This 1984 BMW R100RS is finished in Alaska Blue and powered by a 980cc opposed twin paired with a five-speed transmission. Equipment includes a driveshaft, a stepped two-up seat, a luggage rack with a passenger backrest, a front fairing, a clear windscreen, a dual exhaust system, a Brown side stand, a fork brace, an oil cooler, Koni shocks, alloy snowflake wheels, triple Brembo disc brakes, and BMW-branded panniers. The bike was acquired by its current owner in 2021, reportedly from an acquaintance who kept the bike in storage for more than 20 years. Subsequent service is said to have included replacing the battery and the charging system’s wiring harness as well as changing the fluids, replacing the front brake hoses, rebuilding and tuning the carburetors, and rebuilding the brake master cylinders and calipers. This R100RS is now offered at no reserve with its removed shocks, an expandable tank bag, and a clean North Carolina title in the owner’s name.
The bike is finished in Alaska Blue (542) over a black tubular steel frame. Features include a 6.3-gallon fuel tank, a stepped two-up seat, a rear cargo rack with an integrated passenger backrest, a front fairing with a clear windscreen, a Brown side stand, a center stand, Hella fog and driving lamps, auxiliary taillights, and BMW-branded hard cases. The seller notes chips, scratches, and corrosion on the frame, bodywork, and brightwork as well as blemishes and discoloration on the wheels.
Silver-finished 19″ front and 18″ rear alloy snowflake wheels were mounted with 100/90 front and 120/90 rear Shinko Tour Master tires and tubes under current ownership. Suspension consists of a leading-axle telescopic fork with a brace as well as dual Dial-A-Ride Koni shocks mounted to the swingarm. Brembo brakes consist of dual discs and two-piston calipers up front and a single version at the rear. The seller notes that the calipers and the front and rear master cylinders have been rebuilt and that the front brakes hoses were replaced.
MotoMeter instrumentation consists of a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 7,100-rpm redline, and an analog clock and voltmeter housed in the upper edge of the fairing. The five-digit odometer shows 30k miles, 2k of which have been ridden under current ownership.
The air-cooled 980cc OHV opposed twin was factory rated at 70 horsepower and features an oil cooler, twin Bing carburetors, and a chrome dual exhaust system with a crossover pipe. Work by the seller is said to have included rebuilding and tuning the carburetors, changing the oil and replacing the battery and charging system wiring harness.
The number 6226798 stamped on the engine case matches the last seven digits on the frame decal and the number stamped on the frame, photos of which can be viewed in the gallery.
Power is sent to the rear wheel through a dry single-disc clutch, a five-speed transmission, and an enclosed driveshaft. The transmission and final-drive fluids were reportedly changed by the seller.
