I have number 2938. Came from Salzburg Austria. Registered as 1982 but is actually March 1981 production.
Recently added side bags, solo seat and rack, accessory outlet (thanks GSAddict!) and soon a clock I just found. Yay!

2501

Here's my R100 G/S. It was registered in september 1987 and the last four digits in the vin are 2501. So I guess it was one of the very last bikes to run of the production line. I bought it in 2007 and the previous owner imported it from Berlin, Germany.

Is that a R100 or PD tank on your bike?

It's a 32 liter PD tank. Came with the bike when I bought it. One day I plan on getting it back to it's original color with the original PD stickers or maybe just some stripes in BMW motorsport colors.

It looks great. I have the original 19.5 liter tank which only goes about 240kms before I need to find fuel. Pretty much given up finding a PD tank for anything near reasonable money but I do have a lead on a R100GS tank which does fit and will increase range. Not as nice as your PD tank though! It just _fits_ the bike so well.

Funny I was just saying I've pretty much given up hope of ever finding a PD tank for anything near reasonable money!
