Finally after some years on storage due to lack of tires (in italy we cannot legally use different tires or rim sizes), my 1987 Paso s/n 276 is back on the road fully functional now with Goldentyre "shoes" (the picture of course is before the visit to the the tire shop)

Real nice paso. Looks great. Did it run 100k km's?
Exhaust looks great. Any other modifications.

nice bike. The interesting thing about the exhaust is that I have the identical one with a aluminium cover and it`s from L&W. It seems that it was also sold as BOS just like some other exhaust systems that exist under different brand names.

The exaust are alluminium really, but they had some scratches and i put a carbon-like adesive sheet on it specifically made for high temp.
Other modifications, well basically it's all original. But i removed the air filter and put a fiat 127 abarth one (you can see it on the gallery at s/n 276). I did not touch the weber setting since and in case you need, you don t need to remove all the fairings.
And, yes The bike has nearly 100.000 km

is that a NonFango rack and if so how is it installed on the rear? Do you have a picture with the rear side fairing off?
100.000km is hard to believe considering the condition :thumbup:

The Rack is a GiVi and it has only two bolts each side. I have nonfango for the side bags but i don t keep it mounted when not needed.

That's a beautiful 87, I've always liked the chrome and silver accents a little better than the 88 black ones. Regards Arch.

I'm still wondering about that airfilter. It seems so small.

It works great. I just added the black plastic spacer from a 906 weber, a plastic "roof" to avoid water ingestion in case of heavy rain And connected the two sides at the bottim of carburetor with an alluminium hose. To register the air screws, now you don t need to remove any fairing

Yeah , me too :) . I do like the carbon fibre wrap tho , I have a few scrapes on my LH side stainless muffler that wont polish out and that carbon looks to be the cure :) . Bike looks good :)
