<o:p> </o:p>
ID tag on lower left- Werner Reinschluessel (RW on the tag) made these tanks from 1981 to 1984, when he transferred the rights over to Jeckel. Code 208 indicates that this tank is made for R80 G/S, and holds 40 liters. The number 743 is the serial number.

Go ahead and add the R100GSPD tank to the list - it fits nicely.

wirewrkr 02-05-2010 07:00 PM

All R65 tanks from 1979 until 84.5.
Basically that means any twin shock R45 and R65 tanks
fit perfectly on any G/S ST or GS of the airhead variety.

Note-tool tray on top of tank



Same fitment issues as steel R100GS tank. It´ll form a gap at the base of the seat. Yes, it attaches via the same ´pocket´in the front of the tank used by all the other BMW tanks and the same bale at the back. That isn´t just a tool ¨tray¨ on top. It extends about 8¨all the way to the bottom of the tank and can fit quite a bit of stuff. Also, the capacity is 9.3 gallons, not the 8.9 listed. The steel R80G/S PD tank is 8.9.

R80 mystery tank
 
Sorry to hijak this thread. I picked this up from an Adv ad for my R80ST.

Pic 1: note shape is like R80ST, not R80G/S, not R65

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_GCeAtR4KXlA/S3...whitetank1.jpg


Pic 2: note filler drain and vapor vent tubes. Also, welded on tabs that have no purpose on an ST or G/S

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_GCeAtR4KXlA/S3...whitetank2.jpg


Pic 3: note ST, R65 style filler but with PITA spring loaded flap like later GS. Also note original color - looks like G/S blue.

Clueless in Pittsburgh :confused

You can use the mono lever tank from the non GS bike( RT RS STANDARD )
IF and only IF you do this to the front mount and get the proper rear bracket and drill two holes in the back of the frame. It's not difficult, I have done it.

Sorry, this picture was deleted when the mods were screwing around with picture posting awhile back. if anyone wants to see the mod, let me know

It looks like a later r80 GS basic tank to me, they had the tank which ll\ooked like the G/S tank but a locking cap and being a later model probably the venting (I'm guessing on that).

No you're not hijacking the thread that's what it's here for, getting info on tanks.

Thanks and I thought of that possibility. The R80GS Basic was not imported here and there is still what looks like OEM G/S blue under the repaint. I guess anything is possible.

wirewrkr 02-14-2010 01:58 PM

yEAH, I doubt if non-US tanks would have US spec flaps etcetera. Actually, it looks like a California spec tank.
my vote is for an ST tank, given the shape is the same and so is the gas cap.
Robert

One Less Harley 02-14-2010 02:00 PM

R80GS Basic was not sold in the USA???
