It's a sickness, and I've wanted an R80 G/S for a while.....
I go pick her up in about two hours. I'll get some pics of my own then, but here is one from the seller.....
Oooh... nice looking bike there, clang. Looks like you found a virgin.
Never saw a blue seat like that though. Does look better than the orange, I must admit!
Here's my G/S. I coveted it for years, finally my bud sold it to me. I love it.
Ken can make more of these, he is going to get me a price.
Very nice bike! From the looks of the concrete it looks like somebody parked a Harley there for a while.
Not mine and it's not really an 80 anymore as it's punched out to 1070 with 85bhp I believe. Saw it in Cologne at the bike show this week and thought I'd share it as it's such a sweet looking bike.
Again, maybe doesn't belong here, but a nice take by Wunderlich on the old 80 GS Basic.

We have been invaded by paralevers!
Get yer guns fellas!
Nice bikes though!
don't fret that paralever, it'll self-destruct soon enough.
I do like the orange and silver one. The paint gives me an idea for the R100 tank I just picked up for mine.
Looks like the bike in the Seibenrock cattle dog, with all the fruit
Yep, it was snapped on the Seibenrock stand
she sure is pretty. Wouldn't mind having one of them myself.... but the garage space is getting pretty thin.
Here's my '81 G/S:
It has been altered a little
It certainly has, so tell us more
What is the story on the lower shock mount?
Front to rear, main things:
- WP USD forks 43mm with KTM wheel & Brembo
- HPN cockpit with Touratech IMO & electric roadbook thingy
- Magura bars
- R100GS tank (bashed up to gain steering angle with USD forks)
- Siebenrock 1000cc pots & pistons
- custom made stainless rear frame & seat
- extended swing arm
- HPN rear brake
- Öhlins rear shock
The shock mount in the picture was an experiment.
I had the Öhlins rebuilt later, so it is a bit longer and the extra bracket on the swingarm is gone now.
The angle looks to be to far out, it must be nearly horizontal when you are on the bike, so how can it be effective?
What does it take to reverse the rear brake arm? a new cam perhaps?
Yes, the cam is different.
And I think the shoes are a bit modified as well.
You can buy a conversion kit from HPN but I bought the final drive complete like this so I don't know exactly what's in the kit.
