WOW! SWEET!

he should be standing up, but whoa, cool!

Top case shaved, but starter left in place, battery moved up to clear room behind the airbox... which front end? It looks KTM, which must mean WP. they look like 50's.

Its dual plugged?

which carbs? look like flat slides.

Looks Very fun to ride.

The bike was built by Paul Rooney and is being prepped for the Australian Safari this year. Its 850cc and that race was after less than 300k's of testing. Great result.

Well Done Paul

That`s the bike I`ll be following, it`ll look great with a big tank. Hope it does well. Coincidentially, Ray Peake made up one similar to that a while ago. It had a kitted R65 motor (around 820CC), and only went on a couple of short rides before sitting for awhile then being broken up for parts as a purchaser could not be found.

R65

Well, unless you're talking about an R65G/S which is pretty rare. Otherwise it's prolly R80G/S. The R65 (non G/S) is reeeaaal similar, but doesn't have the extra swoop at the knee. Plus, I doubt the R65's ever had a vented screw on cap option (only avail in the first year or two of G/S series).

I noted the screw cap, but figured it had been modified. You`re probably correct about it being originally from an R80 G/S, I thought about that after posting but didn`t do a correction.

What a tease! You don't really think we'd let you get away with one pic, do you? Is that a Guzzi wind screen? And the caliper - show us how you mounted it! Cmon man, you can't jerk us around like this!

Im sure its back in this thread somewhere.

Its an 1985 R80G/S, running 70HP R100RS motor.
HPN 5% lower 1st & 5% Higher 5th.
5% Taller 32:10 Final Drive. From the Swiss R80ST.
Ohlins Rear, Gold Valves Front.
Custom Made Stainless Steel Exhaust.
Large Headlight - Same as R1150R
310mm floating front disc with 4 piston Brembo. Made my own bracket.
Screen is a Givi Screen, bought in a kit to fit an R1150R made my own mounting brackets.
R100GS front guard and thumbnail.
I have a 50mm swing arm extension to fit next.

Apart from that its stock

It rides very well.

Here are some old pics of the bike after the build








Since these I have fitted black rocker covers. Which I prefer over the Kidney ones. They are stronger too.

Wow, that is one helluva LOOKER! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I sort of do recall pics of this bike before, and drooled then as well. I like the silver, and the larger headlight and the roadbike gauges. Where did the headlight mount come from?

They are just some universal Brackets I bought from a Motorcycle Accessories Shop here in Sydney.
