1978 BMW R100RS Motorsport limited


The fact that the R100RS remains one of the most practical long-distance mounts to this day is testament to the brilliance of Muth’s wind-tunnel-designed, nine-piece, frame-mounted fairing that transforms the underpowered boxer engine and conservative chassis into a serious touring package.

The top speed of around 125mph was impressive, but it’s the ability of the R100RS to maintain a 100mph cruising speed for hours on end that makes it a true classic.

Maintenance is simple; valve clearances are by traditional screw and locknut, with the opposed flat-twin engine layout providing easy access to the engine’s top end. This wonderful matching numbers R100RS also comes with rare factory hard case paniers.

ESTIMATE £6,100- £7,200
