Headers, centrestand and bracket that keeps the dash in place is for sure 2004/05 GS 1200. The centerstand changed to straight legs in 2006 instead of the curved one on this photo.

That's just what happens when the front sliders come loose from the wishbone.

The owner did not get the crimping recall notice.

Danie dis net jy wat daai skilpad storie kan gooi. Dit bly tragies om n bike so te sien. Op vleisboek iets gesien van n low bed vol fietse wat so gebrand het, Danie die wildbewaring manne se, moenie skilpaaie optel nie! :peepwall:
Jaag en vat kanse, moenie indruk nie, die boek is klaar geskryf!
