R100GS - Sreet tracker / scrambler thing....

A few years back I bought a '92 R100GS as a practicle all rounder for every day use as well as touring.

The bike (was) a realy tidy example of the standard gs with factory panniers and the factory upgrade Whitepower rear shock. Nothing particularily exciting but a great all-rounder.

Over the past 4 0r 5 years I've mucked about with it's appearance a bit trying to make it a bit less dull and "old man BMW" looking. But nothing very serious.

I've always wanted to be able to put it back to standard-ish trim for touring or resale so the mods have been pretty tame/lame.

!st crack at a mod wasto have a crack at repainting the tank - kinda half arsed and crap - and swap the fairing for a single 7" round light and TrailTech Vaypor dash. This looked ok with the Gaston style mufflers and Accerbis gaurds but the big fat seat made the whole thing look a bit half arsed.

This time I'm going for a bit more of a considered approach with a slightly old-school look - tank, seat, lights, carbs and so on...

I've now started the real thing.
R60/5 tank - requires all the brackets on the side of the top frame rail to be removed and some adjustment of the electrics.

The rear subframe is from a mono lever r80 road bike. It's too long.
