Description BMW R45 Vintage Motorbike

Hi and welcome to my auction.This is a very reluctant sale and forced really due to finances.I had no idea it would cost so much money and/or time.BUT!!


I have enjoyed the challenge of this project and might well hang on to it pending the results of the auction.Ive got this far afterall.


It will need new tyres,front brakes bleeding(a right pig of a job!!) and some fine adjustment with the carbs and that's about it.


Ive had problems in getting it started over the last few weeks,but have now had the carbs overhauled by an expert and it does start and run really well.


Amazing sounding engine and brings back fond memories of when i owned an R80/7 about 15 years ago,just fabulous!!


I was told to check the compression before anything else because this might cause problems in starting the engine.


I bought a meter and checked the compression and found it to be 140 pounds per square inch on both cyclinders(really good result).


I have reason to believe that the mileage is genuine as it has not been run since 1987(I have the tax disc to prove).The engine sounds sweet.


I bought this bike from Bangor,northern Ireland some months ago,in boxes and have been putting it back together and have got it up and running over the last 6 months.


I have actually been out on it albeit a few hundred yards,just to check the gearbox and clutch etc,Fabulous!!


Had problems getting it going but found that its all about the fuel and the carbs,very precise things.


I have to thank Frank for all his help in getting this started.Some fabulous help and advice.


The Starter motor packed up and found it was a Chinese(crap starter) designed to work for a few weeks I think.


I didn't realise that I had the original starter motor and solenoid and so have had that reconditioned and it now works as it should and whats most inmportant is that the whole bike is now


all original.(apart from the stainless exhaust system)As I say there are still a few bits to sort out,in all honesty.


I would prefer to have a chat with anyone who is interested in taking her on!!??There are far too many bits and pieces to discuss which have been replaced and/or restored.


As I say a very reluctant move on my part for this quite rare gorgeous early 1978  R45.


all the very best,


I look forward to having a chat,07551 799186,rob


JUST A NOTE TO SAY I HAVE JUST RECEIVED (PREVIOUSLY BOUGHT) A SET OF OLD BMW PANNIERS AND RAILS WHICH I WILL INCLUDE FOR THE WINNER.


IVE DECIDED TO REDUCE THE STARTING BID TO REFLECT THE FACT THAT THE BIKE WILL NEED THE BRAKES SORTING AND POSSIBLY A SET OF TYRES TO GET THROUGH ITS MOT,THERFORE A REAL BARGAIN!


MANY THANKS


PLEASE NOTE THAT ID ALREADY SOLD THE BIKE BUT WHEN THE CHAP TURNED UP I COULD NOT GET IT STARTED,A BIT OF A BASIL FAULTY MOMENT.SO HE LEFT IT.


I HAVE SINCE BEEN ABLE TO GET IT RUNNING AGAIN AND ITS FINE,AS I SAY THE FUEL/AIR MIXTURE HAS TO BE SPOT ON FOR IT TO START,A REAL TECHNIQUE.


SO THIS IS THE REASON FOR RE LISTING.


ALL THE BEST.
