BMW R100RS Photos

The original R100RS (1977 Model Year), produced in Silver Blue Code 530. This 99% original example belonging to Bob Wakeman has a genuine 18,000 miles on the clock - note the painted and pin-striped wire wheels and the polished alloy clock/voltmeter surrounds (only ever produced on this model). As far as I can discover, only 5159 were produced for Europe and  1263 for the US. For closer detail, see the colour scheme pages.

Taken from The BMW Club Journal, July 1978: Limited Edition R100RS - For the record: During the second week of May, 50 dealers from Britain were guests of BMW in Munich when the white R100RS's with rallysport stripes and white panniers were launched. 150 of them will be sold (and I think by now have been) in Britain at the cost of 3,300 each.

BMW R100RSR BMW RSR badges

Left: Supposedly a limited edition R100RSR (Australia) - never heard of it myself but the badges would indicate it's genuine. Information Courtesy of Steve Doyle: 

The story goes that the RSR was a Japan order but some were delivered by mistake to Australia.  God only knows these days.  Limited number with a badge designating the number.  Otherwise a stock R100RS. 

As you can see the lowers are missing.  The striping was meant to be red and white I believe.

I have a black 1982 RSR, with red and white pinstriping. I thought it was the only one around! I too do not have the fairing lowers fitted at the moment mainly because the fairing frame is slightly bent and the lower left panel has cracked as a result. Took the lowers off to stop the situation getting worse.Inside the cockpit my bike has a little RSR number tag but unfortunately the number was not engraved on to the plate.I suspect it was just a transfer. That transfer is long gone.

Belgian Police R100RS

BMW Belgian Police RS

Left: The Belgian Police bikes:

The story goes that the colour scheme was the Belgian Police colour.  The myth was that there was an overproduction or cancelled order leaving bikes not required.  These were then sold as the Belgian Police model. It's suggested that BMW NA were struggling to move product at the time and just repainted the bright gold metallic RS and someone started a story about the Belgian thing.  They would be "special" models and may sell better I guess.

I have no idea if any of this is true.
