Rat bike to tourer…the GS

Hopefully the old 1000 won’t turn out to a huge pain in the ass. Going against my usual rule of thumb – buy the lowest mileage, least used example of any vehicle you want, irrespective of age. And don’t touch it if it’s been in Cambodia for long….well that went out the window. This is a 1987, with 50K on it’s, broken, clock and I know it’s been here for at least 8-10 years as I met the original importer. Oh well. I’d like keep some of the Cafe Racer flavour while heading back towards the tourer under neath. Will it ever make it any further than the shops…
