1978 BMW R80/7 (BLACK) - $4500 (Nashville)



This is my beautiful 1978 BMW R80/7. She is a spectacular bike with the perfect amount of haul-ass and sex appeal. I vomit a little when people describe their bikes as "head turners," but people actually stop what they are doing to check out this bike. Ambulances cancel 911 calls. Cops close traffic so you can run red lights. Grandmothers punch their grandchildren in the mouth just to keep them quiet so they can concentrate on the 2 wheeled majesty of this BMW. This is 100% true.

Here's what you need to know:
The bike has 2 removable BMW suitcases included. They retail at $600.
Plexiglass windshield mounts are on the forks and bars. I have the windshield if you want it too.
A rear carrying case (not pictured) bolts to the rear rack.
I have the right side rear-view mirror. I took it off because it looks cool.
I have 2 helmets (a full face and open face) included (both XL)
I took the bike to Bloodworth for a complete fluid change and tune up in April 2013
Tires are in great shape.
Rides 2-up with no problem.
Everything works.
Everything is awesome.
You will be more awesome when you sit on it.

Give me a call to begin your life transformation: HENRY at (SIX ONE FIVE) 973-2oo4

And this from what I assume was an aspirer to awesomeness:

1978 BMW R80/7 (BLACK) - $4500 (Nashville) - $2000 (clunker)
I gotta say, Henry, you post about this bike like it's the coolest thing since motorcycles were invented, but....

this bike is a huge turd. You know it and I know it. Anyone who looks at it close enough would know it. So list it for a fair price and sell it. You're describing it now like it's perfect, when in fact it's a PILE of shit.

I dunno. That guy sounds like a hater. Aside from the cracked speedo glass, old tires and sorta wonky looking odo reading, that thing looks pretty clean. Maybe not $4500 clean, but pretty clean. Gotta say that flat-top Bings never made anything look cool though.

On that R80/7, is the front fender on backwards? I agree with the above poster, despite numerous faux pas (valve covers on wrong sides too), it looks like a $3000 bike to me, as long as internals haven't been goobered.

Amazing...almost no punctuation in that whole thing, but somehow he still managed to use apostrophes correctly.

The fact that our government allows this man to operate a motor vehicle is scary.

I'd say it's got more than an electrical problem...

At some point you must just decide to give up and roll it into a ditch and walk away, but some of these guys never say it's over, and just keep trying to sell this stuff.
