Unless it was a late model 77 transition bike. But yes, a VIN will confirm the year.
Not CL but this seems like a pretty good deal for a pristine LS...
Wow does that absolutely KILL the lines of the bike!!!! That 3' gap between the seat and tank is awful
If anyone is in need of a pair of 1972 R60/5 heads, this gentleman in northeastern PA has a pair for cheap. He is asking $25 for the pair. I have no need for them, so am passing them along.
He also has an '85 K100 long block with 52k miles on it for free if picked up.
Dang, I would but he wont ship......
BMW 1983 R80ST - $3800 (vero)
Seems like r80st bikes dropped in value? They use to go for more. I dunno if that's near top dollar for them
I want to buy it but he hasn't answered his email and there is no Ph.#.........
Giv him time. He’s 70 years old. If it’s gone they’ll always be another. Like mine when it’s ready!
Phone # is in the listing. See below. Buy it...before I have an excuse to take a road trip to FL.
Depending on mileage and history top end (valves/seats) might need attention
Good candidate for a paralever front end conversion, if new owner wants a more robust set of forks and better off road manners
I just brought home an '04 R1100S project last week; would be in the doghouse if I bought this one too but it does look sweet. Why is it that you always run across the most tempting deals right AFTER you buy another bike?
1985 R80 with a parabellum - 37K - asking $3,500 by a long-term owner - eastern Pennsylvania
As is often the case, there is more (or less) than meets the eye. Reply from seller:
Not much on history previous owner had it for years and loved the bike. The tank started to leak so he stopped riding it. I sealed the tank with a tow part epoxy by Caswell plating. The speedo has 14k on the odometer. The speedo did not work so I replaced it. No tool kit does have tool box. It has been repainted silver. New master cylinder,tires and tubes, battery and seat cover last year.
I'd be leery of the odo mileage.
A bike that has very low mileage very well can have a leaky gas tank. Water in the atmosphere that condenses inside the tank runs down the sides and collects on the bottom where it proceeds the rust out the seam area at the bottom of the tank. Same thing can happen top a bike that is ridden if the water collects inside the tank it it is not cleaned out regularly. Rusted gas tank seam on the bottom has been a problem for Airheads for may years.
As much as we hear riders complaining about alcohol in the gas I think it has helped eliminate the water in gas problem. Oh we still get that but only if there is a lot of water I think. Small amounts are picked up by the alcohol and passed thru the system.
I'm not a chemist so I have no idea if I'm right or wrong about this. I think I see less water in my carbs these days. Anybody else?
I will love to have a LS
BMW R80ST - $2950 (Yuba City)
