MOA Foundation to raffl e Classic Airhead news


THE BMW MOA FOUNDATION IS


switching gears from their traditional new bike raffle, and giving away a 1978 R 80/7. MOA Board member Sam Garst donated the unrestored motorcycle to the BMW MOA Foun- dation. According to Garst, the motorcy-


cle was purchased at an estate sale— a true barn find, just without the barn. The motorcycle wasn’t run- ning at the time and was described as having electrical issues. Garst purchased the motorcycle with the intent of making it roadworthy and donating it to the Foundation. He brought the motorcycle to fel-


low Wisconsin club member and MOA Ambassador Randy Boris,


who wrenches occasionally at Anschutz Motorsports in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Boris inspected the motorcycle, performed some basic maintenance and repaired an electrical issue that kept the motorcycle from enjoying a curvy road or two. Within a few weeks of seeing it for the first time, Boris was test riding an exceptional 1978 R 80.


The 1978 R 80 is unrestored with 55,000


original miles. Included in the raffle are the Krauser bags and luggage rack installed at the time of purchase. There is an origi- nal technical manual with the delivering dealer’s signature and date of delivery from November 1, 1977! Boris added fresh flu- ids, inspected and lubed the splines, cleaned and repaired the carburetors, installed new points and a condenser, and


rebuilt the forks. He also solved the elec- trical issues with a few new relays and a peek at a wiring diagram. Finally, Boris gave the motorcycle a thorough test ride and a clean bill of health for the next owner. The best feature of the R 80 is that it can


be yours. The Foundation will award the motorcycle to one lucky MOA member on December 16, 2017. Tickets are on sale October 1 through November 30 for only $25 each (or buy five for $100). Tickets can be purchased online at bmwmoaf.org, and all money raised will be used to support the Foundation’s mission of advancing rider safety, education and training. Special thanks to MOA members Sam


Garst and Randy Boris for donating this beautiful, original BMW motorcycle and keeping the heritage alive!
