It is a pity that BMW decided to phase out the old airheads, but enthusiasts around the world keep them going.

Ride safely

Oooh la la.... tres elegante!

Might have started as an R80 with the lower exhaust and crossover? Gorgeous, nevertheless....and probably a screamer with that power!

Loving the 80ST
I love projects that take twice as much effort as should be needed. Should be an Airhead motto. (disston)
