The BMW R80 ST is a fascinating little piece of history, it was the street-going version of the dual-sport BMW R80 GS – the first in the long of world famous BMW GS dual bikes of which over have been made. ST didn’t enjoy the popularity of sibling, only 5953 were produced between and 1984, despite this is a dedicated little community of ST who’ll talk your ear off the benefits of the R80 ST – I just spent an on the phone with one of these whilst I was researching this so I’ll try to condense the dialogue the paragraph below.

The R80 ST had a few technical adjustments over its off-road focussed brother – the had shorter spring travel, the tire was a 19″ model and the bike was with road tires and back. The ST had a shaft-drive and a single swing-arm with a monoshock, the weight of the bike was just (396lbs) which led to it having road good handling. to this lighter weight was the of the boxer engine, this the R80 ST a very low centre of gravity, the cylinder 797cc engine (50hp) and 59Nm of torque.

The closest thing to official figures give the ST a 0-100kph of 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 164kph, the top can apparently be squeezed up to 174kph if you mind doing a Rollie and lying prone on the seat your head tucked in the dials.

This heavily modified R80 ST was by Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles in they’ve taken the ST back to genetic roots with a conversion and the result is one of the best retro-off-roaders we’ve featured year. Fuel built the for a customer who lives in the Austrian and wanted a motorcycle for trail that had a little more than the plastic-and-graphics modern bikes.

Fuel set to work by stripping the back and adding a Kawaski fuel tank, they bolted an old Ural … to the side of the tank and connected it to the mechanism. After this added a Tomasselli handlebar, a trial headlight, a BMW K75 front with custom triple a Motogadget speedometer, a Wilbers 632 shock, a 2-into-2 Hoske Continental TKC 80 tyres, a solo designed by Fuel then by X-Sits and a slew of other mods.

The finished bike is a genuinely off roader that I’m sure have no trouble navigating the of the Alps this summer, if like to see more from you can click here to see some of other work.
