The time has come to sell a couple of my cherished BMW’s and make way for new projects. (No reserve)
The is my 1983 R65 which underwent a complete and thorough refurbishment in 2014/2015. Everything was taken apart and completely rebuilt with all new parts, all ordered from Motorbins/Motorworks and James Sherlocks here in the UK.
Below are some of the main upgrades and changes which were undertaken.

There are many more parts which have been changed on the bike and invoices for parts are included with the sale.
It really is a fun bike to ride around town on or on a good ‘b’ as the weight reduction helps with the smaller power of this engine. Retaining the airbox etc means that it revs freely in all the gears and runs as it should with good balanced carb setup.
The bike has only ever been used in the dry hence the reason why i’ver never needed to run mudguards as I prefer the look. Under the seat is a steel plate which add rigidity and protection for the subframe.
Buyer is responsible for collection of the bike from west london. I am also happy to liase with a motorcycle collection service if you wish to arrange one to pick it up once payment has cleared. (The bike will not be released until payment has cleared or been exchanged) Paypal or cash on collection is preferred.
Happy to answer any questions you may have
