Recent R100RS owner ..

Postby Bill Black » Tue Dec 19, 2017 12:29 pm

Hello to all , I have just bought and will collect tomorrow a R100RS , its not quite a box of bits more of a major chunks removed non-runner it looks to be mostly all there i'm hoping i haven't missed anything major ! Someone had begun to "cafe racer" it and has cut the mudguard support hoop off the rear sub-frame . I own and love a 1989 K100RS so i wonder how i will get on with the R ..... I am in Co. Meath in Ireland and my large stable contains such oddballs as an XS1100 with Watsonian Palma , a Grinnall Scorpion , a Sanglas 400 and other strange machines . Plan is put it together again as is and see if it has potential , Its an ex UK bike with 65k showing on the clock and it looks to have been relatively well cared for , fingers crossed , no doubt I will be looking for advice soon
Regards
Bill

The Sanglas is ex Irish Army , its a 1972 400 i was trying to find one I had owned a long time ago which was 2331 ZI reg. and ended up with 2332 ZI its sister bike 😊, I now know where my old bike is though so maybe I'll get it back one day ..... By the way is there a source for a parts list I can download for the R100 anywhere it would be good for figuring out what's missing

Hi Bill,

Below is a link to the RealOEM BMW Parts Fiche - put the last 7 digits of your VIN into the 'Serial Number' box and select 'Search' - the result of the Search will be given at the bottom of the page and will identify that VIN.

Using your VIN in this way identifies the EXACT build of your bike and the appropriate Part Numbers.
The diagrams are also useful showing how the parts are incorporated in the assembly, however, note that the diagrams tend to be generic and may not be exact for your build although the Parts List will be:

From the VIN result, you can then go to the Parts Diagrams and get the correct BMW Part Number for every component of the bike.

Using the VIN number in this way means that ONLY the parts specific to that VIN will be listed in the Parts List below the diagrams and is the safest way to get the correct BMW parts for your bike:

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do?kind=M&arch=0



I suggest that you get hold of a Haynes or Clymer manual for your bike as each contain a wealth of information and tips on maintaining and/or rebuilding a bike. They also contain Wiring Diagrams.

There are lots of experts on this forum who can help you out. It is better to post a query here beforehand than dive in regardless and maybe break something through lack of knowledge.

You can get new and used genuine BMW parts for your bike from:
Local BMW Dealer (new parts only) https://www.bmw-motorrad.co.uk/en/home.html#/filter-all
Motorworks https://www.motorworks.co.uk
Motobins (new parts only) https://www.motobins.co.uk
James Sherlock https://www.james-sherlock.co.uk

All above trusted suppliers and helpful with advice on purchases. The Motorworks website also accepts BMW Part Numbers (no spaces).

If you put your Co Meath location in your profile it helps for assistance, meets etc and we don't have to keep asking you where you are. :smile:

Hi Bill,
Welcome to the Forum. Interesting mix of machines. I'm getting on for 70 and still wondering what I want to be when I grow up.

Welcome here.

Good man to save such a good bike. BIKEXIIF did a lot of damage to good airheads out there, perpetrated by self-appointed "custom builders" who went over their heads once the angle grinder was put away. A shame.
