Original BMW comfort seat is rust-free and in VG condition, but has a small tear behind the passenger seat near the base. I have all service documentation and receipts, from both the original owner and myself, in a thick folder.
I am the 2nd owner purchased this bike 11/2008, and had it shipped to Denver from a MOA member in NM; I found it had many hidden mechanical defects + broken parts. I have invested over $13K in rebuilding the bike. Although you may look at the high mileage, this bike is in VG mechanical condition — there are no oil leaks, it does not smoke, or have compression issues.
Since 2010, Pete Holman (Bavarian Motorcycles West of CO) has been rebuilding and maintaining this bike for me. The bike has spent more days in the shop than being ridden. All fluids were last changed less than 400 miles ago.
This bike is ready to ride anywhere NOW.
Sadly, I think it’s time for this fine machine to have a new home. I had an unplanned forced early retirement (2012). I had L knee surgery (2011), which left me with some reduced stability. I am never sure that my knee will support me when I have to stop during a ride.
In the past 2 years, I have developed intermittent lower back pain which was diagnosed as a small spinal compression fracture. Since 11/2008, I have only ridden this bike less than 3K, and only 6 times in the past 2 years.
Selling price (non-negotiable): $4900 by cash, personal check, cashier check, or PayPal. Bike title released only after funds have cleared. Long distance shipping is at the buyer’s expense and responsibility (typically up to $650).
I can deliver the bike to a shipping terminal.
*** A $300 discount is offered to any buyer who flies into Denver, pays cash rides home, thru 7/15/2014. Any items which cannot be taken (Comfort seat, trailer hitch, covers, etc.) will be shipped free by UPS.***
