Checking in a year or so after I bought the bike. PGH winter is on us as of today (snow!) and it's time for a bit of rebuild work and some rewiring. (Is it just me, or should the headlight NOT turn off when I turn on the heated grips?).

last four on the VIN is 2243, it's an '81 R80 G/S and the VIN Decoder says it's a US model. I bought it from a friend in California who had to switch to sidecars, he put a lot of work into making it good for long rides in the mountains and such. I think I've got all the paperwork from the original purchase but basements keep making thing disappear.

I'm having trouble getting flickr to embed the image, so for now here's a boring link to flickr
