This 1980 BMW R100RS is finished in silver and blue and powered by an air-cooled 980cc boxer twin paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The seller purchased the motorcycle from a German BMW dealer four years ago and has since ridden 500 of its 33k indicated kilometers (21k miles). The bike is equipped with an optional kickstarter, and a new front tire and battery have been fitted under current ownership. This R100RS is offered with hard-shell panniers, a factory tool roll, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name. The tank, full fairing, and other body parts are finished in silver and blue with Motorsport pinstripes. Multi-spoke alloy wheels are fitted with Bridgestone Battlax BT45 tires, the front of which is a recent replacement according to the seller. A small rack is mounted just behind the seat, and hard-shell pannier bags are included in the sale. Metric instrumentation includes a speedometer, tachometer, voltmeter, clock, and 5-digit odometer showing just over 33k kilometers (21k miles), approximately 500 km of which have been ridden by the seller during four years of ownership. The air-cooled 980cc boxer twin produced a factory-rated 70 horsepower with 56 lb-ft of torque when new, and sends power to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox and shaft drive. The seller notes that the bike is in need of general servicing due to inactivity. A factory tool roll is supplied with the motorcycle. A cold start video can be viewed below:
