1983 Classic BMW R65 Air Head

A fine example of an unmolested classic BMW. Great start for a restoration or use her as your daily rider.

All systems work properly and it runs great. Recently cleaned/rebuilt carbs, freshened up the forks, a new seal in the rear drive and the tank has been cleaned. Rear shocks are new, tires are old but still grippy with no weather checking, and other new bits and pieces along the way as needed. Paint and seat are original but there is a big dinger in the tank from a fall in the garage (yes it ruined my day!).

With panniers and windscreen as shown along with manual, spare oil filter and misc. bits. Registered in South Dakota but currently in Arcadia, 51430.

Someone will ask so... I've recently retired and living"on the road" in my toyhauler RV for another year or so, at least until I can find a place I'd like to settle down. Tho possible, it's sometimes challenging to wrench on the bike with the limited resources I have available. And... seeking more Adventure I've purchased a new CB500X that will allow me to wander further more reliably. There's only room for one, reluctantly selling the beemer! (or she goes in storage for a while)
