    But it came from Hilo. That's a sign. You should bring it home. :-)

    Perhaps the deal of the week here!
    1988 R100GS for $3500

    If I hadn't just dragged home another airhead on Friday, I'd be all over this one!!
    I think the wife would have an issue with two in the same week . . .

    The seller (Ray Becker) always comes up with some wicked cool stuff for airheads. He goes to Germany "autojumbles" quite often.

    I believe Ray Becker is the gent that owned "Olga" at one point. I bought the rig from Frank D in Brooklyn, and Frank said he bought just the bike from Ray. Ray had the complete rig with a Steib S500 on it, but sold off the Steib. Ray got the rig from Bob Pelikan's brother who lives near Boston. Bob P built my rig originally, complete with the /7 Heinrich tank.

    Funny ol' world, ain't it?

    Yep, if you've been around these old bikes long enough, you'll connect with Ray in some fashion. He attends our annual rally every year, usually sets up a swap meet area with lots of great parts/bikes. The last few years though he hasn't. The internet has pretty much made swap meets here a waste of effort. Sad.
