1981 BMW R65, 1981 BMW R65 superbly set up for the race track. This is a very well sorted BMW R65 that was built to race in AHRMA's Vintage Superbike Lightweight class. I bought the bike from a Southeast AHRMA racer that I had some good battles with in another class on our /5's. This was a pretty well set up bike when I bought her. The suspension was well tuned for my 195 pounds in leathers and she felt good to me. The set up was confirmed by tuner Dave Moss at a test day. She has the San Jose frame brace installed. I beefed up the front brake as the set up that was on her did not have nearly as much power or control as I like in a front brake. We rebuilt the cylinder heads, rebuilt the transmission for smoother shifting, and performed a series of thorough mechanical inspections. I would expect this to be a reliable race bike. The cockpit is well set up with a tach and shift light. The footpegs are set up where the passenger pegs would be on a stock bike. This is a great set up for a rear set effect. The bike also comes with a small kit of spares and the original belly pan that came with the bike. We prefer the aluminum belly pans so we made the one that's on the bike now. She performs well on the track. With 46 HP coming from a stock motor with upgraded carbs and dyno tuning, this is a good combo of performance and reliability. The bike starts easily and idles nicely when warmed up. If someone wanted to build a high performance custom street bike, this would be a very good platform for such a project as it comes with a clean street legal title. I'm leaving the Motoworks livery on the bike, but I will have my graphics guy decal the bike with your sponsor logo and race #'s as part of the sale. Call Motoworks at 312-738-4269.
