Youre right. Those MS rondels were
NLA and valuable for a while but last time I checked SJBMW or Bob's, they were available for about $20 each as new stock and they are also available in Germany from Siebenrock.
I took mine off of a 79 RS that I parted out and thought I had some real treasure. Now I know that all I have is "Parts".
OTOH, I'd buy that bike is a heartbeat
and smile all the way home and for the next several weeks. Oh yeah....
