Hi folks, new guy from Oklahoma City. Bought myself a 1983 GR650 a couple of weeks ago and have begun to work on it a bit when I'm not working on my GN400 cafe project.
Plans are to cafe it as well. Towards that end I found a fuel tank on ebay that came from a 1980 GS650E that was in very good condition. The entire rear sub-frame will be replaced with a new flatter version. Clip on handlebars, possibly upgrade the lighting to LED, new wheel and steering head bearings as well are also in plans.
A little about yourself.

Welcome to this small enthousiast group dedicated to the somewhat rare GR 650. Many surviving GR 650 are successfully converted to something it wasn`t originally designed for: motocross, Cafe racer or even sidecar tug. It`s a pity that this superb old Triumph Bonneville Japanese version didn`t encounter a bigger commercial success.
Thanks for the welcome. I recall when these came out here in the States. I was nineteen years old and in the market for a new bike. The choice was between a new '83 GS550E and a new '83 GR650. The GS550E won out as I was into cafe style bikes even back then.
