Description
This sale consists of two items as described below and shown in attached drawings and photographs that are offered for sale together for $400 plus shipping from Omaha Nebraska.

Item 1. BMW motorcycle Touring Case set (left and right sides), shown in the Max BMW motorcycle website parts fiche as: Housing Bottom Left (to 04/89) BMW P/N: 46 54 9 062 853, Housing Bottom Right (to 04/89) BMW P/N: 46 54 9 062 854, and both left side and right side Covers, BMW P/N: 46 54 1 237 992. These cases were off a 1983 BMW R100RS. To my knowledge these same cases were used on other BMW airhead motorcycles of the similar style and age but I leave it to you to confirm your application.

This item consists of all pieces shown on the attached drawing and photographs. The original Folding Metal Holding Strap was replaced on both cases with the equivalent holding strap used on later model airhead cases, Holding Strap – L=180 mm (from 04/89) BMW P/N 46 54 2 300 441, shown as item 8 on the drawing and as seen in the photographs.

The cases use the flat style locks that are fully functional. Two of the same Key are included that each operate all six locks securing the Case Covers to the Case Housings and secure the Cases to the Case Holder, BMW P/N: 46 54 1 239 487 (item 2 below).

Both the left and right case Covers have cracks and other imperfections as shown on the photographs that were present when I purchased the motorcycle in 2005. In 2005 both Covers were reinforced by solvent welding black ABS plastic strips (shown in the photographs) to the inside surfaces of the Covers to reinforce the Covers, prevent further cracking, and improved weather tightness. The cases are cosmetically imperfect but are solid and no further cracking has occurred.

The Housing Bottoms Left and Right, are no longer available from BMW. New Covers are shown on the Max BMW website parts fiche for $128 each.

The provided drawing is from Max BMW website parts fiche revised to show the replaced later model holding strap, item 8.

Item 2. BMW motorcycle Case Holder set, BMW P/N: 46 54 1 239 487 as shown on the Max BMW website parts fiche, in matt black painted finish. This consists of individual parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 on the provided drawing.

This Case Holder set was off a 1983 BMW R100RS. To my knowledge this item was used on other BMW airhead motorcycles with dual rear shock absorbers and DOES NOT fit post 1984 single shock airhead motorcycles, but I leave it to you to confirm your application. This item shows minor paint imperfections and normal wear marks but is structurally sound. This item is priced at $422 new from BMW.

The provided drawing is from Max BMW website parts fiche modified to remove the parcel rack and other minor parts NOT INCLUDED in this sale.
