The BMW R80G/S was manufactured from 1980 to 1987. The designation G/S is an acronym of the German words Gelände/Strasse, meaning offroad/road. The R80G/S has a 800 cc engine, fitted into an R65 frame, featuring Nikasil cylinders, kickstart, electronic ignition and a lighter flywheel. At the rear the bike has a new single-sided swingarm and drive shaft – called a monolever due to the rear suspension being provided by single shock absorber. The G/S came in two color-schemes: white tank/red(!) seat and a blue tank/black seat. This one is build in '82, with the clock's been round and still performing well.
