Sweet bike - interesting instrument panel... Any idears?
You mean the road book holder or the little do-dad on top of it?
Stock F800GS + the entire Twalcom inventory for the F800GS......
Conservatively, that bike is sitting at the $25,000 mark. Start saving up!
MD road book and an ICO trip meter. So this would be a F800SE Looks good.
I agree with the other two guys...how is the frame and shock bolt holding up?
Also, I have looked all over TouraTech website and cant find that skidplate pictured on the bike can you help a brother out?
Its a Twalcom skid plate, i think i saw them on ebay.
Lots of fancy stuff on that bike but what caught my eye was the front end, heaps better than the low guard and its simple.
I may be missing something, I dont "see" $10,000 worth of parts on that thing..or you were just making a point that has alot of farkels...
If I am missing something please clue me in. I am not challenging yur statement, just wondering if I am missing something.
Very Cool. Great photos! Thanks.
I was riding like that just yesterday
This bike is great. It (and Stefano) came 5th on the twin cilinder category on the Erzberg Rodeo 2009
:eek1 this is so bad .......... anyone want to buy a 9fiddy
It's absolutely a sick bike - Twalcom and Stefano have been competing with it (in some form) around Europe since 2008. The two premier events that it competed in were the Erzberg Rodeo in Austria and the Campionato Italiano Motorally in Italy.
Stefano also runs the Adventure School - Italy. (Google translated for your easy reading pleasure ) where you can learn how to ride like he does.

In regard to the bike - most of what you see on it is available in North America via TwalcomUSA.com. The big engine guard, QD Exhaust, Bitubo cartridge kit and rear shock, replacement chain, sprocket and pinion. Some items are coming such as the replacement front and rear Excel rims with hubs.
The bike probably has ~$10000 worth of stuff on it including some customs items that aren't available for purchase...
(Full disclosure - I run TwalcomUSA.com and F800Riders.org. Please excuse the spam.)
Damn your bike looks good!
Been drooling over the pics for a while and have a couple of questions!
that front mudguard you'r using, is that a twalcom part or did you make it yourself? What about the license plate holder, that doesn't seem like it looks like you took it from another bike and bollted it to the rear, could you share more info onthat?
Again.... The most agressive 800gs i've seen!
Hey Rob! What's the deal with the front rotors you guys are selling. Are they floating ones like the stockers? Straight bolt-on to the stock hub?
Anyone and any bike that finishes Erzberg is BAD ASS in my book. Way cool!!
I think when you starting looking at all the parts, changes, and mods you would be very close to that number. Twalcom parts alone is probably half of it. And if you threw in labor, even if its your own, its still a cost.
Just to be clear. Twalcom has new HUBS with kit on their website and you will be selling these as well? Or is the kit a set of excel rims and spokes only?
Yes - the complete kit with the hubs are coming.
Prices all came directly from their respective websites:
Stock new F800GS: $11,400
Bitubo Rear Shock: $1300
Bitubo Cartridge fork kit: $600
Motorally Engine Guard: $300
QD Exhaust Titanium: $500
QD Stainless Steel Headers: $650
QD Power Tune-Up Gearbox: $822
RK Performance RX-Ring GB525XS Chain: $200
Braking Rear Rotor: $190
Braking Front Rotor: $250
Full Twalcom Excel Wheels: $1700
Selle Dalla Valle Seat: $335
Pivot Pegs: $125
Twalcom Low Black Windscreen: $196
Touratech Roadbook Holder RB-TT Carbon: $905
Touratech IMO-100R Rallye Set (English): $1047
So ok, $20,520. Still a lot of $$$$$$$
And that's only all I could think of from just looking at these pics. That's not inlcluding handguards, bodywork, shift lever, brake revervoirs, little protectors of all kinds, etc. However, there's also a ton of other mods and stuff that the pros would know about that I don't. Not to mention also all the labor involved. I bet once the owner adds everything up, it's sitting above $25,000 USD.
You just counted $600 for the cartridges. Those are the new full-on custom Twalcom shocks that have 60mm(?) more travel and are fully adjustable. I think, just maybe, they'll be more than $600. So you're probably even closer to your original number. And you haven't counted labor to install all that shiznit.
If they aren't, I'm getting me a set!!!!
it's the stock body work with a $50 sticker kit :)
Yeesh though. You're absolutely right.:huh
