Here for sale is my BMW 80. I bought this a couple of months ago as a winter project, to turn it into a Bobber, or Café racer. However, it’s far too good for that.
So instead, I changed all the fluids, plugs, etc, and carried out a full service including lubing the gearbox input shaft splines. Fitted a new battery, and have been happily using it as my daily driver for the last few weeks.
Overall, for a 35 year old bike, it’s in excellent condition.
It runs really well, and is a joy to drive. However, I’ve now found my next bike, so this one has to go to make room.
Here’s a summary:
27 000 miles – verified by a mountain of paperwork.
MOT until December 2019
Fully floating cast iron front disc – works really well
Stainless steel full Keihan exhaust system (slight dent on right-hand silencer – see pic)
New AGM battery
New timing chain at 15 000 miles
Good tyres – plenty of life left
BMW panniers – locks work, but no keys
Front mudguard poorly repainted
Slight paint wear on the rear corners of the tank
Rev counter gets excited at about 5000 rpm, and starts waving!
Show it or Ride it.
Extensive work has been carried out on this bike:
Repainted in the original 1978 factory red,
Converted to run on unleaded, at the same time cylinder barrels were inspected honed and new piston rings fitted as were new stainless steel pushrod tubes.

This one has just arrived, and has come to us from long term storage.
It’s a while since we’ve seen one quite as original as this, and despite its age and mileage, it carries its original paint to both bodywork, and frame.
Please just ask if you’d like me to forward you some pics of that bike .....
