R100GS the builds begins

This is the frame I purchased for $56 on ebay.
R100 GS (91) with the bent tang.

Robert (wirewrkr) is set to heat the tang and re-drill the hole
for new bushings.

So, it starts. She is sitting in the middle of the garage until my visit to Robert.

I'm thinking of a emerald ruby red frame, with polished 50 mm forks, swing arm and final drive and a silver / chrome tank.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!
