1985 BMW R80 Monolever - low mileage For Sale

BMW R80 monolever 1985

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:
Good bits
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
Bad bits
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!
Err…that’s it.

Bike is located in South Somerset.
