I've seen a lot of incredible airhead GSes but that's on another level.

Does anybody have a video of that crossover/muffler idling?

The best place to get answers is from the horses mouth. Paul's contact details are on my blog linked in my signature. Why not give him a call? I can tell you the bike uses adapters on the box that are available from a few places these days. A fair few road registered touring bikes a running the collector mufflers in Australia and at least one is navigating bigger pastures. Not sure of any sound or movie files of them, but if I find one will blog it. More images and info will be blogged also. Just kinda busy. I did put an image of the frame on the blog. I'd link it here but having trouble with phone technology!

Great Photos!

I've been following this thread for a few weeks now after deciding that my '92 GS-PD needs an update. Thanks for all the inspiration and good ideas.

Keep it coming!

There’s an article in the April 2013 issue of airheads’ Airmail regarding deleting the muffler and installing an exhaust pipe tip off the center resonator (R100R/GS), which recommends the 7” Superior Automotive p/n 28-2151 available at Pep Boys, etc.

I’ve heard this and can report it isn’t objectionable at all. Surely not as good as the Rooney unit but works in a pinch and beats the price of an aftermarket silencer.

Nooe- swapped em overfrom The r100. Still have a fresh pair of r65's just waitingfor the new owner to realize he needs em.
Fun to ride? Short answer is yes, but best description so far is "freak show." thats downgraded from "terrifying" anyway so thats progress

It has been lying in waiting for a while (I am sure I am not the only one ). Quite some things have been changed. The only thing I did not doe, is lengthening the paralever. I only lowered.

Regards,
Remco

That's coming along nicely Remco. Are you finished now or more plans afoot? True there are many more of these specials out there we do not get to see...Maybe that is not a bad thing. So much of what has inspired my dreams has deflated my wallet.

Thanks Stu,

The only thing left now is a complete dismantling, reinforcement of the frame, sandblast session and respray. But I doubt I will ever get to that.

Regards,
Remco
