This is a rather splendid example of a twinshock R65, that i had the pleasure of selling to its last owner a couple of years ago.
It was purchased by the previous owner from Via Moto in Chesterfield in 2015, and he decided that he would complete a comprehensive re fresh of the bike. The work was documented, and diary of the work, along with a large history file of invoices accompanies the bike. Hopefully, the pictures give you a flavour of just how nice an example of the increasingly popular R65 this is. Documents confirm that mechanically, the engine was comprehensively refreshed, including timing chain set, piston ring set on Nikasil bores, all seals, gaskets, etc. Drive train was refreshed with new driveshaft and clutch assembly. Whilst this was being completed, the rolling chassis was blasted and powder coated, including the alloy wheels, which were finished in striking black gloss, and wrapped in new, modern tyres. Obviously, battery, brakes, oils, filters, fork seals, fluids, etc, we’re also replaced. Lots of stainless steel was used, including the exhaust system and engine bolts. The twin disc set up and the heavy duty crash bars are also nice touches.

The end result, as i say, is one very smart R65. I find these models are increasingly in demand, as they are a physically smaller package than the R80 / R100 range, and yet still produce a very respectable BHP of almost 50, just a little short of the much heavier R80 in fact. Barely ran in since the completion of all of the work, the selling price barely covers the cost of the restoration of the bike, so a genuinely good buy i believe, and with only four previous owners in approaching forty years.

The bike will come with a fresh MOT for the new owner, and ready to go. Discounted delivery available via a courier i have used and trusted for many years, and even at this price, I’ll consider YOUR classic bike in part exchange.

Please drop me a note, or give me a bell on the details below, if you’d like more detail, or would like to chat about BMW Airhead ownership. All the best, John.

A serious motorcycle for those who really know their stuff…. The R75/6 ran a five-speed transmission and front disc brakes as opposed to the drum brakes and 4-speed of the outgoing /5.
