79 r65 for sale

Due to age (80) and a little pressure it looks like it is time to sell my 79 r65. I bought it new and it has an 851 Vinola kit, a Don Vesco Rabid Transit fairing, never been down.  Don't know what it is worth. Would like to see it go to someone that would appreciate the bike. Thanks Andy

Do you have any pics on line?

My 1979 was the best bike I ever owned, wish I had an option at the time and kept it.

Joe, noticed you are in CA. if you have a contact in this area( I am on I-70 halfway between St. Louis  and Terre Haute Ind. perhaps they could look at my bike.  I'll have to  learn how to post pictures. I have really enjoyed my travels on this bike.  Andy

Andy, it sounds like a really nice bike.  I should think you could get around $3000, at least (I really like the fairing...).
Saddlebags?  Original seat, or touring seat?  (don't want the original!)
I am in Indianapolis, so I am going by what we see in this area.
I would buy it from you, but I have no 1) money or 2) garage.

Rob,  The bike has the original BMW bags and seat. The color, I think, was called Bronco B Thanks, Andyrown.  I bought the bike from T&B cycle in Linton, Ind.  They are no longer a dealer,but Wilbur still has his shop and services and sales used BMW bikes.

In that case, I would bounce this question off of Wilbur!

Mine was Bronco Brown, as well.  I want yours...

Actually, I was flashing back to fork seals and wheel bearings (and thousands of other systems), and I'm not sure I am ready to go back.

Would make my 40 minute interstate commute more interesting, though...  Wink
