I wonder if BMW can provide import info on a serial number?
Congrats on the cool bike!
His was made 12/1982 so it's an earlier bike than I would have thought by quick gander at the serial. 10/82 was first month of USA destined production and started -6207001. Would be interesting to know where #001 serial is now.

BMW Classics Group no longer has intact import records. I checked with Germany after getting my bike home. Have some info. about this over on
the R80ST Rider's Group (also links to 60+ factory photos). Started collecting the original importer data there to send back to Germany for what we can get. More ambitious of a project than I had led myself to believe at first
