Good unrestored original condition.

Frame no: 6136216
Engine no: 6136216

The last and considered the best engine of the early R series. BMW made over 100 fine adjustments to the power plant alone with a 40% weight reduction on the clutch assembly compared to the previous models flywheel and clutch, higher compression ratio (9.5:1) European spec giving 70hp at 7000rpm

Although the R900s is still the more expensive collectable bike, the R100 CS was only produced for just over two years and in far fewer numbers. Therefore the rarer bike.

The original owner specified factory spoked wheel rims in preference to the standard alloys which I think enhances it's 'classic sport' stance. This could be the only one from the factory with this spec.

The 'King and Queen' seat was fitted when new on the original
seat base which has not rusted; very rare. There are two complete additional seat units should you wish to convert back to the original. However, having toured with the K&Q seat I highly recommend it.

Factory fitted heated grips were also specified plus fork gaiters. Original Krauser touring panniers and frame also spec'd which are in excellent undamaged condition.

Original tool kit, owners handbook and purchase receipt -A.Williams & Co (Cheltenham) Ltd, dated 1st October 1981, plus a complete list of owners file.

Price includes central European/UK delivery by Chas Mortimer, so no worries for safe,secure delivery.
