"A rationalization of the lineup coincided with the introduction of the improved A10 engine for 1981 (post /7 series). BMW cut its basic R100 line in two. While the R100S continued as the R100CS, there was now only one basic model in the range, the R100." The R100CS was descended from the iconic R90S and offered the strongest performance but it only lasted the one-year, 1981, and only 174 came to the USA.

The R100 was offered in two versions for 1982 through 1984, the Touring and the Sport. Both were to the same specification except that Touring meant standard saddlebags and Sport, CS sport handlebar fairing and lower bars – just like the R90S! Such is the interchangeability of many BMW components some R100s were dealer "enhanced", often effectively changing one model into another at the dealership. Both factory versions weighed close to 481lb wet with a top speed of 110mph. Only 193 R100s reached America's shore in 1984 and by the next model year the new K-model was all the rage and no 1,000c boxer twins were imported. Thus, this R100 is a rare example of BMW's iconic, big air-cooled boxer.

This one owner R100, with 37,045 miles, comes with a dealer-installed CS bikini or quarter-fairing and rear luggage rack, plus Napoleon-brand bar-end mirrors. "It has been meticulously maintained by the owner; it runs and rides great" quotes the seller.
