Beschreibung

1982 BMW 649cc R65LS
Registration no. WDG 299X
Frame no. 6351594
Engine no. 6351594

BMW introduced the R45 and R65 in March 1978. Looking very much like scaled down versions of BMW's larger models, the duo shared identical cycle parts and featured sharper, more modern styling. Few changes were made before production ceased in 1985, though for the last few years BMW offered an additional R65LS model, which featured a cockpit fairing, restyled seat unit, black exhaust system and twin disc brakes. Owned from new by the current vendor, this R65LS has been ridden to the Isle of Man TT (in 1982) and in 1987 to the Continent for his honeymoon, and was last on the road in 2002. Re-commissioning will be required before it returns to the road. Currently displaying a total of only 14,437 miles on the odometer, the machine is offered with V5C document. A set of panniers comes with it.
