Produced in: Polaris Graphite; Startos Silver; Dunkel Red; Alaska Blue; Pearl White; Alaska Blue/Madison; Police White/Bright Minz Green; Gold Metallic; Silver Metallic; Motorsport White; Ocean Blue (Blue Motorsport); Dunkel Blue/Hell Silver. Motorsport Pinstriping: 113 Red; 114 Hell (Light) Blue; 115 Dunkel (Dark) Blue. This list may not be comprehensive. Not all colours would be available in all markets or for all years.

The original R100RS was introduced in 1976 for the 1977 Model Year and was produced in Silver Blue Code 530. This 99% original example belonging to Bob Wakeman has a genuine 18,000 miles (2004) 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.

1978 R100RS MotorSport (original paintwork).  Police White/Rennesport Red (Code 133). 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.

Apparently the John Player Special was a limited edition in black with gold wheels and decals, released to coincide with the racing 6-series JPS cars
