This 1990 BMW R100GS is finished in Marrakech Red and powered by a 980cc boxer twin mated to a 5-speed transmission with shaft drive to the rear wheel. The bike is equipped with factory panniers, tail bag mounts, and bash guards, as well as factory graphics. The seller recently acquired the bike from its prior owner of 18 years, and has since serviced the engine’s top-end and had the gearbox fitted with an updated output shaft circlip by Virginia Motorrad. New tires of the buyer’s choice will be fitted prior to delivery. This R100GS is offered at no reserve with an owner’s manual, tool roll, and a South Carolina title in the seller’s name.
