    My story...

    So I pull up to the north gate of Yellowstone national park back in 1996 on my old R100RS.. the lady at the gate says...

    "BMW huh?, how long have they been making motorcycles?"

    That is the "before" picture, I'm still trying to get the pipes and collector off without resorting to my sawsall, any hints? I still have to strip it down to the bare frame for painting.

    Nice looking bike Dave, but I have a question for you, where do you get those cool heat shields, I have seen them on other bikes, maybe not identical, but close?

    i ran into a guy this weekend who has an 81 for sale. it's a sweet bike, rt tank, corbin seat, bmw bags, acerbis mini fairing. i didn't get the miles but it is a super sweet bike. he's asking 5k and isn't budging. if you're looking for a sweet r80g/s drop me a pm and i can get you guys in touch.

    if you have any intentions of offerring less than his asking price don't bother asking for his info.

    ...finally.


    1984, last four digits: 3040. I still find myself going into the garage just to look at it sometimes. Does that mean there is something wrong with me?:D

    the guy that restored it for me in Phoenix, AZ made that heatshield. I could ask if he would be interested in making more, if you like.

    a better photo too, if you want it.

    +1 since my stock side panel is warped...

    One question would be whether it would work with stock muffler. It looks like you have round pipe running behind it (?).
