1991 BMW K100RS

It’s a real shame that the original and only owner and longtime customer of Bob’s of this bike stopped riding this bike And failed to pickled it properly and then waited several years to call Bob and say “I need to see my bikes because a health issue is preventing me from riding any more” because several bad things happened to an otherwise pretty clean, very low mileage bike that could have easily been prevented. Fortunately they can also be easily corrected but it does involved some money being spent. The work is not particularly hard but it will need to be done to put this otherwise nice looking Beemer back on the road. A paint job on your current K100RS might cost more than what we are asking for this entire bike!

It came to Bob’s in July of 2010 and like many others just got parked in the back of the warehouse. The parts that needed to be addressed were not going to get any worse from waiting a little longer, we just didn’t think it would be 3 years. The cosmetics are pretty nice but there are a few scratches here and there. The paint on one panel does not match the others and we suspect it tipped over and had a new panel installed as there is no crash damage visible and we never did an estimate to our knowledge. The paint all looks like BMW factory work.  This customer did 95% of all his maintenance and even owned many of the costly BMW special tools over the 15 plus years he was a client having purchased several new BMW’s from us.

This one offers a fine opportunity to own a very low mileage, great looking generally and very dependable BMW model usually capable of placing tens if not hundreds of thousands of miles on before one might need to attend to service issues inside the engine or gearbox. And because it’s so clean it would be a prime candidate to part out and make a bundle of money on but again, Bob hates to see this happen on a bike that should be brought back to life and returned to safe and roadworthy condition so someone else can have fun. And we also have to share that one option for a new home for this machine, as much as we have to suggest this is with someone who already owns a higher mileage K100RS of similar vintage with poor cosmetics who might be looking for an entire bodywork swap and then a whole assortment of low cost if not free mechanical components, spare wheels and exhaust and a near perfect seat. Here are our notes from the auction with a few additions:

WHAT WE KNOW:

  • ARRIVED 08-10 W/15,205 ORIGINAL MILES
  •  STORED FOR ABOUT 2-3 YEARS WITHOUT BEING PICKLED PRIOR TO THAT
  • OWNED BY A VERY LONG TIME BOB’S CUSTOMER WHO STOPPED RIDING DUE TO HEALTH ISSUES
  • BOB’S WAS GOING TO REFURBISH THE BIKE & IT KEPT BEING PUT ON THE BACK BURNER
  •  AWITCHES, CONTROLS, SEAT, MIRRORS AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IS IN NEAR NEW/PERFECT SHAPE
  • THE TIRES ARE OLD, THE FRONT MC DNF, THERE IS SOME REAL SCIENCE IN THE GAS TANK
  • THERE IS SOME CORROSION ON THE BLACK FINISH ON FINAL DRIVE & DRIVE SHAFT HOUSING
  • ONE BOLT ON THE FRONT MASTER CYLINDER COVER IS BROKEN OFF, BUT THIS SHOULD BE REPLACED ANYWAY
  • THE SEAT, BODYWORK, SCREEN, EXHAUST, WHEELS, DISCS AND MOST ALL ARE IN BEAUTIFUL SHAPE
  • ENGINE AND GEAR BOX TURNED FREELY WHEN WE TOOK IT IN, IT’S BEEN SITTING SINCE
  • THE REAR MC STILL ACTUALTES AND RETURNS BUT MAY NOT LAST LONG AND IT NEEDS REAR PADS
  • THE OIL SIGHT GLASS IS WEEPING, THIS IS A CHEAP FIX
  • THE FUEL INJECTORS ARE LIKELY CLOGGED UP AND WOULD NEED CLEANING AT A MINIMUM
  • THERE IS SOME RUST ON  THE FRONT BRAKE HARDWARE, NOT UNCOMMON ON MANY BIKES
  • WE DON’T KNOW IF THE ABS WORKS AS WE’VE NEVER STARTED THIS BIKE, SOME DO WELL AND OTHERS DIE
  • IF WE DID ALL THE WORK WE’D WAN T TO DO TO COVER EVERYTHING IT WOULD BE SOMWHERE AROUND $3,700
  • A CLEAN MD TITLE IS READY TO REASSIGNED

WHAT WE SPECULATE OR WISH TO SHARE:

  • YOU WILL SPEND AT LEAST $500 ON THE TANK INTERNALS
  • YOU’LL NEED TO REPLACE TIRES, ALL FLUIDS, FRONT MC & MAYBE REAR NEED REPLACING
  • IT MIGHT BE A VERY ECONOMICAL LOW MILEAGE BIKE TO RESURECT IF YOU DO THE WORK
  • IT WOULD COST MORE TO PAINT A K100RS YOU OWN VS. BUYING THIS ONE AND SWAPPING ALL THE PAINTED PARTS
