A Note From The Owner...

Here's a picture of my 1979 GS850. Two years ago, I bought it as a tired old tourer, with a huge Vetter fairing and lots of rust.

I took it apart completely, made everything look nice and started riding it. After 1,000 km, an oil seal in the head gasket blew, and I had a big oil spill all over my bike and clothes.

Now she's ready again to take me everywhere !

This is the same model I had in the 80s, every trip on it leaves me with a big smile and nostalgic feelings.

Best regards,
