The DT400's were nice. I didn't think much of them at the time, I thought the RT1 and RT2 were good, but looking at it now, I could do with one for commuting and ...I'd turn it into an SM ;-)

Beauty. And if he kept it for that long as a peice of art ( that exhaust system qualifies) why give it up now? I'm sure it's much nicer than what you paid for it. Great buy.

Here is a recent photo of my Modified R80G/S with the USD front end fitted. A couple of R80G/S in the background.

Damn

I love looking thru this thread

What IS the lure of the Classics (or not so Classic, but old & neat)?

Is it memories of these when they were new and "modern" / "state of the art"??

Is wanting to be "different" from the masses of "indivualists" in our fetish?

Is it admiration of the engineering diversity?

Is it the appeal of NON-COMPUTERIZED hardware?

Are we just nucking futz?




















for me probably all of the above + frugality
