Hey all, the tank is the HPN at 43ltrs. Endo, I too worry about my pan, living in GA I don't want to loose my xtra oil but have thrown some ideas around. in the process of making a substantial bash plate for it and when i hole it, ill be putting the r80gs pan on it. just ordered the omega charging system, have stiffened up the front end and fork braced and toaster tan top clamped it. dual plugged, removed airbox guts, ah...and a bunch of other crap. thanks for the support...

Hardwaregrrl - Keep us posted on what you do with the pan. Sounds like you've done well taking care of everything else! I liked your description of the original fork brace - how did the toaster tan work out? Mine's not quite smilin', but it is due. Good luck!

ST for sale on IBMWR

[QUOTE=England-Kev]Do you, right now, as we type, own an R80ST----

on IBMWR
1984 R80ST red 23.5K mile


and mine by the way is 7761, not 7764 if you want to update the registry. bigger tank is more better. never minded the way it looked before, but I like it better with the GS tank and it seemed like I got a gallon and a half more in it.

Another lurker ST.

Hey all,

Another ST lurking in the weeds. At least that is where mine came from. I'll get details and pics pf the project up later tonite.

It's later...vin# 7407 1983.

Bought as a project bike from Bobs BMW in Maryland and took delivery of it at BMW Rally in Wisconsin in '07. It appeared that somebody had attempted to steal the bike at some point and had punched the ignition out, had a poorly spliced in voltmeter that was causing electrical issues, and had been left outside for at least 4-5 years i would guess. Needless to say I have my hands full. Here's a link to some pics from awhile ago. http://www.vinmoto.org/gallery/v/Vin...um03/album406/ Since these I have rebuilt the front forks, carbs, fitted a Ferodo brake disc, and new exhaust collector, and various bits and pieces. I'm hoping to send out the tank to get it relined and then get the bodywork repainted. Any advice on upgrades and or mods to the bike would be greatly appreciated.

PS ignore the year on the photo's i entered it incorrectly and just have not fixed it.

Hi Mr bpeckm,

being the proud owner of the black European bike, I can enlighten you a bit on this issue:

The oil pan was produced in small numbers in the late 1970s/1980s by the German Fallert company that gained quite some reputation for reliable tuning measures and customizing airheads. Among other products (fairings, monoseats and so on) they sold this 4,.5 litre oilpan which is much sought for these days. I found mine on ebay, paid an outrageous price for it, removed the paint and had it powder-coated.

Does this help?

greetings from Germany

Alfons

My R80ST

I've owned a number of different bikes over the years, but they were usually dirt bikes or dual sports. I was looking for a R80GS, but in my research I came across a comparison of the GS and ST and thought, "Wow, best of both worlds."

That same week I found a local ad (San Diego) for an R80ST from a guy who was moving out of the country. It was in great condition with 27k miles and I made him an offer. Before accepting my offer, he wanted to first ask his son if he wanted the bike, and a few (long) days later I bought my first street bike.

What a great ride! Not a rocket by any means, but its simplicity, bottom and mid-range torque, and especially the handling of the ST puts it in a class of its own. On top of that, it was not mass produced, so we own one of the few limited number BMW motorcycles made. What a score!!!

Norton73 I read your story, and I really like the way your wife's bike looks.

This is very much what I will be doing with my ST when I start the rebuild.
If I can find the solo seat and rack.

aeldk5g: that's a mighty fine looking bike. Congratulations!

I am not sure what your headlight flyscreen/fairing is: do you have any other information and more photos?


Tanksalot!




edit: just found that it was not just the one photo...duuuhhh... but, what is that fairing?
