The bike is bone stock and original except for the suspension (Progressive springs up front and Ikon 7610s in the rear) and tires (Pirelli Sport Demons front and back). She is an absolute joy to ride.

Edit: Better pic.
I always did like the Secas, nice bike !

1983 R80RS restoration

This machine was origianlly an R80RT....Pretty beat up but good rider. I discovered this machine could perform well beyond most rider capabilities, ceretainly my own. It deserved another life comensurate of its heritage and longevtiy. The R80 is definatelty one of the smoothest shifting airheads on the road. Chrimson Flash is one of these smoothies. This restoration is comprised of the origianl motor. Its frame powder coated gloss black, snowflake wheels powercoated Icebox White, lower fairings from the RT, upper fairings are from two RS machines to get it right, clearshield windscreen, new shocks and of course the paint is single phase Torch Red. The hadlebars are from a K75 for a less agreesive posture. It is a striking machine to see and a joy to ride. Long live the mighty Airhead.

1981 Custom R100Hack

This machine is awsome. Custom built triple tree and originally set up for Mexico. The rig is solid and drives true. Striking to see and a blast to ride. It's a pain to get anywhere fast .....draws too much attention at the gas station. Ural side car with polished gas can, powder coated ammo box, custom driving light, R100 is configured with a police box rear seat. It absolutly screams with delight. Long live the mighty airhead

1984 R100GS The Best!

What a Machine! One of the best machines and set up BMW ever produced in my opinion. Swiss Army knife....dang near bullet proof. The R100GS Airhead will always be the center of my stable. I love this bike. Long live the mighty Airhead.

Nice bikes. How have the trips to Mexico been with the hack? Did it perform as hoped? Would love to see the pics.

An '84 GS is a rare one, alright....

My Baaad the GS is a 1994. The hack has been to Mexico a couple of times by the previous owner.....I have not consumed enough Tequila to start speaking the language to get down there on this machine yet myself (LOL)...but I hope to do so

If anyone wants to see it, what's the best way to post it?
