Yes, VERY nice...
New concept. Exhaust is from car (Fiat Abarth?) :)
Checking in a year or so after I bought the bike. PGH winter is on us as of today (snow!) and it's time for a bit of rebuild work and some rewiring. (Is it just me, or should the headlight NOT turn off when I turn on the heated grips?).
last four on the VIN is 2243, it's an '81 R80 G/S and the VIN Decoder says it's a US model. I bought it from a friend in California who had to switch to sidecars, he put a lot of work into making it good for long rides in the mountains and such. I think I've got all the paperwork from the original purchase but basements keep making thing disappear.
I'm having trouble getting flickr to embed the image, so for now here's a boring link to flickr

Now in process of rebuild. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=836429
Number 2363 belongs to me now.
I have number 2938. Came from Salzburg Austria. Registered as 1982 but is actually March 1981 production.
Recently added side bags, solo seat and rack, accessory outlet (thanks GSAddict!) and soon a clock I just found. Yay!
My buddy has number 0042, the 42nd R80G/S made.
Here's my R100 G/S. It was registered in september 1987 and the last four digits in the vin are 2501. So I guess it was one of the very last bikes to run of the production line. I bought it in 2007 and the previous owner imported it from Berlin, Germany.
Is that a R100 or PD tank on your bike?
It's a 32 liter PD tank. Came with the bike when I bought it. One day I plan on getting it back to it's original color with the original PD stickers or maybe just some stripes in BMW motorsport colors.
It looks great. I have the original 19.5 liter tank which only goes about 240kms before I need to find fuel. Pretty much given up finding a PD tank for anything near reasonable money but I do have a lead on a R100GS tank which does fit and will increase range. Not as nice as your PD tank though! It just _fits_ the bike so well.
Nice bike Dan!! What are you running as a silencer??
Thanks! Both the silencer and subframe are made by the german company Gletter. Link: www.gletter.de
DK Dan what rear rack do you have on your stunning bike?
Funny I was just saying I've pretty much given up hope of ever finding a PD tank for anything near reasonable money!
