Say hello to my new friend

I purchased this 1989 R100GS tonight. She's cosmetically a little gnarly, but only has 15k miles on her and is mechanically sound. The seller even had every receipt going back to date of purchase in 1989. The still-primered metal PD tank is dented, but I plan to fix that as well as her other shortcomings in the coming few months. I can't even begin to say how stoked I am!

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

That is beautiful, one of the best years. It will outlast both of us.

I gotta know Bob...how much was that Price is Right Showcase Showdown?

Why am I finding this bike appealing? I've stubbornly ridden my RS like a GS for twenty years, yet here's this machine that's caught my eye.
Hmmmmm, interesting.

Well done kaltblitz.

Somebody stole your seat!

It is a good looking machine; how's it run?

It came with a Corbin custom made for that tank as well as the stock bumble bee seat.

Runs good! Just needs a new driveshaft boot, tank paint and a good cleanup.
