The hand off


Josh, the smiling seller, Me; all WTF did I just do?

My loving wife agreed to a quick Florida "vacation", heh, heh, heh. It's safely back in Wisconsin now. Last ran ""7 or 8 years ago". Dissolving gas tank parked it. Might be a couple things need doing...

Slosh in a bit of tank sealer, should be good to go.

Nice score Gary. Josh & I used to ride with the St Louis Area Buellers (SLAB) a local BRAG back in the 90s & 00s. There's likely old photos of that RS1200 posted here on BadWeb. I always admired that RS1200 & would have pursued a deal if I didn't already have one.

Those fuel tanks are a real headache....

The RS1200 I picked up had been in slumber for a number of years as well. I had to rebuild the carb and changed oils. It ran pretty good afterwards but similar tank issues need to be resolved.

It lives! A temp fuel tank, freed up the slide and butterfly, chucked in a battery and vroom vroom!


first ride

Rode it 5 miles around the country block pretty close to range with a quart and a half fuel tank.

Motor runs great all the way from idle to red line and up and down the gears. Couldn't be happier
