    Did you get the LEDs / LED holders online?
    Tell us a bit about how you did it -- the wiring, the LED holders (what kind), etc.

    The leds are individual leds you find in cheap stereo equipment. Availabe at Radio Shack. The white female plug used in the G/S dashboard was used as a base for all the wires, basically just stuck the wire in there and then taped shut. For the generator light, I used a real gen light bulb to get the right resistance right for the charging circuit.

    My favorite paint job of the S.

    I got the 100S after totalling my GS in May. I was not a big fan of the yellow when I first saw it but it's growing on me.

    It'll get the black/silver smoke treatment in a couple years though. :deal

    My new beast, rescued from a garage in MD. I'm not really into the whole military look, but it seemed like a decent deal. The rack is not attached in this pic, just sitting there (ie not quite as pathetic as it looks...)

    gotta love that high front fender mounted low , and the white tank that was not-quite-completely painted black primer.

    Done so far:
    * replaced the tank with a proper BB tank
    * re-install oem handlebars
    * properly mount that front fender
    * lose the ammo boxes

    to do... the list begins here -
    * buy a new proper bb seat... offers welcome!
    * install some tkc80s
    * progressive springs
    * round valve covers
    * acerbis handgards
    * apply some mud!:yum

    cheers -

    Very nice Paragon. What year is that R80? Looks alot like my R65. Is that a rebuild or is it extremely good condition?

    Thanks Oilhed
    April 1985 - mono - the one were the inners of the forks changed slightly

    Original condition - has just not deteriorated at all - 30,000 miles - but been in France for 15 years - I ride it for about 1500 miles every summer, (I live in the UK) – always kept inside

    Only ever been cleaned with plain water, (after every ride) - maybe the Bike has been "nursed".
    oil changed, (Mobil 1 – for the last 20 years) - every two years and filter every three - gearbox, rear wheel drive and swing arm oils changed every two year as has the fork oil and brake fluid.
    Tank off once to clean petrol filters - all other stuff checked/adjusted every two years.
    Never lubed the spines, (but must get around to that), I just did not want to break the gearbox from the trans
    Fork oil leak, (at the top), under the nut - 3 years ago - now cured with a big spanner and a lot of effort.
    Still got original rocker cover gaskets - only changes have been tyres and batteries.
    even the mufflers and collector box are original

    No problems or noises
    Never been serviced or to a BMW Dealer

    Always run great - rides like a dream in the French sun and on there less crowded roads

    Screen is BMW as are engine bars - motor was always unleaded - signified by a small green spot on the underside of the jugs

    always felt very privileged to have it

    Cheers :thumb
