Description

1983 BMW 980cc R100RS
Registration no. KJN 46Y
Frame no. 6390301
Engine no. 6390301

Just a few years after introducing the R90/6 and R90S, BMW upped the capacity of its range-topping flat-twins to 980cc for the 1977 season in the form of the R100/7 series, the flagship of this new line-up being the fully-faired R100RS superbike. Although styled like a super-sports machine, the R100RS was actually more of a sports-tourer, which did it no harm whatsoever in BMW's traditional market sector. Repainted some time ago in BMW Motorsport colours, this R100RS was acquired by the vendor in July 2000 and has been kept in dry storage for several years. Re-commissioning will be required before further use. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with an old-style V5 registration document and is offered without reserve.
