Solo Lobo's R100GS for sale???? YUP!, (well maybe)


SOLD TO 2Trac Feb 2008.....

Well, I can hardly believe I am posting this, but I am prisoner to my obsessive-compulsive desire to own an R80G/S. I can’t make that happen until I sell my favorite bike of all time (that I have owned that is…)

Some background on me, to give you the “warm and fuzzies”, I am a bit Obsessive-compulsive and this directly translates to how I care for my bikes… in short I fix everything, optimize everything and can’t really stand for something not being/working 100% (some minor cosmetics aside). I would not hesitate to ride this bike anywhere right. This is my sixth BMW (fourth airhead), I worked at my local BMW dealer years ago and learned quite a bit while premium dealers still worked on airheads. The bike is kept in my heated garage, and plugged into a battery tender when not on the road

1993 R100GS (serial # confirms it is a PD, but does not have the PD tank)
~44,000 miles
Mystic Red, all factory stickers intact
ZERO known problems and NO maintenance/repairs needed!
TCK80’s have about ~2,500 miles
Spare set of Avon Gripsters included about 60-70% tread remaining


Upgrades and new stuff front to rear: (all done by me...)

Suspension / Front end
Ohlins rear shock new ~2K miles ago from Dan Kyle Racing
Shock Skins neoprene shock cover
Rebuilt front forks w/ new seals/oil ~2,000 miles

Brand new steering head bearings (BMW OEM)
Wunderlich 25mm handlebar risers

Acerbis “baja” front fender – high with Acerbis Aluminum brace
Touratech Handlebar “bark busters” by Acerbis

Braking
Custom machined adapter and Nissin 6-piston caliper, stainless brake line (plus machined 4-piston Nissin and ss line)
Front stainless steel brake line (new Jan 08)
Rear brakes completely dissembled, cleaned and pivots re-greased
New rear brake cable

Electrical/Charging system
New diode board – Thunderchild with solid mounts
New rotor – Motorrad Electrik
New main power wire from diode board to starter
4-way flasher upgrade
European headlight switch
Heated grips (with new grips last summer)
New plug wires
New neutral light switch
New dashboard light bulbs

Mechanical
Full top-end re-seal (~2, 000 miles ago)
New timing chain and cover seals
Hendersen Precision Machining drive shaft rebuild – medium urethane, replaceable, greaseable u-joints (0 miles)
Fully rebuilt carbs with all seals, needles and needle jets
New carb to head and to air box rubber sleeves
Rebuilt petcocks including screens
ALL CABLES ARE NEW (all throttle, choke, clutch and rear brake)
Spline lube ~1,200 miles (all looked great)
New exhaust gaskets installed (all)
New Air filter (~1,500 miles)
Magnetic drain plug for oil pan
New front and rear shaft boots
New gas cap sealing o-ring

Panniers
Touratech luggage racks
Touratech alum pannier mounting system
Studebaker engineering canyon cut aluminum luggage (like Happy Trials, cam locks, water tight seal, 4 pads locks)
Jesse Luggage rear glove box - lockable

Seating
Factory Dual seat – great shape
Factory solo seat (recovered by Sargent in “griptex” fabric)
Extender rack to fit behind solo seat – factory part
Mount and lock for each seat (2 total that is)

Other farkles
Mustang (?) tank cover
GS/PD oil pan skid plate
Wunderlich float bowl retainers
Touratech oil cooler bypass kit
Spare keys for bike, Jesse toolbox and pannier padlocks
OEM BMW tool kit (mostly complete)
Spare plugs, fuses, cables, etc
Spare sidecovers – rattle canned black
Spare fairing sides – right color, but cracked (NOT from my bike, bought as spares)
Stock air pulse emissions crap if you want it (3 sets in fact!)
Other misc stuff I am sure…

Feel free to write to hear about the maintenance history, it is very good, and like I said above, there are no problems that I know of…

Criminey.

I dont think this will last long.

But-- are you going to wait for us to offer a price?

I predict you would be giving it away for $7500. Its probably the Best Kept R100GS out there.

Known cosmetic issues:
Small section of paint missing off of the tank by the gas cap, not to metal
Left side cover trimmed to allow installation of the TT bag mounts
Left side cover cracked at the very bottom slightly
Windscreen cracked in 2 places (drilled to stop further cracking)
Left crash bar tested (a good dent) and I think one fin cracked

That’s all I can think of now..

Known mechanical things I would fix
??

And the price you may ask?

*** one note here, I may change my mind but I doubt it***

Gage, seriously man... you should ask 6500 and then let that give you a little "give" room. It's worth a solid 6k.

Everyone here knows that you're no slouch on airheads.

It ain't a PD, but alot of that is just hype anyway. (don't kill me fellas)
PD just gives it some extra weight and a bigger tank.

You'll miss it. But I suspect you have something lined up for the r80 dream and that you'll make me jealous with it. (you bastard!)

You're F'in nuts....have you ever ridden an R80 g/s for any long distance at speed?
No freakin comparison.
Many of the same problems as the R100 but with less horsepower, crappy (er) forks and no Paralever! The road stability of the R80 is awful but it's easier to ride off-road.
Strip that fairing and the windshield off that R100 and you're almost to an R80!
Dont get me wrong, I love the R80 g/s and I've even got one undergoing a restoration but I'd never give up my PD for any R80.
Just my $.02....aren't you glad you don't have to pay for it?!
Cheers,
Jorge

I was gonna suggest something similar to what Jorge said.

Get help for the obsessive compulsive disorder and hang onto the vastly superior motorcycle.

Nice work, Solo.

Re. R80G/S's: "Don't believe the hype".

It's like the R90S mystique and foo-foh-rah. Everyone knows R100S's and R100RS's are better bikes. '78 and '79 R100S's even have paint schemes that are superior in style and application to the much broohaha'ed R90S. In spite of all that, hordes of BMW lemmings shell out huge for inferior R90S's.

I don't get it.

fwiw,
Lornce

Cool!
I hope that thing has an extended swingarm!
It sounds a lot like what I'm planning for mine....but dude, to sell a pristine R100 GS for a dedicated beast....lured to the dark side you have been....Seattle winters, new meanings you will discover.
