Bike Of The Day: 1978 BMW R80/7 By Burn Up Company

The 1978 BMW R80/7 showcases a polished fuel tank complementing its black frame. It is equipped with a 797cc boxer twin engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

This bike boasts a polished metal fuel tank adorned with black pinstripes and a modified black-painted frame courtesy of Burn Up Company. Notable features include a Machete Company leather two-up seat, modified headlight bucket with LED lighting, Highsider mirror, Monza polished fuel cap, bar-end turn signals, fiberglass fenders, and a side stand.

Equipped with 19″ front and 18″ rear black wire-spoke wheels fitted with Firestone Deluxe Champion tires, braking duties are handled by a drilled front disc brake and a rear drum brake. The front fork has been lowered, and Hagon shocks replace the stock ones, mounted on the swingarm and final drive enclosure.

A Renthal low handlebar with replacement triple tree and bar clamps sits ahead of a Motogadget Motoscope speedometer and a five-digit speedometer. Upgrades include replacement brake lines, levers, and a Motogadget M-Unit Blue for Bluetooth connectivity and push-button engine starts.

Powering the bike is a 797cc boxer twin engine rated at 50 horsepower and 43 lb-ft of torque. Twin Bing carburetors and a dual heat-wrapped exhaust system with a crossover pipe complete the package. The power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a five-speed manual transmission and a shaft drive.
