    Bmw r65

    I found another Beemer to play with a couple of days ago, here's the little barn fresh beauty after I cleaned off a ton of dust and bird poop. It's a little ratty but runs perfectly. A few goodies should start arriving next week, I think I'll make a old fart's café bike out of it and go play on the twisty's

    I have a 84 R80 G/S that I bought new. Love these old airheads. That will be a good one to make a cafe out of. All the old airheads do. And you can sometimes buy an old RT pretty cheap as it cost so much to restore them to original condition that building cafes out of them makes for a neat bike on the cheap.

    I recently sold my R65, but it was one sweet bike. There's a good forum for them too. For me now at 75 trhe TW is a better fit. I have been having a blast on it this summer.

    Good find! I'm another airhead owner/admirer. I love the simplicity of them. Enjoy your new project.

    How well does it handle? i rode a 4 cylinder 80s Honda Sabre last year. Loved the howl and straightline speed but it couldn't handle at all. Felt like a big boat to me.

    I have been looking for one like that, but out here in Northern California one like that would go for $3,500 -$4,500. That's more than I can afford to pay for a project bike.

    Have fun!
