    I have a line on 2 used africa twins

    both have 40,000 km, one is a 1989 another is a 1991.

    Does anyone know if those were good years of africa twins? Anything I should look for?

    I was having a bitch of a time trying to figure out a proper location for my plugs on the AT. Here's what I came up with. It's made from AL and attaches via thick AL wiring loom clamps that go around the headlamp bracket. There's a kill switch, LED power-on light, BMW plug, and a marine grade 12V acc. plug.

    and more.. this is something really special, I'm not able to quantify the 1000s$ spent on this one, only the engine is around 4000.. it has an 840cc with the racing power curve.... :eek1 :drif :drif
