1983 BMW R80G/S Dakar

Showroom condition GS up for a touch under £9,000

A GS as an investment? This 1983 R80G/S is a good candidate. One owner for 20 years, it was then snapped up by a classic BMW restorer who's rebuilt the engine and fitted a few modern Siebnerock parts including new barrels and pistons.

Did you know the G/S comes from Gelände/Strasse which means offroad/street. A pub fact for you there, if ever I saw one. G'wan take it, it's yours.

You're welcome.

However, 500,000 of this model were produced between 1980 and 1987 and that surely stacks up the odds of this becoming a classic, unless a good 499,000 of the other are no longer in existence.

BMW won the Paris/Dakar on 1981, 93, 94 and 85. What motorsport success has the 1150 or 1200 ever had?

It's way cooler than any GS1200 could ever be. If any GS is set to be a classic, surely this is it?
