No Reserve: 1978 BMW R80/7

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1978 BMW R80/7 is finished in black with a gold pinstripe and shows 29k miles. Power is provided by an 800cc air-cooled flat-twin paired to a five-speed manual gearbox, and in 2009 the bike received a mechanical and cosmetic refresh. The seller has added approximately 500 miles since acquiring it in 2011. This /7 is now being offered at no reserve with nine years of records and a clear Iowa title in the seller’s name. The seller believes that the bodywork was refinished around 2009 and describes that it was performed to a high standard. The Wienmann aluminum rims are wrapped in Continental rubber and a set of front brake pads plus an aftermarket rotor were installed by the seller in 2013. The type-247 OHV flat-twin was used by BMW from 1969 until 1995. The bike retains a set of points, Bing carburetors, and the factory dual exhaust. A service performed at the end of 2017 included the installation of a new battery and oil change. Receipts and records dating back 2009 are included with the sale.
