6370413 -1982 BMW R65LS MotoSport Custom 1 of 1., White. Under 11,000 miles! Perfect condition
This Unique, Clean, and Beautiful BMW is VERY striking! It draws attention wherever it goes.
The R65LS (LUXUS SPORT) was designed by Hans Muth. The BMW R65LS is not a bike you'll see every day. With just 6,389 built from 1981-1984, this bike represents a time of stylistic experimentation that has, in part, gone on and contributed to BMW's present-day designs.
One BMW color option was a brilliant, gleaming henna red set off by white cast-alloy mag-type wheels and black powder-coated pipes.
This R65 LS has been customized. First a brilliant white paint job with the tri-color livery of the BMW MotoSport, first used on a 1978 BMW R100RS. The white wheels were then painted a brilliant Silver for a little contrast. The black exhaust system has been replaced with a set of chrome MAC Mufflers to give it room to breathe, and a throaty rumble, without being obnoxious.
We performed a BMWS Factory Recommended 10K Service. We rebuilt the forks and Installed new Steering Neck bearings. We rebuilt the carburetors, resealed the motor top end, Replaced the engine rear main seal and oil pump O’ring, inspected and rebuilt the clutch, to eliminate the rust that had collected on the friction surfaces, and lubed the clutch splines. The front Master Cylinder was replaced, front caliper pads replaced with SBS, and the rear brake shoes were replaced with new Ferodo units.
A modern Dyna coil was installed for hotter spark, and the spark plugs, spark wires, and Metal caps were replaced. New Original Factory Continental cloth wrapped fuel hoses were installed.
New Dunlop Tires were Mounted and Balanced. New Progressive Suspension 1700 Shocks were installed. New hand Grips installed. Assorted rubber boots, dust covers, switches, etc. were replaced.
The frame paint was touched up as needed, engine covers and assorted small parts repainted.
The riding position is Mild-Sporty and quite comfortable; not radical or crouched as many sport styled bikes are.
This bike is ready for Friday Night Ride-ins at the Burger Joint, Stylin’ on Main Street, Rallys, Events, or spirited long weekend rides on twisty back roads. Add some Soft Luggage or BMW original hard saddlebags with mounts and you could be ready for Touring on the Interstate.
