Just in case you are not aware... you want to be very careful with how you handle some of the parts on the GL1200 Standard as they are made from unobtainium. If you misplace, lose, or break them, it...

If you are going to buy one, buy the 80 to 83. Parts migrate between the 1100 years easily so you never know for sure that your 81 is truely an 81.
