Bought an R80/7

Dirk_S:
Funnyómy first two motorcycles were late 70s blue bikes. Now Iím back to it with thisín. Bought it cheap enough, but this pup will need a thorough barn find-style deep clean & makeover.






Hmm. While the initial idea obviously was to replace the Goose as my only/everyday bike, I found that doofy idea creeping backódo I really need a car? I went through a full winter driving my car maybe 3 times. And only once did I ďneedĒ to, when a friend and I went snowshoeing in the Whites. Hmm, indeed. Iíll refrain from word-vomiting that indecisive internal monologue this time around.

sdcr:
Iíve had a half dozen airheads, and while not the most exciting mounts, they can be fun mile munchers. They are also relatively easy and simple to wrench on.

That one looks to be in pretty good, restorable condition. Would this have the cable operated, front brake master cylinder, under the tank?

Correct. Once I hopefully get the brakes working, Iíll have to see how well that ATE works with my Sputnik sidecar. From what I read about them, I might be considering a Brembo conversion.

I HATED that cable operated MC.... otherwise, cool ride.

You're starting to like wrenching, huh.
It can be really satisfying.
You will enjoy the BMW
