SOLO LOBO,

Thanks! That was just when I was finishing up the resto! It did a couple of shows, and has gone through a couple of incarnations and now is a Rider! This is how it looks today!

Or am I to believe there are too many?
Total R80G/S production run (world-wide) 21,864 between 1980-1987

That's too many for me to keep track of!

Total US production for 1981 of the R80G/S was 747

VIN: 3096. Sold April 1985 by Bavarian Cycle Works, San Francisco.
Now with its third owner, and first non-family member of the original buyer.
Original and worn, but unless the odo lies, still under 30K miles.

I have just transferred ownership of G/S #3096 (above) to fellow inmate 'BalthazaarCalrissian'.
Here he is just before the 2500 mile trip home:


I still have 1984 G/S VIN:2952
Originally sold through Smith & Jones Motorcycles of Missoula MT.
