mine is 1986 Paris Dakar - (it of course should not have that side panel in Dakar guise)

Photo below - i hope - with some bits missing, (exhaust etc) - now in more bits as i will be ready to have the frame powder coated in the next couple of weeks
I will also paint my red Hawker black - use a rattle can

red seat and rack - BM Germany still have , (a few) - but be quick

Cheers
