RARE BMW R80ST! Made 1983 & 84. Less than 4,000 world wide. The street version of the popular R80GS. The best BMW ever made for tight twisty roads!
The 1983 BMW R80ST was the first year of production. Originally conceived as a street version of their very popular R80GS, it was truly a bike before it’s time. Less than 1,500 were produced the first year, and about 2,000 the second, making this the rarest BMW every produced! A BMW this rare is destined to appreciate in value yearly.
This bike is seriously fun to ride! Weighing in at only 436 pounds with a full tank of gas, and a wheel base of less than 57”, it is effortless to throw it through corner after corner of the crookedist road you can find. If that road is patched and lumpy and full of potholes, no problem! Bring it on! The gearing makes it accelerate very quickly. The longer suspension makes the bike glide on the highway; the rear monoshock handles it all with ease! Need to get down the road on the freeway? The cam timing allows the engine to smooth out even more the faster you go, and the bike never wants to wobble! It would be the perfect commuter, or back roads exploration bike.
This particular BMW R80ST is one of our owner's "Spare" STs, from his collection. The mileage is low, and it runs GREAT!
This beautiful BMW R80ST has very low miles! We wanted to be sure all parts of this bike were good, or better; and that everything was functioning perfectly.
We performed a BMW Factory recommended 10k service, rebuilt the carbs, installed new original Continental braided fuel lines, new inline fuel filters, and we cleaned out and relined the fuel tank with RedCote.
We installed a new factory rebuilt handlebar mounted master cylinder, EGR kit, new steering neck bearings, rebuilt the front forks, new fork gators.
We R&R the engine rear main seal and oil pump o’ring, clean and inspect clutch and re-lubed the clutch splines. We installed new rear brake shoes, re-sealed the motor top end. New Dunlop tires and tubes, new emblems. We touched up the paint on frame, swing arm, and rear sub frame. New paint on the head light mount, brake leaver, center stand, air box, valve covers, timing cover, stator cover and timing case.
New transmission neutral switch and engine ground upgrade kit installed.
The chrome is shiny, the exhaust is solid. The paint is solid and still predominately shinny; there are some small touch-ups. There is a small ding on the right front part of the fuel tank. There is a small scratch on the front fender, top center near the front. There is a tool tray, but no Tool Kit.
