Our latest: 1985 BMW R80 main image


The BMW R80 was the uber popular mid sized touring bike of the eighties, with their well built reputation and comfort focused layout. Fast forward to today and their popularity as a ‘resto-mod’ build hasn’t changed but stems strongly from stripping away the stock parts to reveal the quirky but iconic boxer engine and a relatively simple 1980’s design.

The owner of this bike, Kevin, gives us the background for the build… “I've owned this bike since 2017. But before that I've always admired the model and wanted to own a Boxer engine for a long time. When I was in my teens, my uncle had a R1200, and I've always admired it.”
