I'll be putting this for sale out on Cycle Trader in the next few days. Moving soon, and have to sell at least one of my two bikes (the other is a 2020 Kawasaki W800). In case there's some interest here, I'm thinking of asking $3500 for it:
1986 BMW R65, mono shock, black, 19,367 miles at the moment, runs fine.
Purchased in September of 2018 with 14,1xx miles, was told I am the third owner, and seller had bought it up in Wisconsin about a year earlier.
Mostly stock, as far as I can tell - appears saddle bags were attached at one time.
Rear Tire: Michelon Pilot, 120/90 - 18, about 50% tread remaining
Front Tire: Metzler Laser, 100/90 - 16, about 25% tread remaining
Serviced twice by dealer in Champaign, repairs made to front bearing, rear brake and tail light, rear turn signal. Fuel lines replaced.
Starts and runs fine, doesn't burn or leak oil.
Imperfections and known issues:
Fuel cap has been jimmied, lock doesn't work, but seats and screws in tightly
Light on tach is burned out, speedo light works fine, both gauges themselves work fine
slight nicks on front of gas tank where it may have been "tank slapping", covered with electricians tape when purchased
small tear in seat, a replacement seat was ordered and given to me by previous owner - have not installed it.
front brake is sluggish to fully retract, and turn off brake light - may be issue with inner portion of the brake line not allowing fluid flow, or the master cyclinder may need replacement. Both brakes function normally, the issue is just turning off the rear brake light afte release of the front grip.
Comes with extra seat, owners manual, National Cycle windscreen, tool kit.
Located in Paris, IL.
Please message me for more details, questions and/or contact info. I have some higher res pics available, but here's a few to get started. Thanks!
