This running R1200GS PROJECT BIKE is ready and waiting for an ambitious new owner to take over where its last owner left off. Contact us NOW to arrange to see it and learn more. Call 1-888-269-2627 to speak with one of our BMW Certified Sales Advisors — Jim, or Todd. Call TODAY!

As with all PROJECT BIKES we want buyers to know as much as possible about the bike before making a purchase. We’ve nothing to hide and our only goal is that the new owner for each and every PROJECT BIKE feels they paid fairly and got a good, if not great value in the deal. We encourage people to call, schedule a time to meet with one of our sales advisors and inspect each machine in person so they fully understand all the positives as well as the potential downsides involved in the refurbishing process. 

Please take a moment to learn more about Bob’s PROJECT BIKE program and read our general disclaimer HERE.

THIS BIKE RUNS — it starts, idles, accelerates, rides, shifts and brakes as it should. All the lighting works, including the front strobe lights, the front aux lights and the dynamic brake light. It has a respectable service history, much of the work in recent years having been done at Bob’s. We’re selling it as a PROJECT BIKE because of its age, mileage, mediocre cosmetic condition, and one critical mechanical issue: the Integral ABS unit is intermittently failing and most likely needs to be replaced. It will not pass Maryland Safety Inspection in its present state. 

The appearance of this PROJECT BIKE is really not too bad when you consider its age and mileage. From five or six feet away it makes a fairly good impression. Get in a little closer, though, and you’ll notice the signs of its experience a little more clearly. You’ll see a small paint chip on the tank along with some typical paint wear and other faded surfaces, tip-over scratches visible on the right-side crash bar and handguard extension, and corrosion on the header pipes and at the rear inside of the muffler. The bike served its last owner very well in utilitarian use, and I guess we could say it looks the part. Certainly, it’s well suited to continue as a workhorse for its next owner.

The air/oil-cooled R1200GS is a very solid, reliable machine with excellent performance characteristics. It’s one of the models that has made BMW Motorcycles rightfully famous worldwide. Additionally, THIS one comes well equipped with some nice extras:
• Heated Grips
• Auxiliary Driving Lights with aluminum protection covers
• Auxiliary Strobe Lights
• Auxiliary Dynamic Brake Light
• Extended Hand Protectors with built-in Aux Strobe Light housings
• Hepco & Becker Engine Protection Bars
• Laminar Lip Windshield Extension
• Touratech Tank Bag
• Supplementary Seat Cover 

This bike has already had a good life — so far. Now it’s a PROJECT BIKE. That just means it’s waiting to start Phase 2. Make it YOUR Project, give it the attention it needs, and you can confidently and proudly ride it for another 100,000 miles or more. It’s another thing that BMW Motorcycles are rightfully famous for — Longevity!
