1984 R80RS, Dark Blue Metallic
Some of you may remember this bike from last Winter. The guy who bought it really liked it, and REALLY detailed it out nicely! His wife changed her mind and decided that she DID want to go riding with him, so he traded it back in for a larger bike to make her more comfortable. So, you people out there that were kicking yourselves for missing out on it now have a second chance!
This very clean R80RS started life as a R80RT, and was converted to a RS when it was several years old. Original R80RS decals were obtained from Europe to make it “authentic”. Paint is in very good condition. Bike is clean and very well cared for. Metzeler tires are in good condition. Exhaust is very nice. A Tool kit and Owner’s manual is included. Mileage is 51,484.
We have done a carburetor rebuild and a 10K Service, including changing all fluids and flushing the hydraulic brake system. We also did a cam chain and tensioner replacement so it runs really quietly now. We also replaced the fork seals and installed new fork boots in the RS fairing.
The bike is ready to ride for the season. Extras include Telefix fork brace and Koni shocks for improved ride and handling, as well as a Corbin Canyon Dual Sport seat with a factory optional “grab rail” rack. A pair of Krauser saddlebags are installed.
This bike would make an excellent daily commuter or a weekend tourer. The 800cc motor has plenty of power for two up riding or for pushing it hard through the twisties.
