1985 BMW R80RT For Sale


This is a BMW R80RT mono, that although having been stored for a few years, is now running superbly, and has absolutely loads of potential.

The bike has been stored for a few years, but as with most of these great old bikes, some fresh fuel, a carb clean, and a battery saw it burst into life. The motor is particularly strong, with no smoke, no rattles, and oil and charge lights extinguishing as they should. A compression check is showing a strong and even 135 across both cylinders. Mileage is showing a very low 35k, but as with many of these old boxers, there appears to have been a clock change about 14 years ago. I think true mileage is nearer 50 or 60k.

I would describe the cosmetics as “mixed”. Although the frame is crusty in places, the paintwork is quite respectable, with much of it original. Tyres are good, the exhaust system is stainless steel (complete with central “H” section upgrade), and there are nice chrome pannier frames. There is a nice floating disc upgrade too. Alas, no panniers. Electrics are fine, with charging, lights, indicators, and idiot lights working as BMW intended. Even the heated grips work!. She’s off the button, hot or cold, and ticks over like a watch.

I’m busy with projects at the moment, and in the middle of moving premises, so I’ve decided that despite the potential in this one, i’ve decided to let it go. The bike will be sold as seen, will have an oil change service, but is being offered strictly as a “project” bike. I only say that because It does not have an MOT. I’ve now road tested the bike, and clutch, geabox, brakes, etc are absolutely fine, and it rides as it should. so, a VERY easy project., whether it be a tourer, or a custom.

There is a decent history file with the bike, containing the usual maintenance invoices and old MOTs. All in all, a great basis for a custom, or ride as is. Surely a great bike at this price! If you’d like to chat about any aspect of this, or any of my other Airheads, Please feel free to give me a bell on the details above. Stay safe, john.

This is my personal BMW that I have owned for almost 9 years. Although Moto Borgotaro leans towards the Italian beauties, we also love BMW, in fact we are mildly obsessed with them. The R80ST is perhaps the best handling street motorcycle BMW ever produced, overshadowed by the R80G/S, the ST gives you a lightweight touring ...

This bike is in good, clean condition. I’ve owned it for 4 years. It was a bit scruffy so I stripped it and had the frame and wheels refurbed. I fitted a new clutch while the engine was out of the frame. Tank, fairing and mudguards are original finish, and the front mudguards is scratched. The friend from whom I ...
