This 1982 BMW R100RT was sold new at Country Cycle Shop in Montoursville, Pennsylvania and was acquired by the seller 3 years ago from the believed first owner. The bike is powered by a 980cc opposed twin with a 5-speed transmission and shaft drive, and the seller has fitted new handlebars, shocks, and a fresh battery. In preparation for sale the seller cleaned the carburetors, re-torqued the cylinder heads, and adjusted the valves. 29k miles are shown, of which the seller has added approximately 2,500. This R100RT is now offered at no reserve with the factory tool kit, owner’s manual, and a clean South Carolina title in the seller’s name.

Stone chips are noted on the fairing, along with paint blemishes near the base of the left mirror and spider cracks on the lower corner of the windscreen. The paint at the rear of the fuel tank is worn from contact with the seat, which the seller notes is visible only when the seat is open.

The air-cooled 980cc opposed twin was factory rated at 70 horsepower and features dual 40mm Bing carburetors. A 5-speed transmission transfers power though a drive shaft to a 32/11 final drive. Recent work performed by the seller included cleaning and synchronizing the carburetors, re-torqing the cylinder heads, and adjusting the valves. An Odyssey battery was fitted, and the oil pan gasket and lubricants replaced. No service records are available, but the prior owner kept notation of the services performed in the owner’s manual.
