I'm an idiot

OK, I SNAFUed that Bobs BMW price. The rebuild labor costs (with seats) less than $400, but the parts cost a little over $300 and I forgot that.

I've had '79 through '82 GS 750s,850,1000s, and a (current) '82 GS550. One of the things that you really need to check is the head to carb boots. They get brittle and useless from heat and age. Also...

My Bob's project

IT LIVES!!!
Actually (some $1000 dollars beyond the selling price) it's turned into a pretty decent bike. I just gotta synch the carbs.

On the GS's I've had so far, one of the best things I've done is replace the coils and points with the Dyna coils and Dyna III ignition systems. The next best thing is to replace the carb/head rubber...
