Tell us about your bike

This bike started life as a BMW R80/7, but has gone through a gradual evolution over the years, with it being subject to plenty of TLC along the way. A comprehensive build and maintenance file is included, including a couple of spares and the original instruments (and the Haynes manual).

  It's absurdly pretty in the metal, so be ready for compliments and people asking you about the bike everywhere you go.    In the time I've owned her, I would say I finished the evolution, changing the rear end, completing the engine and overall period looks, and adding a pulse jet ignition system(!).   I've probably forgotten a few things, but I'll break the spec down as follows:   Engine and Transmission   Motorworks 1000cc engine upgrade (V5 still states 800cc) Mikuni carbs with cone filters Pulse Jet Ignition, although I'll include the original spark plugs http://www.pulse-jetignition.co.uk/ Airbox replaced with Flat Racer cast aluminium starter motor cover Stanless braided fuel lines with billet alu fuel filters Drilled gear pedal Pea shooter exhausts on a full stainless system (I'll include the reverse megaphones previously fitted).   Suspension and Handling   Twin Ohlins shocks at rear Original oil filled shocks at front Steering damper Original flanged alloy spoked wheels in pretty much perfect condition Avon Roadrider tyres in good condition (5mm front, 6mm rear) and tubes   Brakes   Twin drilled discs at front Braided stainless brake lines, billet alu reservoir Original drum at rear, drilled pedal   Controls and Electronics Koso GPS speedo (neutral indicator connected, but RPM not connected) - original included Upgraded rectifier Battery relocated under rear cowl - replaced with anti-gravity gel battery Chrome vintage rear lighting Yellow tinted headlight (can be reverted to white easily) Domino quick action throttle Tommaselli Gold Commander period clip-on handlebars Indicator buzzer   Body Ducati SS-style front fairing Pin striped (spare tape included) Original tank with aluminium race filler Handlebar-end chrome mirror Flat Racer Cafe Racer tail (knoscher style) and de-tabbed rear sub-frame.   Hopefully the pics do it justice. I'd love to keep her, but I need to make space.   Bike is located in North London (Muswell Hill). Buyer can collect, or I'm happy to arrange transportation at cost.
