1980 Very interesting BMW R80 / RS fairing. SOLD
,,,,,,,,,.....THANKS FOR ALL OF THE INTEREST,.........................................
..................BUT NOW RESERVED FOR AJAY.............................................

ThIs R80 was suppllied by the legendary Freddie Frith Motorcycles, to it's first owner, in March of 1980.

We acquired the bike from it's 80 year old owner who was hanging up his leathers, and he's owned the bike for over 20 years. Both old and new log books are present in the original folder, confirming that there have been only two previous owners from new......pretty amazing for a 37 year old motorcycle. The original service / handbook from Freddie Friths is also in the folder.

Equally interesting , is the fact that the speedometer shows only 21200 miles from new. Now to be honest, i would describe the bikes cosmetic condition as quite shabby, but there is a raft of old MOTs, right from the very first in 1983, that support the fact that this mileage is, in fact, correct.
It also has to be said that the mechanical condition is superb. She fires first touch of the button, from hot or cold, with non of the exhaust smoke usually associated with these old boxers. Oil, charge, and neutral lights operate exactly as they should, and a 4 or 5 mile test ride showed that gearbox, clutch, etc are spot on.

The previous owner was unsure as to when the bike was upgraded to RS spec, complete with flat bars and full, genuine fairing, but is was clearly over twenty years ago.

Invariably, there are a few negatives. The fairing and side panel paintwork doesn't quite match the tank, seat and mudguard, and has a few marks. (I suspect that the tank, seat and mudguard are in fact original paintwork). The front brakes, probably due to lack of use, can drag a little........and that's about it.

On a brighter note, she's fitted with an as new pair of Pirelli Stradas, stainless header pipes, a brand new battery this week, and a brand new MOT. (So obviously lights, indicators, etc, are also fine). She also comes with a period set of Sigma panniers and frames, complete with key to lock them to the bike.

So there it is, an interesting old Boxer......shabby in places, but mechanically spot on, and with great provenance. Now we're always in the process of rebuilding one of these old Airheads, and to be honest, we're undecided which way to go with this one. It's mileage and provenance suggests that it should be restored as a standard machine, or even used as is. However, it's difficult to escape the fact that these great old bike's are now in high demand as a basis for customs.

Viewing and inspections welcome and encouraged, and please feel free to ring for a chat with anything "Airhead" related.
