The Ultimate Riding Machine
details on sale/listing are at end of blog
A winter project, this bike is ready to depart my garage. It was in excellent condition when acquired but I freshened it up a bit since it sat unused for over 10 years. Starts instantly, fast, silky smooth running and whisper quiet.
|Deep Jewel Green Metallic, 1984 R100RS. Crystal clear headlight cover and windscreen.|
As I take these photos and get the bike out in the light, it's quite obvious why these machines are a cult classic. Nothing looks like an R100RS.
| Bings are all new inside. Shifter rubber is new. Petcocks rebuilt, Fuel lines new as well.|
If the gold R90 (not a real 'S' bike) interests you, I could be talked out of it, then i'd keep this green one.
Basic work this winter: Oil, transmission, driveshaft, final drive and brake fluids serviced. Carb rebuild, petcock rebuilt, New rubber bits, battery and front master cylinder purchased and installed. Finally some new decals, a lot of soap, wax and viola. Odometers shows 50,000 miles.
This is the bike you're looking for.
