Found a 1988 R100RT low milage.

I friend of a friend is looking at selling his R100RT He is the third owner and did not ride it a lot. Only road is a couple of times last summer and is thinking of selling. Bike is dusty/dirty but looks in great shape. Has a corbin seat and 20K on the clock. Any idea what this bike would be worth. I really like the red paint with black smoke trim. Not sure I need another bike but I love the airheads. Was thinking of selling my 1200GS ADV if I buy this. Any thoughts or input on this bike would be appreciated.

I love my R100 (basic model) ! I've had an R1100S BCR, R1100RT and R1150GS - these all came and went but I'd never sell the R100. It certainly feels older than the later generation BMWs but that's part of the appeal for me. The airheads are less technology laden (none in fact !) but that's a positive for me. Spares are not a problem as practically everything is still available either through the main dealer or specialists.
My R100 also has a better range than the R1150GS that I had !

I still have a 82 R100 that my son now owns. The R100 is a great bike which is why I am thinking of the RT for traveling. I really like my GS but the airhead gives me much more comfort to dive into and fix than the oilhead. Simple things for the simple minded I guess.

Sorry. No pics but the bike is dirty from sitting. It will clean up real nice. The bags are like new on it.

He is asking $3,600. I am thinking of offering 3K. Needs a battery. Has new rubber. ONe loose mirror from dropping making a U turn. No damage to the plastic. Just the Jug Head scraped. I know he did have problems with the charging system when He first got the bike. Not sure if he got that worked out.

I hope this works. Decided to take the plunge and shook hands on it. I think 3K is a decent price

Isn't the body work from the early '80's RT? That's not original. I would ask the owner why the bodywork are changed? repaint, Switch out, crashed?

Bodywork looks right for an '88 to me, looks like a nice bike, good buy

I'm with sigpe ... I think it's either re spray or fairing from a 81-81 ... It's Not that big of a deal .

Poor charging ... Start with battery and wiring ... An extra ground may help ... Diode board mounting .. Then if all else fails ... The EME enduralast system is great and an easy install for 450 watts.

Whilst many say they are ugly ... At certain angles I find the RT have their own beauty ... And are built to chew up the miles.

PS .. Welcome to the club

I love that bike! Well done man. Looks completely unmolested and a very nice rider.
And for what it's worth that would make a really nice naked bike as well. Or throw an R100S fairing on, or this, or that, or leave it be. Great looking bike. Surprised to not see engine guards although I don't miss them.

Not a bad idea but I already have an82 R100 that I put on a matching Gray/blue pinstripe S faring. I ended up giving that to my son so I have a bike to ride when I visit Seattle.
