    Let's liven up this site - 1990 851 SP2

    Its been a while since anyone posted anything so I figured I would add some spice to this group. These bikes are so lovely. I never get tired of looking at them so here is mine:

      Thank you! Its all original except the mirrors. However, I was recently able to acquire some "Mickey Mouse" ears mirrors in very good condition from Germany. The problem however is that the previous owner drilled holes into the front fairing to mount the later style mirrors. I don't really want to repair and repaint because the paint is original. I think I will try to buy another front fairing.

        And the slip ons are not OEM :-)
        These high mounted slip ons look way better, so an improvement in my book

          LOL of course you are right! The bike looks so good with the high mount pipes that I forget that originally it had the low mount ones. I am not too sure about the mickey mouse ears mirrors either but at least now I have them if I ever want to make the bike look stock. I am also looking out for the original 50mm slip-ons too with the exhaust hangers.

            1990 sp griffy.
            Finally fixed a foot peg bracket that got slightly bent 20 something years ago. New tires, and after 12 years finally turned the preload racey looking things a quarter turn, had to offset a 15kg weight loss on my side. This proving in my particular case, that bling can have a usefulness.

            Yes they are indeed a cool looking machine. With a little pissing about, go like stink too.
