1983 BMW R65

SOLD £1,960

A well-loved R65 with twin front discs, it still shows under 70,000 miles on the clock. The vendor has owned it for the last 36 years and has clearly loved it and used it for what it was intended.

Its last MOT has just expired (12th June 2020) and so it will need a fresh test - there were no advisories showing. The are a few invoices for MOTs and service from Vines of Guildford - official BMW dealers who last checked it over in June last year - presumably when they carried out the MOT.

Still carrying its correct plastic side covers as well as a pair of leg shields and panniers, we have not heard it running due to a flat battery - it has been standing for a while but was reputed to run well when it was last used.

These R65s are sweet bikes, safe and secure and an ideal way for the 'born again' to get back onto two wheels without the concern of handling 500bhp/ton!. A classic design with enough performance to put a smile on your face, this bike could be transformed into a really smart example with a little elbow grease.
