Lomax and Blake,

I know age and booze have addled my brain, but didn't you guys both own this exact same bike within the past 18 months?

And Blake, didn't you arrange to sell it as you rode home from your fly and ride?

Blake had a 1980 R100RS and I still have my 1984 R100RS. So no this one is not one we have both owned.

I am not up on Beemers, is that price reasonable? Something special about that year and model?

Hard to tell from the poor quality pics. This time of year it would need to be in pretty good overall condition to fetch that. Needs to be seen in person and ridden and maybe some kind of PPI (someone knowledgeable to check it out)
If in good condition it is a great price.

The 1977 R100RS was the first year they made that model. It sold new for around $4500 so was quite pricey for the time, just like all BMW's They made that model up until 1984 when they only produced 250 Last Edition bikes world wide. This was to be the LAST of the line and had the high compression heads, bigger carbs, and Brembo disk brakes all around. Then in 1989 they came out with the R100RS again (pissing off a lot of collectors BTW) but it had the single rear shock and for some reason went back to a rear drum brake. That was made for a couple more years until they came out with the R1100 engine.

As for value it is what kind of condition it is in and how much a buyer is willing to pay. I know where you can get a 1980 R100RS that is in great shape for the same price or maybe a little less ?? The R80S and R100S bikes are going for huge dollars today. So if it is in good shape that seems to be a fair price. I personally would want an 78 and up bike as they had the rear disk brake, I think they went to the Brembo brakes in 83 but am not positive, but the drums functioned good. The dual seat option also adds some value to it as the Solo seats are really hard to find these days. It looks like the side covers may have been repainted as I believe that the 77 models all had black side covers. For that matter I don't know if the 77 models(produced in 76) even came in white, they are usually Silver Blue for that year. No side bags and no rear luggage rack detract from the price.

Heck the Saint rode a 77 in the TV series even.

I wish prices were lower than they were. I just paid $4K for a bike that needs a little bit of work that sold brand new for $1920, and stole it. DOH

there were differences from '77 on... from ATE vs. Brembo front brakes, flywheel weight, Nikasil vs. iron liners, types of point setups...

not quite that soon....but close

I had no plans to sell it until Charlie came over to see how it fit him....as he was looking.
It fit, that was that.


I may completely love a bike...but if you offer to buy it, I will happily move on to the next. There's just too many I want to try before I call it a day.

Today's craigslist finds......

But wasn't 77 the only year for the rear drum on the Early RS? That is what I was referring to in my post .

Thanks. Two different bikes but it sure makes that $3300 Goldwing look nice.

Beginning in 78 the rear brake was a disk unit. White was not offered the first year, only the silver/ blue color with black side covers. In 78 a "Motorsport" version was offered in white with the red/blue pinstripes.
For the 77 you had your choice of single or dual seat. Many buyers bought both.

All RS thru 84 had 40 mm carbs, tho there were 3 or 4 different jettings, depending on the year and state they were sold in.
It was the exhaust pipes that went from 40 mm to 38 mm in 1981 when BMW added the crossover pipe.

The bike has been repainted. The brake calipers are blue anyway which was only on the 77. Can't tell if the rims have the blue stripe or not.

Danged, this thread almost makes it sound like we know what we are talking about. NOT.

And who is this darmahman and why did he sell me a trailer that keeps bringing home strays.
