Pierce, nice looking ST. Is the seat custom, or reworked stock? It has better looking contours than my stocker at both ends.

Thanks -Kev.
Happy to say I recently picked up the larger GS tank to play with.

I'm considering changing the look of the ST to more of a Bumblebee paint scheme and adding some small fairing to clean up the appearance and air coming over the instrument binnacle, may will go with the cockpit fairing BMW offers.
Your windscreen looks great on the bike, that option is tempting as well.
I'm not looking for protection so much as smoothing over the headlamp-instrument area.

Seat

I'm not sure. It might be a reworked stock seat, it came with the bike so I don't know.

Beautiful paint job!! Is it the original paint, or have you re-done it?

Cheers,

I can't attach my R80ST pics because it's over 1.5 MB. They only allow 150 KB on jpg. Does anyone know how to covert the pics to gpx? can it be done?

Thanks SF2,
The PO had the fenders painted. Tank appears to be original paint with the red stripe added using adhesive-backed vinyl or something similar.

I'm not sure that this will help with your pic resizing but may answer:

Just to clarify: That's "original paint" from a G/S. The ST only came in two stock colors: metallic red and metallic grey.

G/S color schemes:

What's funny is that I don't see the "knee" indent typical to G/S tank ??
