There's a '79 R65 in Ibmwr right now for $4200
You can do way better than $4200 for a R65.
Put this into Google and knock yourself out --> intitle:bmw r65 -classifieds site:craigslist.org
The Rally they have in Morocco would probably be cheaper to get to but don't know what the entry fees run.
When you get time we want your thoughts on Paul's bike. Is he still building frames? Is it an R100gs frame? Would you try building your own? Is the R65 engine where a lot of the weight savings is?
I busted up my only good shoulder while you were out having fun so I am out of commission again but bike building could keep me occupied for awhile.
Glad you made it back in one piece.
