    Nathan @ Boxerworks here, Just got back from a three week trip out west and wanted to share with you some photos of the R80GS build we finished right before I left. The goal of this build was to preserve the original beauty of the R80G/S while Adding a few major upgrades including:
    • Modified Rear R100GS Tubeless spoke wheel and R100GS Front end
    • Siebenrock Exhaust and their speedometer for the R80G/S
    • BMW nameplates to replace the reflectors on the front forks
    • Modified Acerbis Rear fender
    • Inverted Brake lever for more ground clearance on the 4 lug final drive
    • Ohlins Shock
    • Custom fitted head light guard
    • Screw on Roundels
    I also included a picture of the build next to my R80GS/R100GS that I rode out west.

    Took the "loaner" Transalp back to Nathan....River helped me load it.

    He's almost ready for his own Green machine...

    And we visited the grey beast and he let me know his disapproval of not paying attention to him.

    Wish I could've rode it....

    if u file the same profile on the back side of the actuating end of the lever u can turn the lever upside down The angle of the brake arm (the splined arm on the outside) that attaches to the brake rod needs to be mounted back away from the front of the bike at enough angle that it pulls the peddle back to rest. If this is clear s mud ,I can modify one for you or u can call me and I can maybe better explain it you can find us at boxerworks.org many thanx N
