This 1986 BMW R80 is powered by a 797cc opposed twin paired with a five-speed transmission and was refinished in white during purchase by me. Equipment includes an enclosed driveshaft, a two-up seat, a BMW S fairing, a Koni monoshock, a luggage rack, Brembo front disc brakes, dual Bing carburetors, 18″ Y-spoke alloy wheels, and heated grips. The bike was by me in California in 2019 and subsequently relocated to Oklahoma in 2021. Work done by me included overhauling the speedometer and carburetors and replacing the battery, tires, valve covers, ignition wires, and the exhaust collector and headers. This R80 has the BMW-branded side cases, owner’s and repair manuals, spare and removed parts, and an Oklahoma title in my name. The bodywork was refinished in BMW Alpine White (300) in 2020 following an accident that damaged the fuel tank and right-side valve cover. Additional equipment includes a BMW S fairing with a clear windscreen, a front mud flap, a two-up seat, black aftermarket mirrors, a luggage rack with an integrated passenger grab handle, and both center and side stands. The lock on the fuel tank cap is inoperative and that a dried adhesive tube is stuck to the interior of one of the BMW-branded side cases. Additional blemishes include corrosion on the frame, a previous repair to the fairing, and flaws in the paintwork on the right side cover and front fender. Y-spoke 18″ alloy wheels were mounted with Kenda tires by means. Suspension is handled by a conventional leading-axle fork as well as a Koni monoshock mounted to a single-sided swingarm that doubles as the driveshaft enclosure. Braking is handled by twin front discs with Brembo calipers and stainless-steel brake lines in addition to a rear drum. Note bubbling paint on the front brake master cylinder. The 140-mph MotoMeter speedometer was overhauled in 2021 and is positioned alongside a matching tachometer with a 7,100-rpm redline, while a volt meter and an analog clock are set in the fairing above. The bike is equipped with aftermarket heated grips controlled by the switch to the left of the ignition. The five-digit odometer is believed to have rolled over once by me and now shows 19k miles, approximately 20k miles of which were ridden by me. True mileage is unknown. Intermittent operation of the horn and the right turn signal switches. The 797cc opposed twin is equipped with an electric starter, replacement valve covers, and a replacement two-into-two exhaust system with a crossover pipe. Factory-rated output was 50 horsepower and 42 lb-ft of torque. Work performed by Black Kat Motorwerks of Los Angeles, California, in 2015 included replacing the battery and ignition wires as well as cleaning the dual Bing carburetors and fitting replacement O-rings. The oil was changed in preparation for the sale and the engine intermittently smokes upon startup. Power is transferred to the rear wheel through a five-speed transmission and an enclosed driveshaft. An owner’s manual, a maintenance manual, BMW-branded side cases, and spare and removed parts will accompany the motorcycle. No keys to lock the panniers.
