Lot 201 - 1984 BMW R80 RT Café Racer
|Result||Sold - £9,104|
The BMW R80 RT with a two-cylinder four-stroke 800cc boxer engine and shaft drive to the rear wheel was manufactured from 1982 to 1995. As a touring bike (RT for touring), it was equipped with a sweeping full fairing and a high windshield. The engine with 797cc and 50bhp power came from the BMW R80/7. Between 1982 to 1984, essentially the RT was a slimmed down version of the 'bigger sister' R 100 RT.
This beautiful bespoke Café Racer build around the BMW R80 RT is finished in custom pearlescent Lamborghini orange (Arancio Atlas) with powder coated frame, wheels, swing arm and forks with custom tan Alcantara seat. Built to what can only be considered a professional standard and such a high specification, using only the very best parts, this example was invited to be displayed at the London Bike Shed Show. Featuring Motogadget Motoscope display and M-Lock keyless ignition, Öhlins adjustable suspension, a lightweight lithium battery, FlatRacer fork with pre-load adjusters and rear sets, Hagon progressive fork springs and adjustable handlebars with integrated indicators. Offered with a substantial history file including detailed photos of the build, old MoT test certificates, invoices and original handbook/service book, this two previous owner example is privately entered with a recent MoT test certificate and will stop people in their tracks!
