Climbs the final drive-- Jacking?

Ah yes- paint wont fill those never mind

I think the weight difference is only about 50lbs, but the 80 carries it nicer, I think.

Know any welders?

If it's "shape" is still there, cut it open, cut out the bad parts, weld in the good parts, and coat that sucker.

Course it lifts the arse when you accelerate, that's the beauty of the monolever!

I love the ways she rises to my every whimsical acceleration,
And how she squats with me as we carefully enter a corner.
Sure 40hp ain't much, but her broad, confidant, purr
Hoists my fat ass wherever, whenever, whyever.

I luvs my G/S!

(That, dear friends, was a miserable attempt as G/S poetry. Sorry.)

Congrats Gage, guess it serves me right for hanging in the basement too much; I missed your intro here. Of course, I'll be round for the finish, but it's nice to be a part of the middle, too: your tank is on the way! Couple of surprises, too. Just junker bits, busted up a bit, but you said you needed 'em. Not going to tell you what they are, but they're the best price---free!

Thanks Tyll! I'm looking forward to riding together and trading bikes to see how they compare... Before yesterday I hadn't ever ridden an R80G/S, and the R60/5 I last rode left my ownership in 1996.....

This shot is by my lovely wife, right after I got back from the 1st ride... right before I found the tire split and leaking final drive seal (which I dropped at the shop this morning, back by Friday!)

Can you tell I'm smiling?

the tank looks much better with a person on the bike. kinda evens out the proportions a bit.

I believe it's an old San Jose brace, most often seen on airheads road bikes.... I had one on my R100RS, both of 'em actually...

**edit** found it...

http://www.sjbmw.com/parts.asp?searc...=Frame/Chassis

Part No. 125-B7
Fork Brace - Tubular

This sturdy tubular steel fork brace holds fork tubes in precise alignment and exerts a self-aligning torque as cornering forces increase. Provides smoother fork action, sharper steering response and more stable, predictable handling. Fits most Airhead twins from 74-80. Direct bolt on for all with "S" style fender, other fenders may require some drilling.
Notes: OUT OF STOCK
