PICS: MAX BMW Custom/Restored R80GS Dakar...

This 1981 R80GS Dakar was abandonned at another BMW dealer, so we gladly purchased it from them and began tear down. Bike has been totally gone through and also has the 1000cc Siebenrock big bore kit (dont worry,we obviosuly kept all stock parts too), Siebenrock race exhaust, factory BMW solo seat and rack, and also the stock size tank and orange seat. A lot of these parts can still be bought new from BMW (including the Dakar tanks).

Just putting the final touches on the bike this week. The first Dakar we've done, and I'm sure not the last! Needs a few minor things tuned/finished but it's about 90% complete. Stop by the CT store and check it out!

(sorry for the semi-crummy pics, they were done on an iPhone until i get my real camera back, but works for now)





























And finally a little vintage shot i did with Instagram

I'll second that as well...you guys are my primary parts supplier. Just wish I could stop in to admire this fine bike and the rest of your inventory.
Also, a big thanks for sponsoring Rick's Rendevouz in Laurel Springs, NC this year
