1988 BMW R80 RT SOLD

.............. sorry, sold to Richard........ almost identical bike due in.......................

Another lovely BMW Airhead, just in.

It seems to be getting harder and harder to acquire nice, original airhead boxers, so we’re delighted to have just taken this one into stock.

We’ll be assessing and riding the bike over the next few days, but first impressions are excellent. The motor fires readily from cold or hot, with non of the usual Boxer smoke. Oil, charge, and neutral lights operate as they should. A quick spin out reminded me of just how effective the RT fairings are, and being the monoshock, the suspension, and those twin Brembo brakes up front make for assured and rapid progress.

This one is very, very clean and original, and despite the much used word “patina” cropping up in adverts nowadays, i think that in this case it fits perfectly. Even that lovely silver coachwork, complete with fading, hand painted factory coachlines, is original.

As i say, we’ll be riding and assessing the bike this week, so please feel free to give me a bell and register your interest, or have a chat about any of our other boxers. Please ring prior to travelling, as we’d hate to disappoint.

This is my personal BMW that I have owned for almost 9 years. Although Moto Borgotaro leans towards the Italian beauties, we also love BMW, in fact we are mildly obsessed with them. The R80ST is perhaps the best handling street motorcycle BMW ever produced, overshadowed by the R80G/S, the ST gives you a lightweight touring ...

My BMW was completely stripped down by the previous owner who is a qualified engineer and friend, before I bought it three years ago. It rides really well with a lovely exhaust note, stops and starts as it should. I have decided to reduce my collection, as I am struggling with the centre stands, due to lower back ...
