here's my '75 90S.

To answer the original question.

Iconic machines like the Porshe 911 Carrera '73-'74, are "special' to a select group of enthusiasts.

I agree also...
Mine





a side road repair : worn floats on the brand new Dell



and the RS



I can compare and engine temperament, is much much more enjoyable on the 90S

For me the 74 model can't be compared with others as it was the first BMW twin disc, controls are different from /6 and /7, gas cap also etc etc
76 and 77 have more points to share with /6 ans /7

Beautiful example Peter. I don't buy the 'select group' BS though.

Sorry, OT, but I'm jus' sayin'...

74 R90S with 7,300 miles before brought back to life after sitting 25+ years. R90S cockpit was very nicely laid out.

Now THAT is a wicked cool shot! Thanks Cy.
Make some really clean prints and market them!

thanks wirewkr ... really like that pic too!

#00041 was one of the first USA spec'd R90S imported by Butler and Smith. below is the corresponding ad they ran in Motorcyclist magazine in early 1974.

purchased from original owner's son. so history of this R90S is known back to day one. (7,300 miles) came with what I believe to be an unmolested engine from Butler & Smith painted black.

to compound things further, ad made claims of 77HP not 67. this 74 R90S flat hauls ass, sure feels like it's got more than 67hp. need to put this bike on a dyno to settle if ad had a typo, or very early R90S indeed had 77HP.

Bump to a great thread.

I just turned down the offer of a basket case '74 R90S - haven't got the time to do a full restoration. I just spent some of my spare days going through my parts supply and realized that I'd rather focus my energies on a R100S, R100R or R100CS machine. Seeing as this thread quite nicely thrashed out the differences between the R90S and the R100S, I have to say that the R100S has won my focus. Are these things appreciating in value or are values dropping in the marketplace? I don't see many for offer....

Thanks, Jackd.

This was a good thread. Some interesting banter re. the various routes BMW took in tuning the liter engine. Relevant and informative.




And if I'm not mistaken, this was taken on Mulholland Drive. Can any of you SoCal guys confirm.

Mulholland Highway, just east of Kanan Road, about 1 mile up hill from the Rock Store.

I know it well.
