I have available for sale a great project bike opportunity, ideal for either a quick restoration or cafe racer project. The bike is a 1986 BMW R65 Monoshock in black with only 3,700 verified miles. The bike is numbers matching and I have a clean title in hand.
The R65 was last registered in 1995 in South Carolina. The Bike sat for a number of years in storage and was acquired in an estate sale in South Carolina from the original family of ownership. I have all of the required paperwork for registering the bike, Transferable South Carolina State title, Bill of Sale and court documentation from the owner's estate.
This is a Super Low Mileage, numbers matching R65 monoshock bike that is a perfect candidate for a quick restoration or cafe racer / bobber build. Mileage is verified on the title. There is very little if any surface rust on the frame and casing. The tank is in fantastic shape on the exterior with no dents or dings. There is a brand new factory spec battery installed. Rims are straight and true. The R65 turns and has compression and will crank and start with starter fluid.
What she needs to run:
Carburetors need to be rebuilt (I have two rebuild kits that will go with the bike)
Front Caliper needs to be rebuilt
Tires need to be replaced due to age
The fuel tank needs to be cleaned (there is some surface oxidation)
Some oxidation on the engine case that can be easily blasted and removed
I do not have the original battery side covers
I am firm on the price, please do not waste my time with low-ball offers or tire kickers. If the bike does not sell I will restore it myself in the fall. The bike is located in Northport, NY (11768). I am happy to show the bike weekday evenings or on the weekends. I would prefer a cash in-person transaction but I am willing to work with a shipper at the buyers expense of course. I am also happy to provide additional photos at request and can also give any prospective buyers a walk through of the bike on facetime before a trip to come and see it.
