BMW R100RS.

Very nice cosmetic and mechanical condition.

Previous owner has loved and maintained this bike.

This has to be one of the best looking BMWs I've seen. The current trend seems to be to remove everything and fit an uncomfortable seat. Each to their own, but it seems a shame to turn one of the greatest and most comfortable all rounders into an urban posing tool.

The RS models are a little more sporty than the out and out touring RT models. The RS has narrow low bars so you sit with slightly more weight on the bars, not like a modern race replica, but just enough to add some weight to the front end making it feel secure and well planted on fast free flowing A roads. The fairing still offers some protection, not the barn door of the RT and not the sitting in a gale feeling of a naked bike, an excellent compromise with a slightly sporty feel.

The previous owner has spent some time and money making it just how he wanted it. The top half has been professionally resprayed in Porsche metallic anthracite grey and the fairing lowers plus wheels are now in satin black. As you can see it looks fantastic.

A full stainless Keihin exhaust has been fitted (this includes the vulnerable collector box).

New Continental (ContiGo) tyres

Original BMW luggage with keys is included.

Original fairing clock doesn't work, but all other gauges and warning lights are perfect.

The pictures were taken before the MOT, so they do not show the new Hagon adjustable rear shock absorber recently fitted. The Hagon does not sag as much as the original so in effect it slightly reduces the steering angle making it a little more nimble on twisty roads. Certainly a vast improvement over the original shock.

Engine start instantly and pulls very well in every gear, Mechanically excellent, no smoke, no noises or grumbles, one of the best R100s I've ridden.

First registered 13/10/1988
MOT expires 07/04/2020
Current mileage, is just under 41000 miles, old MOT seem to confirm this is correct.
Supplied with original handbook and a small folder of receipts showing maintenance and other work.
