Description

1977 BMW 980cc R100/7
Registration no. UFH 220S
Frame no. 6040819
Engine no. 6040819

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 '/7' series. The latter comprised the R100/7 tourer, which used the 60bhp version of the new engine, while the cockpit-faired R100S sports roadster and the fully faired R100RS superbike came with 70bhp on tap. This R100/7 was undergoing a full restoration at marque specialists Difazio Motorcycles when that company stopped trading. The vendor was then tasked with completing the rebuild, which he did in 2014, but was then forced to take possession of the machine to clear the remaining debt. Offered for sale at a fraction of the restoration costs, it comes with sundry invoices, MoT to June 2016 and a V5C document.
