The BMW R65 was a light touring motorcycle introduced by BMW in 1978 to add a mid-size motorcycle to its product line. The engine is an 648 cc, OHV, two valves per cylinder, air-cooled flat-twin engine. The R65 weighs 205 kg with a full tank of fuel and has a five speed gearbox connected to a shaft final drive. From 1981 on, the R65 was fitted with breaker-less electronic ignition. This further improved the already good reliability of the bike. The R65 features a smaller fuel tank than other larger BMW airheads, with a 22 litres capacity which includes a 2 litres reserve.
As you can see, some parts are missing from the bike. I am going to have full hands finding the right engine and repear some parts of it. Next I will have to spent some time refreshing and polishing the color. And finally, Some final touches are necessary to make this bike, like it is a brand new one.
