Thought I should post it up here: went back just now to cut and paste the info, and it has been taken down....






SOMEBODY just got themselves a beauty, I do believe..... any 'fessing up out there.....??









Anybody?

very nice

Thanks for posting the pics Fat Pat.
Looks great, very clean, not even showing those low miles.
The bike appears to be blessed with good owners.

Finally...I got the pics that is up-loadable of my R80ST

So, here it is, my R80ST(1983, serial# 6207642). Bought it about three weeks ago...I love riding it everyday now, more than my beautiful red 2005 Ducati S2R...

Cheers,

low bars

thanks for posting the pic SF2.

I just read your low bar thread and the cable recommendations wirewrkr posted, nice having that information available.

how's that seat working out for you?
I have a spare stock seat I'm not using. It's a little threadbare but you may be interested?

Thanks for asking,

I had my stock seat lowered for ~ 2 inches (almost to the bare bone), but still a little too high for me (still tip-toe on both sides)...I'm 5'8" and only 30 instream, but it's much more manageable than before.

I'm not sure if I have a low handlebar...

After I look at some R80ST pics, I just realized that I'm not really sure if I have a low handlebar or not...can somebody tell what are the differences? (my R80ST picture is posted above)

If the silver bike is yours then you have a low bar.
The high bar at least the US market high bar is a very noticeably higher bar.
And not all that good looking i might add

Them's the low bars, all right. Lows have a rise of only an inch or two.
