Question about 1985 BMW R 65 LS

1 Answer

Why are R65LS's "Collectible"?

It seems that I see the term "collectible" almost any time I see an airhead for sale. Collectible or not, most people just continue to ride the snot out of their airheads. However, what's the deal with the R65LS model? Is this truly a collectible? What are the differences between the LS model and the standard R65 other than the fairing? I'm currently looking at an '82 and am curious.

The R65LS was designed by none other than Hans Muth, who designed the R100RS, the R100RT and, of all things, the Suzuki Katanas (the early ones). To my eye, the LS is an excellent example of early 80s motorcycle design. The red ones are especially tasty and unusual. I don't believe they ever sold in significant quantity either.

Have a swingline stapler over 50 years old in working condition. Is it considered an antique ?

It is considered 'vintage'. Antique has to be 100 years old. A stapler isn't particularly collectible although there may be people that collect old office supplies.

I need Robux

You can add robux to trades, and if someone is willing you can trade a high value collectible away for the collectibles value in robux. Roblox is based around the open-world format of gaming. This is one of the most popular formats, especially among younger players, giving them the ability to roam or play freely with little to no constraint. The game-play is constant, so there is no need for loading screens, just consistent interacting with other players from all around the world in real-time.

I have a vintage leviton switch. you plug it in a 200 or a 125 watt receptacle and it has several outlets on the side where you plug in another electrical appliance, iron, radio, etc.. how old is this...

You can find relative values of collectible stuff by seeing what prices things are going for on ebay. I have no idea if anybody collects this kind of thing, but I am constantly surprised by what people collect. Try searching several different ways using the words switch, collector, collectible, antique, vintage, etc. good luck

Going thru some stuff for a yard sale and found

It's utterly worthless, sorry. You may see a few chancers asking ridiculous sums for other examples on auction websites, but they never sell.

Old doesn't automatically equal collectible nor valuable.

It's not all bad: you can have as much fun as you like trying to use it without worrying about breaking it.

Will luggage mounts from other airheads fit?

No pannier frames for the r65 are the only one that will fit. the rack fits to the frames. If you have the r65LS then you will need to make brackets to move the rack back so you can still open the seat.
