1st edition Danny Liska Two Wheels to Adventure

Hey All,

NOTE: Apology in advance for posting an eBay link on here. I was kindly made aware of my breach of etiquette by two other inmates. I appreciate the tutoring. Still learning the rules of the digital road on this forum.

I've got a 1st edition, signed copy of Two Wheels to Adventure. It's currently on eBay for starting bid of $100.

I don't want to sell it, but I need to in order to raise the money to restore my 1990 R100 GS that came back to me after a 20 year absence. I submitted a post about losing this bike and regaining it December of 2014 on this forum.

The link to that post on ADV is http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1032378

Since I got the bike back, I've had a mechanic friend and an auto-restoration expert helping me get the GS back in shape. It's been a long haul, and this is the most expensive "free" bike anyone will ever get.

The list of work is extensive:

new Enduralast II charging system
new rings
new paint on fenders, tank, tombstone fairing, side panels
new decals for metal Paris-Dakar original tank side panels, tombstone fairing
new powder coat sub-frame, crash bars, and exhaust
new left side peanut valve cover
new throttle, clutch, brake, choke cables
carbs rebuilt
new petcocks
new fuel line
Fox shock rebuilt with newer, heavy duty Cannon Racecraft springs
new Clearwater Ericka LED rally lights to replace the old incandescents
new o-rings, gaskets, oil pan gaskets
new pushrod seals
new seat upholstery and skin
new rear wheel
new old stock r80 G/S metal mirrors
new tires
new hand guards
new left side crash bar
new bar risers
all new stainless nuts/bolts fasteners
new Roundels decals for tank and fairing
customized tank mounting system
new Odyssey battery
Touratech panniers and rack


Add to all that the fact I haven't ridden in 20 years, I had to buy for me

new AGV helmet
new BMW gloves
new Klim riding jacket
new Klim riding pants
new Salomon boots

I'm selling everything I've got to rekindle the love affair I have had my entire life with this BMW.

Want to buy a book and help a brother out?

JimBentley screwed with this post 03-20-2015 at 06:43 PM Reason: I posted an eBay link and didn't realize it was a no-no. Sorry for my ignorance on that. I'll take a corrective dope slap.
