Parts needed for ditched R80/7

Last week I covered my accident. Instead of going all over that again I'm going to go over parts needed. I know there's a section for parts, but so it doesn't get lost over there I'm posting here since it's an air head & my audience is right here.

Pulled forks & the bend is apparent right at the bottom triple tree. For now I'm going to straighten with my press. Know that's not the right fix to do, but the wheel will line up where it's supposed to.

Parts needed, all parts stock for a '78 R80/7: :

Front forks or at least the tubes for single caliper. Sliders still seem good.
Handlebars
1 front, 1 rear turn signal
Mufflers- both. Not worried about nice & shiney. Just round & correct
Gauge housing. Hopefully gauges still good, housing not so good.
Front fender fork brace
Headlight or lens. Reflector nearly as it should be & bucket good. Ears need a little work


I know there's more I'm not recalling, but these will allow my baby to roll miles again.

Anyone now of any motorcycle salvage yards in the Louisville Ky area? Noticed on flea bay that if the part has BMW on it these cats think it's gold & price accordingly. Been driving old Bimmers since '95 & know my way around that with people I know. Drive an '87 635 CSi. Just haven't found the same poeple who ride Beemers.

Please help me get my '78 R80/7 back on the road!!!!!!!!!!! I miss it greatly.


Thanks Dave at

Thanks for the tip, that's the kind of stuff I need to know about. I do know about them. Have ordered from them twice before the accident. Unfortunately their prices weren't very good for what I need now, surprisingly. My $$$ will go elsewhere, even the bay has better prices.
