81 Years of BMW: Gallery Picture

By Walter F. Kern

This is my 1981 BMW R100ZSGS Zwei Stoßdämpfer Gelände Straße—translation, Twin Shock GS. It has an R65 frame modified (by myself) to HPN (I copied an HPN frame). It has a 1981 1000cc RS motor, Werner Reinschlüssel 40L tank, has approximately 200,000 kms, not all by me. It was the most difficult rebuild and I tried to copy (functionally) the original Gaston Rahier / Hubert Auriol Paris Dakar bikes of the early '80s. I totally rebuilt the bike myself. -- Phil Moser, Johannesburg, South Africa
