BMW R-Series description

European model (  Long wheelbase ) has spent  early years  in the Netherlands and Portugal . I have  the foreign plates  and documentation. also I have the import papers.  The bike is  stock & original  repainted once  in the original Algerian blue. " clear stateside title.  This is a rare  model and  color
Owned for 33 years .by one person  Who kept it in a heated  garage. The bike has very little corrosion  and the paint is in good shape. It is a not cconcours,, so you can actually ride it" there are minor  imperfections in the paint..

 I do not have the key for the seat  and fork locks.

 Both. Center stand. & kickstand

The seat is almost perfect . And believed to be original 

I  purchase the bike in March of this year  and did  a thorough cleaning on it. It has never been dropped nor does it have any Bondo on the tank or fenders. 

I planned on keeping this one ,  as I have had up to seven of these bikes  at any given time. ..""... but  Health concerns are keeping me from riding "

The numbers are matching  2996984 
 It is a good set of Metzlers  with full tread
 This is his last year for electrical and kickstart 
It has  the headlight guard"....... and a Chrome side rack  for mounting luggage . The battery is New and tray is  clean and it was repainted.  Everything under the tank  is clean 
and fresh
The exhaust is in good shape but. mostly original pipes
Mechanically it is in sound shape  and runs like a BMW should. May need to have the Idle  adjusted if taken to lower altitude.   It is currently in New Mexico. At   Almost 7000 '  above sea level .
