?
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).

I know....it's a bad picture.
Here is #3331. 35k miles. I've owned it for 7 years this month. Purchased from Orig. owner before he died @ 80yrs. old.
Purchased new in 1982 at Storm's in Grand Prairie, Tx
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.
That's great to see ...
Updated: thanks everyone!
OH, one more thing Purchased New from Psycle Therapy, Columbus Ohio, 5/6/1985.
Heres mine. Atleast thats what a few clueless people have asked me.." What year is that BMW.." This is also the poor man's BMW
not meaning to be offensive but this thread pertains to G/S's not GS's or even Vstroms (or whatever that is).
There's one near me, I am tempted...
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.
"...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.
Dude, don't poop in our thread....and you are describing a bike that is not in Old school. Keep your panties on....
Its just that... never mind.
(it's ok, I don't own a G/S either)
