Current BaT Auctions
This 1979 BMW R100RS was acquired by the seller in May 2004, and it is finished in blue and silver with orange and white pinstripes. Power is provided by an air-cooled 980cc opposed twin paired with a five-speed transmission, and equipment includes an enclosed driveshaft, a dual exhaust system, a full fairing, a 16″ Parabellum windscreen, a Corbin two-up seat, a rear cargo rack, Rox Speed FX setback handlebar risers, cast alloy wheels, triple disc brakes, and a pair of BMW-branded Krauser side cases. This R100RS is now offered at no reserve with removed parts and a clean Massachusetts title in the seller’s name.
The fully-faired bodywork is finished in blue and silver with orange and white pinstripes, and it is mounted over a black-finished double-loop frame. Features include a tinted 16″ Parabellum windscreen, a left-side lift-assist handle, a Corbin stepped two-up seat, a rear cargo rack, pocket bags inside the fairing sides, pannier mounts, and both side and center stands. The seller notes cracks in the upper edges of the fairing, and photos show corrosion on various chassis components.
Cast alloy snowflake wheels measuring 19″ up front and 18″ out back and were mounted with a mixed set of Bridgestone Spitfire S11 and Continental ContiGO! tires in 2009. Suspension consists of a leading-axle conventional fork as well as dual preload-adjustable shocks mounted to the swingarm on the left and the final drive housing on the right. Braking is from dual 260mm rotors and ATE calipers up front along with a single caliper and 260mm rotor at the rear.
The shrouded handlebar is secured in Rox Speed FX setback risers, which relocate the bar over the steering damper adjustment knob atop the steering stem. Instrumentation consists of a MotoMeter 140-mph speedometer, a matching tachometer, and a central column of indicator lights as well as an analog clock and voltmeter housed in the upper edge of the fairing. The five-digit odometer shows 41k miles.
The air-cooled 980cc OHV opposed twin features an oil cooler, dual Bing 94/40 carburetors, and a chrome dual exhaust system, and factory-rated output was 70 horsepower. Oil consumption is noted by the seller.
Power is sent to the rear wheel through a dry single-plate clutch, a five-speed transmission, and a driveshaft enclosed within the right leg of the swingarm.
A pair of BMW-branded Krauser side cases will accompany the motorcycle, as will the removed factory windscreen and handlebar clamps.
The number 6185302 stamped on the frame matches the number stamped on the engine case, an image of which can be viewed in the gallery.
