Bmw R850gs For Sale In Quito

For sale In Quito , Ecuador

BMW R850GS (Boxer Oil Head)
Year 2000
British registered on an X plate.
70,000 miles there abouts.

Jesse Bags
Tank Bag
Renthal Dakar Bars (straighter and more forward than Originals)
25mm Bar risers
Headlight protector
Oil cooler protector
Hand Guards.
Touratech Hardparts - Gearbox and telelever
Hawker Gel battery.

Tobinators + higher 1150GS screen
Haynes Manual. + BMW factory manual on CD
Original tool kit is complete + have few extra basic tools.
2 litre pertol canister.

Bike Cover
$200-300 dollars worth of spares.
Final drive bearing, oil seal, and o ring.
Pivot bearings
Emergancy inner tube
Cable repair kit

Have new fuel filter, oil filter, and brake pads ready to fit.
New front tyre just fitted.

If going on a big trip , it will probably need a new clutch, and rear tyre.
If coming from overseas it would probably be cheaper to bring the clutch plate from there and get it fitted here. BMW Quito

are not known for being helpful!

Can sort the tyre here.

Has been round france , Spain, Morroco, and 2 years in South America (18 months travelling, 6 months in Quito.)
Therefore it looks a little worse for wear in places.
There are a couple of dents in the Tank. Only Cosmentic.
The rear sub frame has been repaired. Now looks a little ugly but is strong!
Right hand Jesse bag has been damaged and repaired. but works as normal.
Left hand guard plastic damaged.
Small piece of front plastic trim is in the bottom of the Amazon river.
Right hand Spark plug cover is missing.

It has proved reliable all my trip, and still has many miles left in it ;o)
The few problems i had with it were generally self induced!
20km/l is possible if you are careful with the right hand. And can cruise all day at 130km/h when you want to get a move on.


Looking for
£3000.
Euro 4500
$6000 ono.

i will knock the price of a clutch plate off, if you choose to change it.

Have camping gear available as well, Northface Tadpole 23 tent, sleeping bag, cooker that could be negotiated in to the deal.

Essentially everything is here to just bring your bike kit, hop on and go!

If you know beemers, no problems.
If not i can spend a few days going over the bike with you, if wanted.

Quito is a good place to start a trip, being pretty easy to sort things out, and small enough to make popping to the border to change the paperwork no problems, and a good place to take spanish lessons.

If interested, Reply, PM me, or better - email
mother77, gmail, com
Fill in the gaps though!

Can send more pictures etc,

cheers
mike

Cheers Albert,

I was going to pop in anyway and see if you knew someone that might what the bike. Is the other bloke around for long? Or is he stuck here till he sorts more transport, or recovers from his injuries (hope thats not the case).

Are you around tomorrow night?

Cheers
mike

Quito

Good luck selling the bike Mike. Was in Quito a couple of weeks ago, pity we didn't meet up. Dropped into the Turtle's Head Albert, although I think you were in Mexico? Was looking forward to a pint with a fellow Scotsman too...still, the red ale was good.

Cheers, Hamish

still in Quito?

I'm heading to Lima in early May. Looking for a travel bike, but looking to spend $2000 tops on something that will serve me for a month around Peru.

Will your price have dropped that far by then?

Never hurts to ask!

Be well

Tim

Hi Tim,

i don´t think it will have dropped that far, unless i get desperate! but i could ship it home for the difference!

Are you only travelling by bike for a month? and only Peru?

If its longer, i will PM you with a slightly more complicated offer. How is your spanish?

cheers
mike

Hey, I was just curious how you were able to sell your bike? I am coming from Colorado to TDF and when the trip is over I would like to sell the bike, an advice on doing so or known threads that talk about it? Thanks and good luck with the sell.

You need to learn how to use the search button better, but the info is kind of hard to find so here you go.

A better idea, is to arrange to buy a U.S. travelers bike in Argentina and then fly there. In the bike for sale section of this site you will find that there are occasionally very good deals on U.S. bikes in Argentina because the U.S. motorcyclist is finished with his trip and does not want to pay $1500 to ship the bike home or deal with the customs problems of selling the bike to a local.

At Klein Motos in Paraguay you can sell your motorcycle for a no hassle modest cash deal.

Here is a new guy with a shop in Uruguay who says he will buy traveler motorcycles also.
