Well since we're on the cusp of a sticky... I have VIN #2701 a 1981 G/S. Originally sold in Great Falls, MT by Spartan Cycles. I'm the second owner, but now she's a Canadian citizen.

Nymeria!

GS Vin#3096 thanks to ZenBen. Just put 2,500 fun miles on her from Portland, OR back to Oklahoma City. I'm looking forward to many, many more miles to come.

81 G/s #2119

I am the second owner of a 81 G/S that I purchased in 1984
I just replaced the center stand with a R80 ST stand.
The stock return springs for both the G/S and ST are too long.
I need return springs that are about 80mm long.
Can anyone tell me where I can get the proper center stand return springs?

#2126

Picked up #2126 yesterday in stock condition. I would send a picture but it's still in the back of the pickup and has to go for an inspection for title/serial # verification and will be living in Berea, Ohio. I just completed the R80G/S micapeak registery before entering the information here.
Edit to add build date: 12/80

Hello everyone.

Please add me to the Registry. The last 4 are 2060.

I've just purchased a 1981 R80 G/S. The tag expired in June 1990 and it has been sitting in a warehouse since then, started occasionally to make sure it still runs. It's being delivered to me in a couple of days, but here are a couple of pics of it when it was spotted by a friend of mine. Battery is missing, right turn signals and mirrors are gone, but he put in some fresh gas and it kick started right up.
