    Just ordered both. Dig the designs. I'll buy pretty much anything with a motorcycle on it.

    That said, you might want to revise your shipping prices. They're not totally outrageous, but I have a small business selling BMW parts over the internet (http://www.ihkabuttons.com) and I've spent a lot of time working out pricing for online shipping. $14 to ship two t-shirts is an awful lot. A box from U-Line is less than a buck (You can usually buy 7"x7"x7" cubes for 35 cents) and shipping that with two t-shirts weight in it, even across country, should be less than $4.50.

    I'm all for profit, but gouging on shipping has always rubbed me the wrong way.

    Just throwing that out there! Can't wait to get the shirts.

    yikes! you are right, that was my mistake on entering in the shipping costs for multiple items in bigcartel. I've just revised it. Thanks for pointing that out!
    obviously i'll be refunding you some shipping cash.

    I'm guessing you did this on purpose, but why do you have the carbs on the wrong sides?

    I'm in search of main frames for the monolever G/S-ST models and GS paralever models. They need to be 'straight' and not modified. Titles are not needed or wanted.

    I have plenty to trade for or will purchase the frames outright.

    Thanks

    I have a new-to-me 80ST which came with a leaky tank... I had drained the tank and set it just outside the garage door in the sun, to bake/dry out and try to patch it, and.... yep, you guessed it..... forgot about it and backed over it with the car.....:eek1

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, I know.... dumb and dumber.....:freaky

    Needless to say, it was marginally worth it to fix it before, but definitely NOT now... so....

    Does anybody have an inexpensive, castoff-but-useable tank for the 80ST... the tank for an R65 would fit, and, I am told, the tank from an R80R. I don't care about color or minor dings, preferably not rusted-through, though!

    Needed asap... summer is going by, day by day......

    I would start by drinking more of what's in that bottle and on Tuesday call Ozzies BMW at 530/345-4462. I know he has an extra St or G/S or R65 tank.

    Thanks... unfortunately, the 80ST has it's own tank mount system, shared only with the 80g/s and the gs airheads. And, the r100R Mystic tank fits as well, but that's it....

    A big THANK YOU to HARDWAREGRRL for offering an unloved tank from her spares, at a lovely price... which will get me rolling again soon...
