How much is a R100GS worth

Postby alastair1490 » Wed Feb 15, 2017 9:56 pm

I'm about to take on a R100GS from my brother. It's a 1988 bumblebee with 95000 on the clock and not mint condition by any means but was working recently and has an MOT that is about to run out. I've been searching classified ads but there are so few out there it's difficult to find a comparison to work out a fair price for it. Any ideas?

Very difficult to say without seeing it.

But a wrecker might make £1800, and a mint original £7000+++

A decent looked after running bike with reasonable mileage will make £5000 fairly easily.
Where about are you?

@95,000 "miles"? and not in great condition

I'd be budgeting for an Engine refurb (exhaust valves i.e. the valve heads have a bad habit of dropping off at around 45K miles and quite likely valve guide replacement, Gearbox and Propshaft overhaul / rebuild / replacement

£1800 -£2200

Islandmagee in case you're interested?
