Yes I just found out recently that the 83 was a replica bike and that the sticker on the tank is not signed. I have owened this bike since it was new, so i guess you learn something knew everyday. I have a bad habit of calling it an elr.
I found a salvage yard in Texas that has a 1982 GPZ1100, but haven't contacted him until I was sure the covers will fit.
Thanks for the reply
