I have a 1982 European model GS VIN 6255867. We are trying to solve a mystery in another thread about 1982 GS bikes. Some evidence indicates there were 71 1982 GS bikes imported. The micapeak registry only shows 1 in Canada that was bought in boxes and reassembled. BTW my '82 shows up as being one of the last 11 '81 models built in Dec.'81 but titled as an '82.
