Very clean bike.The smoking is usually caused by oil bypassing the rings after the engine has been turned off and you lean it on its sidestand.Before you lean it over to the left onto its sidestand,lean it to the right for a moment after turning it off.The oil will drain into the pan (at least most of it will).The miles on your RS is nothing for the piston rings if she's been taken care of...great find.

Great K100RS too. I used to sell those when they were new! It was an interesting time. Airheads still available, K100 and K75 models on the floor, and the new R1100RS just coming out.

They were the Legendary Motorcycles of Germany then. The ones that remain still are. Everything else from BMW is suspect.

At todays exchange rate I paid $1200

At that price you got a beautiful classic BMW. Those are known to easily go WELL over 200,000 miles with no engine work. Two members in my BMW club exceeded 225,000 on their K-bikes.

The smoking, after the bike is parked on the sidestand, is a very common characteristic of the K-bikes. But it is not necessarily caused by crankcase oil seeping by worn rings, because the oil sump level is actually below the pistons. More often it is caused by oil mist that had condensed in the air box (the crankcase breather is routed into the airbox). When the bike is parked on the sidestand that oil can dribble down into whichever throttle body is the lowest, and at startup the smoke is caused by that very minimal oil being burned in the combustion chamber.

To put your mind at ease, have a compression test done. If it comes back in spec, then you only have the typical K-bike Startup smoke and nothing to worry about it. Ride it, enjoy it!

$550 before new tires, chain, sprockets, tune up, etc... Got it home and cleaned the carbs, added gas and a battery... went for a ride! The cases came with my DR650, the mounts I made. Been riding the thing for a few months and have about 6000 miles of my own on it. (17,000 miles now.)

Too bad my first post here is with a crappy cell phone pic... but I just happened to remember I wanted to put this up.

1970 CB350 bought for $200.. missing carbs, rear brake lever, battery, clutch/brake levers, center stand, key switch, drive chain, rear taillight, air filters, throttle/tach cable, mirrors, horn, header had a missing flange, cracked speedometer..



And it had these dumb glass pack mufflers. I new it was never going to be a pretty bike, but I got it all tuned up and had a lot of fun blasting around town on it. About $250-300 worth of parts into it, then I got tired of riding around on the stock tires and installed some new ones before selling it.



1973 Yamaha MX360 given to me for free by a friend of my dad's who had ice raced it as a younger lad. Cleaned the carb, converted for pre-mix, rode it around my parking lot a couple of times and seized it due to a big exhaust leak and/or gunk in the bottom/top end.

Had a friend weld the crack in the pipe, flushed the bottom end, rebuilt the top end with a fresh piston + rings, hone job, small end bearing, new gaskets all around. Rear shocks stuck, no rebound in front fork.. useless tires, laid it down on the grass once and decided it wasn't for me. Sold it for $400 to an old dirt rider who liked the old thumpers.

The small gas tank looks like a toaster oven. Usually called toaster tanks.
