Question BMW R80G/S "Barn Find"

Hi all,

I have joined the forum to get advice from the people who know!

My Mum and Dad are downsizing to a smaller place and nead to clear out etc.

My Dad asked me to stick an old BMW bike on eBay for him - I googled it and discovered it may be a little special?

Details:

Totally standard 1983 BMW R80 G/S in Dunkel Blue (black seat)
3,600 genuine miles (2 owners from new)
It was running when it went in the garage 10+ years ago but prob wont be a starter now
I have not got it out to photograph it yet (it is surrounded with decades of other stuff) but will be getting at it shortly

The bike is in the UK


Any thoughts what it is worth as is and is it worth paying to get it running/brakes sorted etc to get more for it??


It is the same bike as this one below (picture is from a thread on here!!)







I appreciate any guidence/advise you can offer!

Thank you, Paul.
