My 1986....#7762. In Québec. Just received new fork springs, timing-chain kit....still have to install them. Will need a new rear shock... And after I decide she deserves it, a single-seat! (cause that Corbin is...ugly).

30 years with the same bike? Nice. How many miles?

Looking at these pics makes me want to take mine out for a ride, except I don't know when the snow's going to melt.

I'll be mr Obvious and state: that is an 80ST not a 80G/S (the ST is kinda the street-oriented version of the G/S). It is hard to tell from the description and images, but at that price in our market that would be a very good deal.
A very sweet bike by most accounts.
Buy it!

"...or whatever that is"...That is a bike that will last twice as long as yours and NEVER be in the shop because of broken final drives, fuel pumps, etc etc. What it is, is the most dependable motorcycle ever made at $8K brand new.
