1984, my first Beemer, R65LS boxer twin with Bing carbs, bought it for R4500 with 8000kms on the clock!  Ended up putting knobblies on it and cruising gravel.  Next Beemer was the R80GS, was more suited for the gravel worx.

hell yeah! :-\ it actually belonged to my uncle up on the farm - i always wanted to buy it off him but it just didn't work out that way :'(
when i seriously started shopping my heart was set on getting one but i found the nxr for a decent price and the timing was just right.

An old Warrant Officer in the Navy gave it to me all in parts in a box.  That's not actually the pic of my bike but it was exactly the same.  It was a Zundapp that you had to pedal to get it going  :D  Pedal = first gear.

My first baaik, I was 2 or 3 ? It was a police special and made some serious hp  :D


That is a clone of my Z750 twin in the background... that twin had oodles of torque.

Peter, that Zundapp is one classic-looking bike :thumleft:

The twin shocks at the back don't look like they actually do anything, though... :patch:

My 1983 CBX 550. Photo taken in about 1992 with about 120 000k's on the clock and still going strong.
