I recently figured out I don't have enough time to go offroad riding anymore and that my DRZ sucked for the highway - so I sold it. One of the candidates for a replacement is a 1987 BMW R80 that's owned by a local mechanic friend. Unfortunately I don't know much about airheads as I've only ever owned a Funduro, and I could use some advice when it comes to inspecting it. I won't get a chance to ride it until late next week. It has pretty low mileage (for an airhead at least), at about 19K miles. The original owner was an older guy, and he seems to have taken good care of it. The inside of the tank is spotless and will be coated before I buy it. Steering was tight and there wasn't any clunking. Tires are decent and have plenty of life left. Supposedly everything works as it should. The final drive seems to have very little play in it and doesn't make any ugly noises when turned by hand. It comes with all major service done. Aesthetically it's just so-so - no dents in the tank, but there's a scrape on the bottom edge (no metal damage). There are some minor scratches and stuff, but nothing bad. Looks like it's been dropped once or twice, but never really laid down. No bags or frames. So, inmates, what else should I be checking? He's asking $3,000 (firm) - does this seem a bit high? Should I be paranoid about the circlip fix not having been done?
