This is the sort of original, unmolested, well maintained BMW everyone just wishes they could find. Everything works as it should, everything is oiled and greased just as you would expect.
The model is the twin shock with the Brembo brakes, again just what the classic airhead BMW enthusiasts are looking for.
This bike starts well, rides well, and even stops well for an 80s bike. Remember brakes have come a long way since 1983, these twin disc Brembos work exceptionally well, but it will not stand on its front wheel like a modern sports bike.
No rust, no corrosion, good chrome, decent Continental tyres, even the clock works.
Let's be serious this is a 33 year old bike, the last owner looked after it very well, but it does show some signs of use. A few paint blemishes and a few scuffs. It's not 100% perfect, but it is very good. Importantly the mechanicals are perfect.
The perfect modern classic to ride and enjoy having loads of life in the engine and being far from scruffy. There are very few old bikes that are this comfortable, this easy to maintain or this practical. Spares supply is fantastic through any of the specialist BMW suppliers and surprisingly well priced.
