'78 R100RS Belgian Police Special
(Or Best Offer)
1978 R100RS, metallic red over gray, 40 mm exhaust & kick start.
There were supposedly 100 or so of these bikes shipped to Butler & Smith, all euro spec (40mm) with this paint job, kick start and 4 way flashers. The unconfirmed story is that it was an order cancelled by the Belgian Police, and BMW had to do something with the bikes......
I found this one in Texas several years ago. Original, exc. condition and with ridiculously low miles. The bike hadn't been stored properly, and the motor needed attention. It received Seibenrock pistons, Nikasil cylinders and Ted Porter did the heads. After being lovingly and methodically broken in, the bike then went on to spin a rod bearing........so the motor came out again. Dave, at Quality Cycle (our local AirMarshal), re-did the motor, tweaking the valve seats a bit and installed an excellent condition used crank. The bike was again carefully broken in, re-torquing the heads at certain increments. The bike currently has ~36K, and I believe they are original miles.
Happy to have the bike submitted for a Pre-purchase inspection. Bike now located in Bay Area (San Ramon), so shop should be in that general area. Pic's show the bike on field at the '15 Quail Motorcycle Gathering.....it also did a few laps at Laguna Seca (-:
Krauser bags, air pump, tools, manual......it's all here and bike is ready to be ridden!
I have 4 special old Airheads, and want to get down to one or two........thus the Belgian's availability. Bike can be delivered in SW for fuel cost,.....but you should definitely consider a fly and ride.
