Dropped off my new 1990 White R100GS at Ray's on Wednesday night for a gearbox overhaul, planning on using it for the OCR. The R100GSPD is too much bike for that trip.

I didn`t know you had another one, John; any pics for the collective? Will check it out next week when I`m out at Ray`s if it`s still there.

That would have been an ideal donor bike for my project, did you buy it locally?

Was speaking with Ray on the phone today, he`s done the gearbox; all new helical gears with 5% lower first and 5% higher fifth. He`s also rebuilding the driveshaft with the easily repaired, long lasting effort from Taiwan(?).

Any idea on the cost for this.

I`m not expecting any change from $14,000 and am prepared for it to cost more if it has to. Ray rebuilt and sold an R80GSPD a couple of years ago and an R80GS street moto not too long ago for around $14,000 each, so that`s my benchmark, but if mine costs more, it costs more. I know I will be getting a hand made bike built with great attention to detail, that is truly one of a kind.

Yes these are the driveshafts I import.



I purchased the bike locally, it was not on the market just a wisper from one of the guys I ride with, I went to look at it and purchased it on the spot.

My R100GSPD, that was a near perfect 40,000 kilometre bike when I purchased it for $10,000 last year had over an additional $10,000 invested into it. Worth every cent, about 90HP at the rear wheel and one of the sweetest bikes I have ever ridden.

Shit John, now you`ve got me worried. We`re sticking with the 980cc displacement, so no ultra expensive siebenrock kits; I`m not looking for maximum HP, just heaps of torque. The bike will probably have similar performance as Ray`s GSPD and will still run happily on 91 RON petrol.

I understand that, and clearly spending over $20,000 on a GSPD is a little excessive, but it will run with Ducati's in the mountains and still is comfortabe for 1,200 kilometre days. I purchased the GS to make sure the GSPD was not totalled on the cape.

Overhauled gearbox with relocated curclip, 5% lower 1st gear, 5% higher top gear.

Depends what has to be done inside, anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 if new shafts and bevel gears are required

Sorry Locky, I misunderstood your question. I haven`t worried about individual pricings and John has a much better idea than me.

Excuse my ignorance, but who's Ray? Is he a local expert? It's always handy to know these guys.

Runs the BM shop - makes things like injected turbo 90S's etc. Gets out and does miles when he can too, a regular at the WA border run.
