Here is my nearly finished R80 (1000cc) G/S PD Special.

Lot's of work and many mods gone into this bike, all done by me except the lengthened swingarm and the over hauled Cylinder heads.







I will get some photo's scanned of the full restoration process and do a story in a week or two.

The bike was purchased 3 1/2 years ago, I rode it to the last Off Centre Rally. I originally had the 80G/S and an R1100GS and found the 1100 wasn't cutting the mustard, frankly I was very dissapointed.
After a night on the grog with Ronny Durkin A prominent australian Adventure Rider, I realised what I had to do, that was, build what I wanted.

This photo is nearing completion.



Ronny Durkin's GS1000 Special was a bit of the inspiration. In Australia, a guy called Paul Rooney is a legend in modifying BMW's his work was also inspiring.

Rons special has works Marzocki Forks and a works rear end, extended swing arm, twin shock. Great example of an R90S.



When I first finished the bike, I had an R80G/S PD, with a red guard and white and red frame. I wanted more and I went from there.





I started to modify and harden it up, I began with a few engine and suspension mods.

















In between mods I did a few trips.






Just about all the work has been done by me except those as listed. Mods include the following:

WP USD front end - made by WP for a G/S purchased Ebay Germany
Ohlins rear
Swing arm extended 100mm - Paul Rooney
1000cc Power up kit - Siebenrock
320mm OCD Disc
Brembo K1100 4 Spot Caliper
Braided Goodrich front line
Thumb Nail fairing
Bark Busters
Acerbis Baja front guard
UFO Rear guard
Twin Plug Heads new valves, new guides and seats - Paul Rooney
Head work, flowing and polishing
Staintune headers and collector (Dary from Foranl is wanting to make a Foran full system)
Foran Muffler full stainless (Daryl from Foran is wanting to make a bigger Muffler)
Dual Ignition unit - Siebenrock
Rewire
Yamaha TTR indicators
Gel Battery - BMW
Acerbis 43litre tank (I also have the original PD tank and a 19l G/S tank)
PD Bash plate
Oil Cooler relocated under tank
Lengthened side stand

To Do:
32/10 diff on the way from Siebenrock
high 5th and low 1st
Brake relocation kit on the way from Siebenrock
Sort out the Bloody centre stand
Work out a solution for a better fairing and instrument system.

The bike is a substantial investment in time and money however, I now have a fairly individualised bike, that does what I want and is very capable. Power is excellent, suspension is right up there, not as good a ride as my 640 ADV, but the best BMW I have ever ridden.

Great writeup! Love your bike it has given me ideas for my own project. I think I'm going to have to visit Paul Rooney for some mods in the future, such good workmanship on the swingarm.

'81 R80G/S, and committed

I got this 20 years ago, rode it 5 years, 50,000 + miles, then sold it to a friend, and put 120,000 on a K75s. After the K I went to a '99 R1100RS.

meanwhile, my friend turned into a papa, and the G/S leaned against a shed for 12 years.


the way i got it. I got it back for free, another friend had given me his R100 GS, but it was too big and just sat around, molding. I traded straight across for my R80 back.

now:



It has Pelican luggage, a /6 headlight, and a R100 speedo/tach. That is a Triumph solo seat..anyone have the stock dakar solo seat/rack for sale/trade?

I must admit i am spoiled by the K and RS fairings, so if anyone has tips on a nice little fairing, i would love to know.

Pretty bike, Mendodave.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my wife's R80ST after a wreck. How did the instruments work out? Was the ratios correct for the R80G/S, or did you have to get them changed?

As for a fairing, look at National Cycle's Deflector screens, small and easily removed, but provide nice protection without looking big and ugly (IMO).

the speedo is about 5-7 mph off my GPS. (slow, but pretty normal for a speedo) Find one off a '85-87 R80/R100, ratio is 1.244. This works perfectly with the G/S rear end, at 37/11, but I think you've got the 32/11 on the ST, which would need the 1.078 speedo. your wifes existing ones got trashed? the speedo should have the ratio printed on it if that survived.

I got mine off of ebay, and it took a long time to find.


thanks for the tip on the Deflector screens
Dave
