My new beast, rescued from a garage in MD. I'm not really into the whole military look, but it seemed like a decent deal. The rack is not attached in this pic, just sitting there (ie not quite as pathetic as it looks...)
http://home.comcast.net/~tjachp/DSCF0019.JPG

gotta love that high front fender mounted low , and the white tank that was not-quite-completely painted black primer.

Done so far:
* replaced the tank with a proper BB tank
* re-install oem handlebars
* properly mount that front fender
* lose the ammo boxes

to do... the list begins here -
* buy a new proper bb seat... offers welcome!
* install some tkc80s
* progressive springs
* round valve covers
* acerbis handgards
* apply some mud!

cheers -

R80?

Very nice Paragon. What year is that R80? Looks alot like my R65. Is that a rebuild or is it extremely good condition?

Thanks Oilhed
April 1985 - mono - the one were the inners of the forks changed slightly

Original condition - has just not deteriorated at all - 30,000 miles - but been in France for 15 years - I ride it for about 1500 miles every summer, (I live in the UK) – always kept inside

Only ever been cleaned with plain water, (after every ride) - maybe the Bike has been "nursed".
oil changed, (Mobil 1 – for the last 20 years) - every two years and filter every three - gearbox, rear wheel drive and swing arm oils changed every two year as has the fork oil and brake fluid.
Tank off once to clean petrol filters - all other stuff checked/adjusted every two years.
Never lubed the spines, (but must get around to that), I just did not want to break the gearbox from the trans
Fork oil leak, (at the top), under the nut - 3 years ago - now cured with a big spanner and a lot of effort.
Still got original rocker cover gaskets - only changes have been tyres and batteries.
even the mufflers and collector box are original

No problems or noises
Never been serviced or to a BMW Dealer

Always run great - rides like a dream in the French sun and on there less crowded roads

Screen is BMW as are engine bars - motor was always unleaded - signified by a small green spot on the underside of the jugs

always felt very privileged to have it

Cheers

What windshield do have on the GS? I have a '94 R100GS and would like a larger w/s but haven't found one yet. Checked Cee Bailey, Parabellum & AeroFlow.

It is a Parabellum !

Go to www.parabellum.com
Scroll down in the LEFT window and click on Sport Shield(SS)
Then scroll down in the right window ... you will see two listed for the R100GS
The Sport and also the Touring ... the one on my bike is the touring.

It is a quick change from the stock shield, maybe five minutes or so to swap them
...as they use the same mounting points ...


Let me know if you have any other questions ... Leftee
