The Appeal

At the turn of the 1980’s the R100S was considered BMW’s fastest sports tourer.
The simple lightweight design of the one-litre Bavarian ‘boxer’ is perfectly set up for brisk 40-80 mph acceleration and is of course renowned for it’s enduring touring capabilities.  
Rarely does a restored bike appear like it has just come from the factory, but this amazing example looks spot-on in every respect.   
Previously part of a collection, this ‘Exclusive Sport’ variant of the R100 family was meticulously rejuvenated to a very high professional standard over recent years.
Sporting metallic silver paintwork and triple-tone blue stripping, the previous owner believes that this limited edition R100S is one of just 50 produced during 1980, 25 of which were delivered to Europe and 25 to the U.S. 
Costing thousands to restore, we would go as far as to say this BMW looks cosmetically perfect - surely a collectors dream machine.
