R80 G/S and R1150R FOR SALE

Been preparing my ideal bike for world travel based on long research but cricumstances changed and have to sell my bikes.

Brief was to construct a simple' repairable low maintenance reliable bike that didn't shout too loudly "I'm a rich euro traveller" based on research on this site.
