We are all guilty of using too many superlatives which make them less meaningful, so its very satisfying to let off a barrage when you know it can be fully vindicated.

Julien's Perspective

Some thoughts on this model

This is certainly the rarest of opportunities to own what must be one of the most original, low mileage and perfectly preserved BMW Motorcycles available today.

Evidently a collectors piece, it has been for many years part of a small but discerning private collection of motorcycles and fine motor cars that includes early BMWs, Bristols and a host of important Land Rover products.

And so the superlatives: This RS is unmarked, the chrome work and paintwork are flawless, panniers/luggage are as new, whilst both the tool roll and first aid kit are all present and unused. The motor bike's odometer shows just 90 miles. It's a truly remarkable example and testament to storing things properly; this has happily been in a bespoke dehumidified garage complex.

As one would expect, the history file contains not only the original hand books, MOTs and maintenance invoices but a host of additional provenance items - these include further original BMW brochures, 4 of them actually which chart the model in sequence, and original photographs from the last supplying dealer. There is a note of the new price back in 1978, an eye watering, £2,999!

Along with its stable mate, a 1979 BMW R100 RT, similarly original and unrestored, this BMW motorbike is available to be inspected at my Guildford showroom - It would be a pleasure to answer any further questions you might have, please call me directly on +44 (0) 7788 865700.
