1978 BMW R100RS Motorsport SOLD
The Motorsport Edition of BMW’s legendary boxer twin R100RS was an instant collector’s item. Introduced in 1978 it had all the standard RS features from that model year, including integral cockpit fairing, distinctively styled ‘mag’ wheels, hydraulic dual disc front and single disc rear brakes. In addition this edition featured the evocative factory motorsport colour scheme and a distinctive blue tint dual seat. Only 200 were produced by the factory, with less than this supplied in the UK, making this a very rare bike indeed.
During the first owner’s tenure the RS had a twelve-year period in storage. Following this the bike returned to use in 2005 having benefited from an extensive frame up rebuild. This work is documented on the history file, which also includes the original purchase invoice, period brochures and numerous MOT certificates and invoices for servicing and repairs.
One owner from new until 2015 and only one previous owner since. Complete with desirable single and twin seat options, original rider’s handbook, pump and toolkit, a pair of Krauser panniers and two spare tinted screens.
Very collectable, and riding exactly as it should.
Viewing by appointment only please.
