    This is the frame I purchased for $56 on ebay.
    R100 GS (91) with the bent tang.

    Robert (wirewrkr) is set to heat the tang and re-drill the hole
    for new bushings.

    So, it starts. She is sitting in the middle of the garage until my visit to Robert.

    I'm thinking of a emerald ruby red frame, with polished 50 mm forks, swing arm and final drive and a silver / chrome tank.
