GSPD Tank from a '95 on an '88 R100GS

Has anyone ever put GSPD Tank on an '88 GS? Will it fit? Does anyone know if it is a bolt-on? Does it look funny?

Thanks for your help!

Mark

Bakerman's got one on his. You'll have to make your own mind up on the looks.

Worked in a BMW dealership when they were new.

Yeah, it'll work. You may have an issue with the seat (depending on what you have now).

Thanks for all your help!

Thanks for all your help! I'm not sure that it looks right to me. I guess I'll just have to keep looking for a G/S PD Tank!

Thanks again for all your help!

Had one on my 88. Depends on your definition of funny I see if I can find some different angles.


Can't find a view from the front.
