GS Conversion – 1984 BMW R80ST

In Custom, Dual-Sport, Germany by AbhiLeave a Comment

For two years, BMW created a street-focused variant of the R80GS. They only sold 5,963 examples of what was named the R80ST, and approximately 15% of them were exported to the US. Changes to the ST compared to the GS included less travel in the suspension, a 19″ front wheel and a total weight of 396 pounds. The engine produced about 50 horsepower, good for a top speed just over 100 miles per hour. Though sales were initially poor, the ST has become a bit of a cult classic. Because they are cheaper than GSes of the time period, the ST has also become a common platform for GS “tributes” and other off-road conversions. Here’s one that’s been turned into a “G/ST”. How do you think it ended up?

This example (VIN: WB1034901E6207886) has fresh paint to emulate the iconic “bumblebee” livery as well as a powdercoated frame. It’s offered by BoxerWorks, who state that everything works and that recent work includes a rebuilt transmission, new brake lines, new wiring harness, new handlebars, new tires, rebuilt front end, new stock seat, and new rear rack. The bike comes with an aftermarket voltmeter/tachometer, and it comes with the factory BMW luggage.
