    They are NOS Honda. ~~$55 shipped UPS to my zip, so depending where you are, the shipping may be less or more.

    I have purchased these, so they are out of the system for now. Shipping to me UPS, so when I get them I can send them out to you at your convenience.

    I have 2 sets of gaskets currently, one came with my Vesrah gasket set, so aftermarket, and a custom set I purchased from Joe Hovel. His set is from a made to order batch supplier he has been sourcing. These include re torqueing procedure of 4 cycles I believe. I could not locate the Honda parts anywhere until this post. I left an inquiry on the Hap's website. I would prefer to use original gaskets if I can get them. Thanks Ramprat06!

    I didn't have the wherewithal to ask how many they did have, but my sense said they were the only two at Hap's. Hap's number was given to me by another site I checked who showed them online, but on phone was out of stock, the guy said here try Hap's, they show having them. Sure enough......they had been on Hap's shelf for over 20 years. LOL

    Good day PGL,
    First, as you can see above, I edited your email to avoid spam bots. This should be common practice for any open forum.

    I will send you a regular email in a while, and from there you can get me your postal mail address and name. After I receive the package from Hap's (via UPS, which is why the cost was a bit high), I will evaluate the best method to send them on to you....hopefully I will be able to use a less costly method. I am not into making any money from this, so I'll just calculate the actual shipping costs to make me whole.

    I am retired now, so time is about the only commodity I have a lot of any more (knock on wood). This forum and many members have given me a great deal of support and gratis help over the last 10+ years, and when I am in a position to offer help, even though I have no bikes, I feel it's just and reasonable to do so. That is what the forum is all about.

    In actuality, I was quite surprised I stumbled upon a set as quickly as I did. It was probably less than 30 mins of google and four phone calls. I did not expect that for an 82 500 Turbo head gasket set. The fact they had sat on his upper stock room shelves for 20+ years make it an even sweeter find. I got rather giddy over the hit

    You'll know it's me writing, my email starts with 82vtwin........
    p.s. I have some pdf files of the Factory Service Manual and some other associated manuals I can attach to email, if you want them.
