BMW's first R80 model was the R80/7 introduced in 1977 as a replacement for the R75/7. Like its predecessor, the R80/7 was powered by BMW's traditional air-cooled flat-twin engine coupled to low-maintenance shaft final drive transmission. Following the introduction of the R80GS enduro bike in 1980, the R80 family was extended further by the R80ST and R80RT, the latter being a long-distance tourer equipped with the capacious fairing first seen on the R100RT. New for 1982, the R80RT was up-dated for 1984, gaining the wheels, forks and "monolever" single-sided swinging arm of the K-series.
Originally an R80RT, this BMW was rebuild to the standard R80 model using only original BMW parts. It is fitted with i.a.:
- Almost new exhausts
- Classic-style rocker covers
- Middle high handlebars
This machine is offered in good condition and Dutch registration.
