Just a feeler: I might be selling a NIB orange NOS dual seat for a G/S.
Any interest here?

Cut to the chase

so I have a TITLE ONLY to G/S 2544

See the story here of how I came to own a non-G/S frame and a legitimate G/S TITLE with the same frame number... now being semi-officially referred to as my G//S .






To make a long story short, if any of you good G/S folks know who or how the bike itself got separated from its title, let me know and I can "sell" you the real title..... It is now titled in Florida, it came from OREGON in 02/85.


I would like to help a legitimate G/S owner if I can! Otherwise, this might be the damnedest G//S you ever seen.........

Hey, it wouldn't be too difficult to weld on a shock mount and modify/remove the old muffler mounts. If a G/S is what you want. Or just build up a dual shock dirt bike. Or whatever...

That would be interesting if there's another bike (or frame) with your VIN.

I've meant to post to the this tread for some time now. Solo Lobo and the lot have been great support as I'm getting ready to do some changes on the g/s.

Mine 1981 (but registered as a 1982 in California for some reason?) it's number 2650. GSHorse was the previous owner. It's mostly stock with the San Jose brace and smaller fork mounted indicator lights. I've found that the battery box is wrong but I'll start another thread for that issue.


If you haven't seen my Flea Market ad, I'm swapping the subframe and fender for the R100, have HT goodies for the tail, and am looking for the R100gs seat and exhaust.

I got the same racks with my bike, not mounted though. I'm told the rack won't fit with the stock exhaust. I also recieved a low exhaust but I like the high pipe, not sure which way I'm going to go yet.
