When Bob saw this bike for the first time (it arrived while he was on a cross country sidecar trip) he said “if our son was graduating college this year instead of next I might keep this bike for him” but alas he has one more year to go. So this incredibly perfect, very low mileage BMW R1150R standard machine is up for grabs. They really don’t come any nicer than this and it’s highly unlikely that you can find another one of similar condition anywhere to compare it to.
This is not an ABS equipped motorcycle. It was built in Berlin Germany in July of 2002 and then it was shipped to the US in August of the same year and sold to the first owner in late February of 2003. It was very nicely equipped with heated grips, the low factory seat and the standard “overdrive” transmission and factory center stand. It came to us with two keys, the factory tool set, tire repair kit and the owners books.
The owner very recently changed the engine and gear oils and filter (purchased the supplies here) before selling us the bike and we just brought the other needs up to date by changing the brake fluid, adding Nitrogen to both tires which we feel have about 75-80% of the tread remaining . We also adjusted the action of the rear brake pedal free play and performed one old warranty claim for some ware harness trim protection. We are also replacing the cam cover o-rings as they are beginning to weep which is very common.
<span style="\"font-size:" 12px;\"="">It handily passed the Maryland State Inspection process and our even tougher internal PPI inspection to insure that it was up to our ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED program and specifications, which it is. So if you are looking for a magnificent classic Avus Black cosmetically and mechanically great BMW for under $10,000 look no further than Bob’s here in the greater Washington, DC – Northern Virginia – Suburban Maryland region; we’re sure you’ll find something else to do with the other $2,000 – maybe add a BMW Nav 4 GPS, a BMW Multivario tankbag and take a nice 3,000 mile road trip with the savings!Color:
