1988 R100RS in original unmolested OEM condition. Not mint but very, very good indeed. The bike has 29k miles. From chatting to the previous owner, (only 4 including me in 33 years) I believe that to be genuine. (The bike still has the BMW OEM cable lock in the top frame tube, and in the seat cubby, the original puncture repair kit and gas bottles and the original first aid kit) He had bought it from the PO who had laid it up due to a bout of illness and then time took over, as it often does. The new owner put the bike back on the road and uprated the front suspension at the same time via new progressive springs. As you can see, LED spots were installed also. I've also replaced the OEM screen with a Speed 7 screen which is higher. The original will come with the bike along with a Haynes manual, an exhaust nut spanner and lots of paperwork.

The bike has a Surefoot sidestand which makes parking a lot easier than with the oem ss. The centre stand is easy to use also provided you use the correct technique: use the weight of your right foot and not your back!

The bike comes with BMW touring panniers (see pic) which are in similar condition to the rest of the bike i. e. not unmarked but very, very good. There's also the usual comprehensive toolkit that makes a mockery of the piffling rubbish BMW supply these days! Oh ... and the battery is nearly new. Currently charging at 14. 6V. Pun intended! The bike also has after market heated grips. Not as good as BMW oem but they work OK. There are several spare keys for ignition and panniers. The MOT is current until April 2022.

This is the final rendition of the R100RS. For many, it's the best. The power was reduced but what's there is all usable. The twin front brakes work very well and the handling benefits from the more rigid monolever set up and the Marzochi tele forks. It has tubeless tyres. As with all the airhead RS models, the fairing is the bees knees and the very definition of weather protection in a sports tourer. If you get wet in a rainstorm, it's because you stopped!

I had planned to hang on to this bike but my plans have changed and I could use the space.

If you're looking for a very usable sports tourer, an appreciating classic and a lovely early example of the Mk3 RS, this is it. The bike is located in Edinburgh. Catch a cheap flight or a train and I'm happy to pick you up at airport or station before you ride it home. I'll even throw in a meal. - details above
