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.

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

Justin,  I would really like to see the bike go to a rider that knows what it is and would appreciate it.  It is not on e-bay or a Craig's list.  I think before I do that I will just make a shop ornament out of it.  I rode in a sidecar ONCE, at a rally near Shilo, and swore never again.  Ride often,stay safe, Andy

Andy,  I have never drove or ridden in a chair but have been tempted to get one so the wife can get back to riding after messing up one of her hamstrings.

They are different, for sure.  I'd never tried one until I got the R65.  It takes some practice and re-training your brain from two wheels but I love it.

I drove a friends rig back in the early 80ís. I have always wanted one.  I found out that the wife could not seat on a bike very long after her car wreck. Bought my Ural December of 2016. This has been the most fun I have had on a motorcycle. Have gone places that I would have never gone on a a two wheel motorcycle and the wife has in joyed riding more than on the back.

Sidecaring is great!  I rode mine (/2 conversion w/R100S engine and Velorex 560 car) for around 7 years.  Commuted in the winter on it.

The fairing would make a very pretty rig.

People SEE sidecar rigs!

Andy, I am interested.  I have seen no messages for some time now and hope that the bike is not yet sold.  I already have a Rabid Transit fairing and have been looking for an R65 to mount it on, but buying a complete outfit makes some sense because all the assembly and fitting has been done, and because I could also sell MY Rabid Transit to one of the inmates here.  I am in Nashville, TN and would be able to drive easily to Illinois.  Please respond on this site, or call me at 615-557-8385.

Thank you, Tom Martin

Tom,  I still have the bike and you would be welcome to come up and  see what you think.  I have been kind of laid up due to a broken femur that happened officiating a basketball game which proves to the wife that I am not only old but just a little dumb.  cell ph. 217-821 3554    Andy

Andy, sorry to hear about the broken femur.  Hope the wife also realizes that it's a great thing that you're so active.

Got the number; will call later today or this evening.
