Behold: the BMW R80 Project 4 – a modified R80 by German builder Elemental Custom Cycles: lowered restrung forks; a rebuilt 797cc boxer engine, 17” wheels front and back; Brembo brakes and Motogadget instrumentation. In short, a comprehensive road-going remake of a 1980s classic.
He’s Beem there done that.
My car, (her name is Sabine, say hello) has a service history which is longer than the findings of the Chilcot inquiry, and is currently wearing new Pirelli Cinturato P7s’.
I bought her two years ago at the beginning of my quarter-life crisis, but as I approach my 30 and the status-anxiety has disappeared, I’ve decided that the time has come to say goodbye.
Whilst Sabine is mechanically perfect, she’s currently undergoing a period of minor electrical strife, so the roof isn’t retracting under power and the airbag light has illuminated. With that in mind I’ve priced her accordingly, allowing you to grab a bargain before the summer and the annual 40% convertible price increase.
(Open to ‘swapping’ offers for another 08+ ultimate driving machine (BMW), something else from Germany which is rear-wheel drive, something to tow a horsebox, or at the most basic, something more James May as opposed James Bond.)
Thanks John S
Spotted in Rotorua, New Zealand.
Thanks Andrew Doyle
Really nice parking in Strandhill in Sligo. Although beemer drivers can do what they like, right?
They better hope Annie doesn’t get hold of ’em.
