I think if someone could buy it for $3500 it would be a very good deal.
Looks great with the SP upper Steve. Excellent weather protection as you know.I bought a '91 R 100 RT a couple of years ago...Has all cases as well.
If that bike was a book, the publishers would be getting sued for plagiarism! The ad ought to at least give Guzzi credit ....Lannis
Lannis, can you finish after the dot dot dot?Bob
Sorry, overuse of the ellipsis is my annoying internet-era habit instead of using LOL and "4 u" and such."If that bike was a book, the publishers would be getting sued for plagiarism! The ad ought to at least give Guzzi credit ...." for the owner's use of the Mandello wind-tunnel-developed Guzzi SP fairing on this BMW. Period. Lannis
If on close inspection it checks out, offer $4,000. If he doesn't budge, pay him. It's worth it.
Got it. Thanks! Didn't pay any attention to the fairing. Speaking of BMW airheads and fairings, I'd still like to own an R100RS, with the BMW (Hans Muth) designed fairing. Although the earlier models with higher performance cams and larger Bing carbs generated 8-10 more hp, I'd prefer one with Monolever, built on the R80 chassis.Bob
I believe BMW made 200 R100 Classics for 1991. The Germans are loathe to let running gear, chassis, body shells go to waste when new models are coming out. Hence, MB, Porsche, BMW always have special editions to get rid of them. This bike was nothing special but Iíve loved the look for 25 years. Basically, the factory was moving to the paralever layout and had these monolevers sitting around. An absolutely wonderful bike. I wish I had the room.
My Mystic is paralever. A special edition R100R. In 1992 BMW only produced K bikes with mono lever and R bikes with paralever. Iíve never seen what the big deal was about. Mono lever is much less potential trouble. When I was younger and not so smart , I would ride my 88 R100RS with some others at triple digits on Alligator Alley in south Florida from Naples to Fort Lauderdale. Back then the cars were just as fast as we were. Youíve probably never experienced a sport high speed fairing as good as Hans Muthís R100RS. Absolute stability - like you could get off the bike and walk on the pavement at triple digits. And yes - he is still alive! I guess I should have kept that bike.
The previous monolever bikes were OK for touring but nowhere close for sport riding.
Some guys managed to be pretty sporting on the monolevers, and even the twin shocks. But take a look at what they did to the 90S so it could win Daytona. So you're probably right about that. The only trouble with riding a GS sportingly is that damn drive shaft and failing u-joints. There's a reason the R80G/S was the choice of round-the-world travelers.
Paralever is a key element in what made the R100GS of 1988 onward a much better sport bike than any production BMW produced before that time. It was actually the best sport bike BMW made for a number years, although eventually when the the R100R came along it was better, mostly due to much improved front brakes. The previous monolever bikes were OK for touring but nowhere close for sport riding.
