Here we have for sale a stunning professionally built BMW r80 Cafe Racer.
This bike is a one previous owner bike, that owner was Cumbria police force and is a rare full r80 police spec bike, with the BMW wire rims and Brembo brake combination. so rest assured it had been meticulously serviced and looked after in its previous life. I believe it was taken off the road in about 1992 and has only covered 21000miles, this will however rise a little if the weather is good.
Fast forward to 2018 the bike has had a full nut and bolt strip down and custom rebuild, some build pics can be seen on instagram @reynoldscustomcycles, this is a professionally built bike not some hack job.
Starting with the frame , it has been stripped of all unwanted metal , the battery tray and mounts , rear subframe etc all shaved and removed. Then new shock mounts were then fabricated up on the main frame loop (old ones go straight up onto old subframe) so the new gas shocks now lean forward creating a nice triangle shape to the rear, and a new one off subframe was then made for the seat really changing the overall character of the bike.
Once happy with all the geometry and everything welded up it went off to get dipped and stripped back to bare metal and professionally painted in deep gloss 2k black.
Front forks were stripped and lowered by approx 2" , taken back to bare metal and smoothed of rough casting marks and again painted the same as the frame in deep 2k gloss black and rebuilt with new gaitors seals and fork oil.
Rear swing arm and Bevel gear have been given exactly the same treatment as the forks all taken back to bare metal smoothed and painted and rebuilt with new fluids etc.
Wheels stripped and powder coated in gloss black New tyres and tubes fitted.
The engine was compression tested and showing good compression on both cylinders and runs like a swiss watch, it was stripped cleaned and professionally painted in matt black, airbox was removed and a custom cover made which now houses a new small lithium battery hiding underneath it along with re routed wiring. New oil , filters and spark plugs along with ht leads and caps fitted.
Carbs have been completely stripped sonically cleaned and rebuilt with new needles, jets seals and springs and then fitted with new pod filters and head mount rubbers. New fuel lines and filters.
Moving up top new clip on bars , handle grips clutch and throttle cables have been fitted and retained all the original switch gear.
New indicators fitted and a custom rear light and numberplate mount have been made.
Bodywork , custom seat trimmed in fluted black leather and a good solid petrol tank which again was taken back to bare meatal to check condition and then professionally painted along with the seat unit in the beautiful Classic VW capri Blue , this really is a stunning colour and looks beautiful in the flesh , more so than in the pics.
Brembo front brakes with new copper lines and fittings.
New gas rear shocks.
New Koso digital speedometer fitted.
New exhausts (sounds lovely)
All fluids replaced Engine oil and filter, gearbox oil, driveshaft oil ,bevel gear oil and brake fluid .
