A Note From The Owner...

My name is Ben Klopper and I have only recently discovered this fantastic site for classic GS machines. I come from Wellington, near Cape Town in South Africa.

I bought this 1981 GS 850GX new in June 1981. She has now done 28 800 km (about 18 000 miles). I never used the bike for commuting - only weekend rides during summer!

This bike has not been "restored" - this is the way she has always looked, kept as such by occasional polishing with Blue Magic.

Thanks for your great site for lovers of these fine classic machines!
