    For some reason I've always liked these goofy car-engined BMW's. It's tempting, so pick it up before I do and hopefully you don't get shot or robbed if you do decide it's worth it.

    I don't have time to take care of an old bike, but you probably do!

    The throttle cable needs to be replaced. I bought one, but don't have time to sort that out...
    NEW Battery! Slightly newish tires.
    Runs well, few oil leaks but it's an old bike so that is to be expected.
    As noted in one of the pics, the odometer was replaced.
    (47,708 actual miles)

    This bike has a ton of potential to the right buyer.

    No Trades.

    Ad states clutch replaced 2000 KM ago. So that odometer reading is Km rather than miles I'm assuming. Imported bike?

    Clutch replacement wouldn't scare me. I glazed a clutch over going up a steep sandy wash, it just takes one bad incident to do it in.

    The headlight bracket is where the real value is.

    Can't even blame AMF for everything going on there.
    "Original condition," "usual improvements," and "custom touches" all in one sentence. Wow.

    Oh come on, we’ve trashed manufactures for years on their “Parts bin Specials”. ( I like the R80ST) The custom dash that houses the ignition and circuit breakers alone is probably $800-1000.



    I could be wrong.

    Build time 2 years, bike swap meets 17, spared no expense, really, no expense and half of the time in lockdown. Hell, Red and Green, this is a damn Christmas Special bike!

    I wonder if the missing piece of the front wheel is in his pile of stuff that was removed.

    Seller priced out the parts required!
    Probably cheaper to buy a good used one.

    Along with Bondo on the bend, and that wheel will be as round as the day it rolled out of the...crash.
    Seriously, I hope the rider was ok.
