Just a few years after introducing the R90/6 and R90S, BMW upped the capacity of its range-topping flat-twins to 980cc for the 1977 season in the form of the R100/7 series, the flagship of this new line-up being the fully-faired R100RS superbike. Although styled like a super-sports machine, the R100RS was actually more of a sports-tourer, which did it no harm whatsoever in BMW's traditional market sector. This R100RS has had only two owners from new: the current one since May 1987. Always reliable, 'PKN 859W' was used up to 1997 and since then has formed part of the vendor's private collection, which is now being downsized. Boasting lightened flywheels and said to be very fast, the machine would make a very worthwhile restoration project and is offered with insurance paperwork, Swansea V5 document and a quantity of MoT certificates (most recent expired May 1997).
