    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 (?).
