From yesterday's ride, last ride of the year:

Had them designed and cut from alluminium. Then painted it myself by hand!

What gas tank is that? R80 GS PD? Looks like you have the original tank in the background. If you don't like the big tank, I'll be happy to take it off your hands

What happened to the headlight? The square does look good on the bike.

...to my eye, the 80ST NEEDS a large round headlight, a-la Slash 6 or 7 style... will post photos of mine when I do it.....

I just picked this up from a 75 year old friend. He only rode it a couple times a year and doesn't feel comfortable riding any more.

Only has 32000 miles. It is going off today for new brakes. Scary ride home !! I am also changing the handle bars to ones more straight across. My wrists are not comfortable at this angle.
