1985 BMW R65LS
(Featured on 3rd June 2013)

Make: BMW
Model: R65
Year: 1985

Sellers original description:

The Bike Has Been Well Looked After Just Had Tappets And Oil Service, plugs, mot, carbs All Rebuilt Gaskets & Seal, diaphragms And Total Check Over As Not Been Used Much Lately,

But It Is A Clean Original Bike Not A Concours Bike But Good And Original.

A Good Start For Someone Whos Wants A Clean Usuable Classic Or For A Restoration To Concours.

It Has Full Stainless System As The Original Black Version Rotted Off.

The History And Mots Are There From New The Complete Tool Kit.

The Only Bit Thats Not Original Is The Seat And Exhaust It Was Lowered And Recovered.

But If Thats All You Can Fault It On You Dont Want 1 The Covers Readily Available Moto Bins Spares.

But The Bike Can Speak For Its Self.

I Have Seen Ordinary R65s Making Nearly £2k But This Is Even Rarer.

And Will Only Get More Valuable.

Better Than Money In Bank At Least You Can Play With This Over The Summer.

Over Winter Tuck Away And It Is Going Up In Value.

In 1982 In An Effort To Enhance The R65’s Image The Hans Muth Designed R65ls Was Introduced. 6,389 R65ls Bikes Were Produced, Which Featured A Triangular Shaped Pod Fairing And Instrument Housing Versus The Standard Naked Front End Of The R65. Furthermore A Different Rear Seat Featured Pillion Grab Handles Similar In Style To The Soon-to-be-introduced K Series Bmws. Different Model Transfers Were Used And The Only Colours Were Hennarot (red) And Polaris (silver).

Other Features Included:

Twin Disc Front Brakes In-lieu Of Single Disc.
Lower Front Handlebars For A Slightly More Sporty Seating Position.
Different Alloy Wheel Pattern - On Red Models Painted White.
Different Rear Drum Brake Size.
