Babelfish translation:
"They offer tank on GRP for the models R80 and R100 G/S or gs. The tank was manufactured in the middle of the 80's in Italy by a specialty firm, which manufactured the running tanks for road WM. Unfortunately the name of the company does not occur to me. The tank was planned for the employment when long-distance running. The tank cost a fortune at that time. This tank never became installed and, has however camp-pure is new. It does also not participate a gas cap. About contents I cannot say anything, it must however far about 30l be."

It looks very functional and all that, but if I had to look at that thing everyday, I'd PUKE.
Just one man's opinion, that thing is BUTT ugly.

That's the 12 gallon tank, it'll set you back $2200.

Babelfish translation of the specs:
BMW gs G/S Paris Dakar rally tank for HPN or cheque change - the tank is original from the 80's - from GRP - in the very good used condition, accident-free and close - without ABE, only for Rallye and Racing of purposes - the tank has a 2-Kammersystem, chamber on the right of and left with a tank lid and in each case a percussion wall per chamber, in order to prevent and/or reduce a over sloshing of the gasoline. - Gasoline cock connection on the right of and left down, above 4 tapped holes for tool kit - the tank is fastened with that original BMW Bügelverschluß - when assembling the owner for the Relaise must be worked on -, I tried capacity out of approx. 42 litres not yet exactly

(That's roughly 11.1 gallons)

Need an education here. Is there a semi-partition for the R80 / R100 fuel tanks? Or there's no partition and fuel can flow freely from one pet-cock to the other?

The petcocks are lower than the backbone of the frame, so there is a partition of sorts.

OLH is correct, but they're not entirely separate as suggested in the babbelfish translation of the after market monster tank with two separate fillers in the e-bay ad above.

Fuel can easily flow from one side to the other in the stock tanks.

I just got a Tuareg transfer from this guy and it was the best i've had.

Good thick transfer, good bond to screen, and most importantly it pulled apart the way it should - the inner sheet came off cleanly without pulling the transfer off the backing, then the backing came off cleanly without pulling the transfer with it.

Good gear, and it arrived quickly too.

Yes and no. It will mount to the bike, but the front face of the saddle doesn't quite fit with it. Functionally it's fine though. There'll be about a 1" gap at the bottom front edge of the saddle as seen here:

Unless I am mistaken, that red tank is from the R100R, not the R100S?

R100S tank would be the standard airhead tank from the /7 era, I believe...??? and, to the original question, is there clearance UNDER the /7-era tank for the backbone+relays on the ST / G/S??

Woops. Somehow I read GS instead of S. Nevermind.

Heinrich

I just scored a Heinrich. I thought the model number was 203, my eyes are old though. It could well be 208. The serial number is 732. Questions are: What do I have to do to make it fit my 88GS properly and how much gas will it hold ? Thanks..
