Thanks... unfortunately, the 80ST has it's own tank mount system, shared only with the 80g/s and the gs airheads. And, the r100R Mystic tank fits as well, but that's it....

A big THANK YOU to HARDWAREGRRL for offering an unloved tank from her spares, at a lovely price... which will get me rolling again soon...

Yeah, I know.... dumb and dumber.....

Needless to say, it was marginally worth it to fix it before, but definitely NOT now... so....

Does anybody have an inexpensive, castoff-but-useable tank for the 80ST... the tank for an R65 would fit, and, I am told, the tank from an R80R. I don't care about color or minor dings, preferably not rusted-through, though!

Needed asap... summer is going by, day by day......

ouch, big time ouch

Dang, Bob! And I thought I felt bad just for letting my ST tank fall off the trailer it was sitting on and get a tiny little ding above the tank badge.

I wouldn't know whether to curse or cry first on that one.

First you curse, then you cry.

sorry about your tank.. I am still on the fence about selling my full set of ST body parts. One day if I find a rough ST I would like to make a nice minty one.

New Krauser Lid

Hey

I have the new version of the Krauser hard cases made by HepcoBecker. I bought these from Bobs BMW a while ago. 2 years ago I was in an accident and cracked the left case lid pretty good. Does anyone out there have a left side case for sale? Or a broken case but good lid I can replace mine with? Here is what I have, from Bobs website.

I was the US importer for Hepco Becker for 12 years and also had the opportunity to see how these bags are made and the only way to replace the lid id to send HB the bag. This never made much sense to me as Siebenrock who has the exclusive rights to these bags offers the hinges on their website. Contact vertrieb@hepco-becker.de or krystian@siebenrock.com.

Used Avon Roadrider (rear) 120/90 - 18 65V

I've recently changed my rear tire to a more standard spec size (110) and now have this almost new tire spare. It has probably less than 500miles on it since it came with the bike that i bought about three months ago. The reason for replacing the tire was that partly due to size it made contact with the fender and rubber was coming off of one side of the tire wall (see pics). I said partly because my shocks need to be replaced, but that will have to wait for another pay check in the hopefully very near future. So there you have it, one rear Avon Roadrider 120/90 18. The little rubber that got rubbed off doesn't affect tire safety or life of it in any way. $50 would do it and get you an almost new tire. This can either be picked up (LA) or i am happy to post if postage is covered too (probably around $10-15?)

Eh?

Anyone want the Luftmeister off of my /6? $45 or trade for a set of sportier handlebars. Winshield is nice, but the fairing was repaired at some point. Headlight will go back in my bucket on the bike, but the turn signals go with.

I put about 20K on it in that time. It isn't dead quiet, nor was it ever in the time I had it, but it's pretty good. When I change out the gear oil in it, there has never been any chunks or metallic glitter in the oil. I would take $300 plus shipping which would be in the neighborhood of $35.

I also have a /5 front end, and some/5 engine electrics I'd like to get rid of.

Hope to hear from you.

Really? No one wants this thing? Maybe I just posted it at the wrong time, but I figured it would get snatched up in no time, but apparently not. A Guzzi project awaits, and I'd really like to get some money together. If no one here wants it, I guess I'll put it on Ebay, but I'd really rather not. It's a good box to buy and put directly into your bike and use.
