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.
For some reason you managed to find a picture of my bike, it has 88,000 miles on it and that is a Keihan exhaust. The seat is standard, just used.
Now sell me the one you have so I'll have backup...LOL
