1980 R65 Airhead. Approx. 39K miles. Asking $3,200

R65 is a short wheel base 650cc BMW. Very nimble around town and cruises down the highway.

Purchased this with 35k miles and in rough shape. I did a basic restoration which included the following work with the objective of keeping it as stock as possible:

- Removed engine from frame and powder coated the frame.

- Repainted and repaired the tank. Bike color was originally Bronco Brown with red pin stripe. Repainted in BMW black with inlaid white pin stripe.

- Removed emission stuff. (Have parts if you want to reinstall)

- Powder coated valve covers and air box

- Replaced steering head bearings and pivot bearings.

- Replaced pushrod seals

- Recovered saddle with Maine grade vinyl.

- Installed silicon valve gaskets

- Installed Bob’s BMW rear shocks and installed progressive front shocks as part of a recent rebuild.

- New AGM battery

- New fuel lines

- Front turn signals are not original as the brackets are unobtainable. Mounted to headlight bucket.

- Original exhaust which has dents on right side.

- Upgraded plugs and wires.

- Replaced original spring loaded side stand with Reynolds side stand. Includes center stand as well.

- Mustang windshield.

- Ignition and gas tank have separate keys.

Includes period correct BMW hard cases
