BMW R-Series description

I am selling my 1980 BMW R100T Airhead. It is in absolutely amazing, near perfect condition, and is a rock solid reliable daily rider or tourer, though it would make an excellent collection piece as well. It is located at my house in Fort Collins, CO 80526. It has a clean CO street title, and is ready to ride or ship anywhere. It has always been covered and stored inside in a garage with a battery tender. Comes with an original matching Luftmeister fairing installed, and BMW hard luggage sidebags. Comes with service history documentation for last ~10 years.

Paint is a 9/10 on this motorcycle. It has been repainted once in Marrakesh Red. It is an excellent repaint, and I do not know the original color. It has been hand pinstriped with white stripes, which are excellent.  There is no rust on the bike anywhere. There are a very few small stone chips on the front fairing that have been touched up well and are not noticeable unless looked for closely. The headlight and turn signals work perfectly on the fairing. The fenders are in excellent shape with no wear or scratches. The tank is in excellent shape with no dents, dings, or scratches. Original BMW rear fender mudguard installed. The paint is excellent under the seat as well. Original tire air pump is installed on it's mounts, and the original storage box is there along with toolkit. Has original BMW grips in great shape. All rubber rider and passenger footpegs are original and excellent. Stebel air horn installed on left side.

Engine is in almost perfect cosmetic shape, and is in perfect mechanical shape. Starts right up and runs perfectly. No scratches or wear on engine or valve covers. 36250 original miles (I do ride it regularly, this will increase). Valves recently adjusted and are perfectly in spec. Just rebuilt carbs with all new gaskets and o-rings. No leaks or drips anywhere. Engine oil and filter are recent and fine. Driveshaft and rear drive oil are clean and recent. New spark plugs installed 5 miles ago. Each cylinder has 120PSI (see pictures), right in spec on compression test.

Tires are excellent and nearly new. Brake pads and are nearly new and in excellent condition. Recently flushed and changed all brake fluid. Needs nothing!

This 1980 BMW R100T is in absolutely excellent shape. It needs nothing at all and is ready to ride anywhere. Bike is located in Fort Collins, CO 80526, ready to ride or ship anywhere. I will assist with shipping as needed, though buyer is responsible for arranging and paying for shipping. I recommend haulbikes dot com, they are awesome and have great prices, I use them regularly. I require payment in full within 3 days of auction closing, unless we discuss otherwise. Payment by personal check is fine, though I must keep bike until check has cleared for at least 48 hours. I will accept PayPal personal transfer only. Please let me know if you have any questions, anytime. I can be reached at 619-985-2527.  Local inspection and pickup is fine as well, just give me a call.

BMW 1000RR and the Honda C70, are they indestructible?

Wed, 20 Apr 2011 00:00:00 -0700

I’ve managed 1374 miles on the Michelin Power Pures (mostly on track) and although we’ve had some decent temperatures they still look like new so there’s plenty meat left for another month at least. I’ve been running them at 30psi front and 32psi rear and find they warm up after a few miles but I wouldn’t say the temperature comes any quicker than any of the competition so it has to be four miles before I get brave. I’ve had a few out the seat moments with my BMW but I have got the rear suspension  set pretty hard (8 rebound,8 compression, two turns on pre load) and in slick mode, so 190bhp in first gear at the Knockhill hairpin is always going to be dodgy.

WSBK 2013: Monza Race Report

Mon, 13 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Eugene Laverty and Marco Melandri split a pair of victories at Monza but the most biggest news from the World Superbike weekend was a strange series of appeals after Race Two that saw Tom Sykes finish third, relegated to fourth and then reinstated on the final step of the podium. The unusual mix-up occurred after Sykes, sitting in third place, ran off track and into the run off area on Turn 5 on his final lap. The Kawasaki rider returned to the track again in third place where he finished ahead of Aprilia‘s Sylvain Guintoli.
