1978 bmw r100s sitting for five years

Hey dudes and dudettes. I recently came across a 1978 r100s and am wondering what the value of this bike is. First off it has sat for 5 years in a garage. 44k on the clock. it needs all new wear items, basically all of the rubber is rotting. The shocks need to be rebuilt. carbs suprisingly look clean. all electronics look good. the sad part, I did a compression test and i have 155 on the left and 75 on the right. I have done my fair share of german rebuilds so I feel confident in my own abilities but im concerned about parts. In my experience any thing labeled BMW adds 40% to the price tag and then Im just worried about sourcing parts. Any sort of help or smart ass comments would be cool........
