I keep all the original parts inside the OME panniers for future times, but for this days I did a Ritmo-Sereno R-Rocket.

Ritmo Sereno (Ritmo Albero branded front fairing) not installed looking for the right mode in the fairing rack
custom made Ritmo Sereno 1 & half seat
local custom made rear cafe seat bump

Got one as well.

Only took the better part of 20 years. Still had the brochure from AMOL Motorcycles that I picked up back in the day.
I heard 186 imported into the US. BMW denies the bike exists. Run the VIN # on the BMW site and they'll say 'invalid'.
Go figure.
Mine has EME alternator and crank trigger ignition. San Jose/CC Products type frame braces I made, low bars, seat redone with softer padding, HD top triple clamp, Keihin /6 style stainless mufflers, steel braided lines, Moto Israel oversized oil cooler, dual Fiamms, YSS shock, RaceTech cartridge emulators, factory heated grips, powdercoated rectangular valve covers, and a few other bells and whistles.
On the shelf is a set of ported twin plug heads, hi compression Moto Israel pistons (1/2 lb lighter than stock), 5% taller 5th gear, factory cam, 36mm delortos, and more...
Wrote a story about the bike...

..that is prety freekin' cool Chris. I haven't seen a glovebox tank that size...COP bike?

Not my build, but, why'd you bother to swing the left side header all the way around the front of the motor? Won't that make it a quite a bit longer than the right side?
I get the scrambler pipes designt, but it seems like you could accomplish the same by making them equal right and left and still be X'ing at the airbox...
Maybe the point of the X-over is to equalize the length.

Just askin'

Yeah I gotta agree with the last two guys- this is going to be awesome Chris...
You need to throw this up on your own thread though as this is getting off topic! But since I posted already, I love how you lowered the rearsets a few inches compared to your normal ones. At first I was like, "No fair!" But then I realized you can't lower rearsets that low unless you stick your exhaust somewhere else like up in the air...

I got a 91 last month and it seems to be running hot - do you guys know the valve clearances? I keep seeing that it's the same, but not the same, 2mm, .10mm,...?

Just thought I'd ask you guys.

Also - BMWEuro
What are your valve covers off of? I like the rounded ones.

Clearances

I sue .004" intake, .008" exhaust.
.10mm .20mm for the metric minded : )

Number imported into the USA?

An earlier post put the number of R100 Classics brought into the USA at 163. I remember 186 as the number, but I have no idea where I got that from.
Anyone have a verified number for the beasts brought into the US?
BMW denies the bikes ever existed, so you can't ask them.
thanks,
-Armen

Nice bike, you can't have too many- but i agree with the stale comments (at this point) that you should keep it as is.

Here is my share of the 163 R100 Classics

Now I don't know what to do with her keep her original or do her some light mods
I think you have one motorcycle too many. In the interests of keeping your wife happy you should sell me your RS.
