I thought I better post a pic, in case someone snaps it up and it disappears offa ebay! Actually, a good GS1000G is worth way more than AUD $2800, so he should have just left it alone............. ;D

FWIW here is a list of components on SN 41 (bike without gearing).  It weighs about 11 pounds without wheels when rested on a bathroom scale.

Sakal Custom Road Champion bars
Hutchinson tires
Dura-Ace 170-R3 crank
Avocet seat
Mavic 25 inch wheels
Normandy stamped on the hub
Kyokuto Pro pedals
Huret Luxe wheel locks
Velox bar ends stamped made in France
Velox rim bands  fond de jante


Another odd thing, the wheels measure 25" outer edge to outer edge but the tubes were 27 x 1.   Sure seems like it would be a French bicycle.....Larry

I particularly liked the block of wood he used for a side stand. Very steam punk, but maybe a sheet of brass wrapped around the block of wood would be even better? ;D

the block of wood is probably the only thing close to roadworthy on that nasty little thing, it will sell though, someone will want it for the motor and wheels, sell the tanks and throw the rest away
It seems I've kicked the Honda habit again...anyone mind if I stick around ?

I feel a little guilty posting this pic here because the owner is a work-mate, but all I know is that before Easter it was a lovely little Royal Enfield 350, very original with nice paint, and a better seat that I made him a special bracket to mount last year. I came back to work today, and the nice original paint looks like it's been dipped in concrete, and there's some sort of a horse saddle on it, not to mention the milk crate carry rack. Oh, the humanity......... ;D

He explained the process to me, but I had to rush off and vomit, so I don't remember exactly? ;D

Is the plastic crate attached to the swing arm? Is it on there to keep the tail light from escaping, or for luggage?

It's a luggage rack I think, to his credit he rides his bike to work every day, so I'll check it out tomorrow morning and take a closer look. Hopefully I won't bring up my breakfast in the process........... ;D
