    Just my opinion, but that seems like a very good deal on that bike. I don't know other brands that closely, but each older BMW seems to have a vague floor in price. Airheads, about $3000 (for a...

    I had been out of motorcycles for many years. When I got the bug again, I automatically went back to airheads due to my wonderful recollections of my 1978 R60/7. So I got an '83 R80RT, my "dream...
