    Parked in Rossland BC, when a guy comes up and starts looking my G/S over really carefully. Turned out he had one of his own.......I think his is an '83, mine's an '85.

    Nice results!

    Was that Eric's "spare" G/S before you bought it?

    I am the second owner of a 81 G/S that I purchased in 1984
    I just replaced the center stand with a R80 ST stand.
    The stock return springs for both the G/S and ST are too long.
    I need return springs that are about 80mm long.
    Can anyone tell me where I can get the proper center stand return springs?

    Picked up #2126 yesterday in stock condition. I would send a picture but it's still in the back of the pickup and has to go for an inspection for title/serial # verification and will be living in Berea, Ohio. I just completed the R80G/S micapeak registery before entering the information here.
    Edit to add build date: 12/80

    Hello everyone.

    Please add me to the Registry. The last 4 are 2060.

    I've just purchased a 1981 R80 G/S. The tag expired in June 1990 and it has been sitting in a warehouse since then, started occasionally to make sure it still runs. It's being delivered to me in a couple of days, but here are a couple of pics of it when it was spotted by a friend of mine. Battery is missing, right turn signals and mirrors are gone, but he put in some fresh gas and it kick started right up.
