    1983 R100S Last Edition.

    Does this look like a stock/original Last Edition?

    More or less, although it has had some obvious additions: San Jose top triple clamp, Progressive (I think) damping adjustable rear shocks, repainted/powdercoated wheels, steel braided brake lines, new spark plug leads, and Napolean bar end mirrors... I wouldn't be surprised if it has aftermarket fork springs as well. Otherwise, it looks pretty clean. It even still has the emissions plumbing.

    Was '83 a last edition? I don't think it was.

    83 was the 60th Anniv Edition.
    On the 1984 Last Edition I believe the pin stripes were red and blue. In the ebay pics the pin stripes look black.

    Hmmm...I don't remember a 60th anniversary. Not saying they didn't but it escapes me.

    So this not about a last edition. Miss named by the seller?

    I think the only difference between the 60th Anniv. and Last Edition was the color of the pin stripes and one had a Last Edition decal on the battery cover and one had 60th Anniversary on the battery cover.
    Both years were white bikes.
