apparently, there would be someone in la rochelle (france), he has it (in french for sure, maybe in english).
he s selling copies of the original book (280 pages around)
the more he has customers, the faster he goes to make the copies :

is not working anymore, it was the original bmw repair manual of the R80G/S.

HAPPY TRAILS

Vince,
Last I checked Capital Cycle in the USA had the original repair manual for sale and I bought one. $70usd. Just as handy is the part catalogue that motobins had for sale. I have both and use them all the time. The bindings fall apart. They are paperback size. Bill

I have Clymer and Haynes manuals. They are both OK, but I think the original BMW would be much clearer about most repairs.
Thanks Bill, I will check out Capital Cycle and let you Know...

you can go on http://flatmaniac.free.fr/ or http://flatmecanic.free.fr/ and ask the webmaster for a FREE access : other usefull info, pictures, how to fix/repair etc ... other manuals are also on line, like the r80gs r100 gs in english etc ...

Hi, I am not electronically savvy enough to figure out how to host the workshop manual, other than scanning it page by page and posting the photos somewhere...

But maybe someone like Grant could help us out.
