Very smart BMW R80, that has been retro face lifted.

………………………………. SORRY, THIS ONE RESERVED FOR DEREK………………………

It’s a funny old world isn’t it. Back in my day, it was generally accepted that you could “facelift” your aging car or motorcycle to give it a more modern or less dated appearance. (Wheels, lights, bumpers, colours, etc). The current trend seems to be the reverse of this, with even the manufactures of current motorcycles giving more than a nod to their early models.

I have to say, this lightly retro’d R80 really works, and most importantly, looks almost entirely factory. The bike started life as a fully faired RT model, and the last owner has not only removed the fairing, he’s fitted the early chrome trimmed and grab rail dual seat, but also the early side panels. All of this has been achieved with absolutely NO modifications to the structure of the bike, so could be returned to the stock set up quickly and easily. The bike will be supplied with the original seat, tail piece, and side panels should you wish to do this.

This is, of course, the later monoshock model, and as such, rides superbly well. Even the early BMW “die hards” will accept that these later bikes have significant advantages over the early twin shock bikes. They have better suspension, better electrics, and very importantly, way better braking. This particular bike has also been upgraded to twin discs at the front, and being Brembo, are superb. It also boasts modern tyres, stainless exhaust system, etc. All in all, this a great riding and handling bike, with just a hint of the charm of the early bikes. What’s not to like !

The bike is off the button, ready to enjoy, and will come with a fresh MOT at point of sale. Extra pics, and a short video of the bike are available, so just give me a shout if you’d like more detail. YOUR classic BMW always wanted here at JTR Classic BMW, either in part exchange, or out right purchase. Current stock includes R80ST, R65LS, R80 (naked), R80RT, R100 (naked), R75/ 5, R75/ 6, and R90S.

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 ...
