BMW R-Series description

Beautiful and rather rare 1984 R-80-ST.  It runs very well.  Has been garaged and started frequently, and ridden in the last 6 months.  I was told it is a 1983 even though the paper work says 1984.  Speedometer reads 373 miles.  It is stock except for:

It has been lowered for the needs of a doctor who owned it before we bought it back.

The seat, shocks and tires have been modified to lower the entire bike making it a very nice motorcycle for a shorter rider or as a first bike.

Nothing has been altered that cannot be taken back to stock.  The frame has not been altered at all.

Instrument panel has machine turning.

It lived near the beach for 3 years, so there is some paint oxidation as seen in the pictures.

Head protectors have been added

There is a new Clymer’s manual, new battery, and a second seat lock

Front fender to ground 26”

Seat to ground 32”

Back fender to ground 33”

Rear tire: Dunlop 491/120-90B18 71H

Front tire: Avon AM20 90-H18

Akront aluminum rims

If the bike is taken for a test ride, the asking price in cash must be left with me.

The bike can be picked up at my home near San Diego, or I will help the buyer with shipping arrangements.

Teaser: 2012 Japanese Literbike Shootout – Video

The last time we assembled the superbike offerings from the Big Four Japanese manufacturers to determine the alpha male model was 2009. The CBR won that confrontation, but a lot’s changed since then. For 2012 Honda revamped the CBR1000RR, Yamaha added traction control to the R1, the GSX-R1000 lost a muffler and last year Kawasaki introduced an all-new ZX-10R.

EICMA 2008: First Impressions

I have had a little walk around checking out the preparations for the show. I haven’t seen anything that I haven’t already seen or heard about previously, but here’s a selection from three of the halls. Yamaha are the only manufacturer to use an industrial crane to place some of its bikes up on high rise stands.
