1982 R100RS - Good value?
 
A neighbor has one for sale and is asking $2,500 obo. Bike appears to be complete and in fairly good shape for its age and mileage (16,000 +). Sorry no pics. I haven't inspected it (just a quick look over) yet and having never owned a BMW of any sort I was wondering what gotcha's to look for on this model and if his asking price is reasonable. Thanks in advance from a dedicated lurker:D.

$$$$$$$
 
Uh YEAH it's a deal

yep, that's a "good to very good" deal if its complete and in good shape.

Hell yes.
 
If it's complete, starts, and the faring looks good ... it's a GREAT deal.

Appreciate the input. Gonna take a good look at it tomorrow. Who knows, I might just become an air head owner tomorrow!

Wow, what a deal! Low mileage (if it's not on its second time around) and an excellent price! Some pix would enable us to offer better advice! :evil

Yeah yeah we want some pictures. By the way there was a guy last winter who was trying to sell his with 50K on the odo. He had hard time selling it for 3k. However it was winter and he sold it for 2,800. So 2,500 is a great deal with that many miles. Put some pictures on.

Pics as requested
 
A few pics for your viewing pleasure. Looks complete and original to me but what do I know! Haven't talked to the owner yet (Holiday weekend). Let me know what you think...

Fooking buy it.

Super cool and a great price.

Then ride the hell out of it.

jellycow 05-25-2009 01:29 PM

Wow, looks like a steal!

Anorak 05-25-2009 01:34 PM

If you don't buy it, I will. Seriously. Where is it? Aside from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa or the US Virgin Islands, I will travel to pick it up.

$2500 is salvage pricing for a R100RS.

It has Motosport badges and the proper orange stripe over the headlight area. It may or may not be the "real deal" but if it is, some folks think of it as the Holy Grail of RS's.

I have an '85 with both seats, k bike bags, OEM original tank bag and nearly 70,000 miles. I wouldn't sell it for a dime less than $8000.

Moto was only 1978 I believe...
