Lot Details
1978 BMW 980cc R100S & Squire Sidecar
Registration no. WVN 510S
Frame no. 6065200
Engine no. 6065200
BMW made variations of their trademark boxer twins until the late '70s when their four-cylinder engines made an appearance. It was assumed that the sporty twins which were then introduced were an 'end-of –line' but this proved incorrect, the new 1000cc R100S inaugurating a powerful series which has outlasted the fours. This sound example of the R100S, little-used of late, has been well-maintained, including the fitting of electronic ignition, and is coupled to an excellent example of a Squire single-seater sidecar, a fast and well-mannered combination. Equipped with a full pannier / top-box set, as well as sidecar seat-belts, it comes with the original cockpit fairing, a spare screen and tonneau, history file and V5C.
