Do they only work on the r80 and not the r100 frame?

From what I was told, these plates do work on the R100GS's

Here are pictures of the plates in question:

Is that the whole set? I can't really picture where those first two go. Do you have photos of these installed?

That's what you get, and here are the pix of a frame with the braces installed... two of the three pictures are easy to determine, still trying the figure out the third:

There should be something running from the top tube to the back of the steering neck. Maybe there are 2 of those mystery plates? Can't we just ask?

That third plate may be a single piece used to reinforce the steering head... I can't tell from the pictures and can't find any shots showing the neck.

Bgood, is your shot of the Paul Rooney kit on a bike or something else?

'cause it sure looks like two of these with a third middle piece

It's from a HPN build. And that's what I was thinking--that we'd get two of those pieces and they'd need to be bent somehow and have a piece in the middle. We can't e-mail the guy making them and ask him about it?

Yeah, you want this piece.



Welded to the downtubes outside AND inside. How do they get a TIG torch in there?



These?

Easily, by using a small cup along w/ the appropriate tungsten and filler rod. A flex torch like what CK offers will also make your day fly by w/ less effort.

The innermost bead, at best, out of the three in the pic might take some patience. A better pic, or better eyes for me, would show which direction the torch traveled. The glare and blue is a bit tricky to focus on to get a good read on their process.
