Here we have a fantastic example of the gorgeous 1974 BMW R90s, this is the original mk1.

This bike has been owned from 6 months old by a local gentleman, who then sold it on to his brother, it then went and sat in a collection for a number of years before coming back to his brother and then back in to his possession in year 2000 where it has stayed ever since. In year 2000 it had a complete overhaul at Mick Barr BMW specialist at a cost of £4000, it was then used for a number of years before being laid up in the garage until recently.

We have undertaken a large amount of work in preparation for this sale, the bike is now in excellent mechanical order and ready to be enjoyed. The recent work consisted of various items not least a rebore and new pistons due to some bore scoring, it also had new fuel lines, brakes re-set, a full service, new gaskets throughout, overhaul of the prop shaft including new boots, and a thorough inspection throughout. This work was all completed by Overland and Classic Motorcycles, these guys specialise in classic BMW motorcycles and they would be more than happy to chat with and prospective buyer about the work done to this R90s.

Invoices are present for all recent work and the large overhaul in year 2000. This is a genuine mk1 R90s with all the right bits in the right places including the original switch gear, aluminium indicators, stainless mirrors etc which were all changed for more generic BMW items on the MK2 R90s. The only non original looking item is the pannier rack which should be chrome and has been changed to black at some point in its history.

The original BMW badged Krauser panniers are present and come with the bike, the original air pump and storage box with rubber top are also both present under the seat.

The bike looks fantastic and rides lovely, currently being run in after the recent engine work and will go back to Overland and Classic to have valve clearances and torque figures re-checked prior to sale.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a viewing then please feel free to call anytime on the details below.

Delivery worldwide is no problem, part exchange is welcomed and finance can be arranged through Close Brother Motor Finance.

A few words form the press, ‘‘Back in the early 1970s BMW suffered from a staid, sensible, beardy touring image. The R90S was a deliberate move to change that perception.

Based on the R75/5 and styled by Hans Muth, the R90S was the flagship of the /6 range, with the engine bored out to 898cc and making 67bhp at 7000rpm, with a new-for-1973 five-speed gearbox.

It was the first BMW with twin discs, had a unique bikini fairing and weighed just 200kg. Flat out, with the rider tucked behind that fairing, the R90S could top 125mph.

Without the R90s there would have been no R100RS and consequently no S1000RR or possibly any of the world-beaters produced since the ’70s by a company energised by the R90S.’’

A true cult motorcycle, a real game changer!
