    Selling my 1981 BMW R100 standard. Just under 77K miles and located in Charlottesville, VA. I've had the bike for about 5 years, and it's been a great bike but I just don't ride it enough to justify keeping it (plus I am adding a new bike and don't have room in the garage). Previous couple of owners have done a ton of work - basically all of the major items for a bike with these miles. Within the last 14k miles it has had a complete top end rebuild, transmission rebuild, new clutch, new rear shocks, rebuilt alternator, and new diode board (along with a bunch of other minor stuff). Since I have had the bike, I have put in a new starter, new front discs and pads, new rear brake shoes, and new final drive seal. I haven't ridden it much the last two years so just did a mini carb clean and rebuild. It runs really well! The bike is not a beauty queen (has a few dents, scuffs, etc), but is mechanically sound and would be a great bike to either just ride or candidate for cosmetic restoration.

    In addition to the bike, included are a pair fairish condition hard bags, couple of different style handlebars, the original discs and shoes, the old starter (in case you want to rebuild it), the original manual, a clymer manual, and some miscellaneous maintenance papers from previous owners. One of the pictures is the write up that the 2 owner ago seller wrote up talking about some of the work done on the bike. Also, the bike does have a corbin seat.

    Asking $3,500

    A boost and a note to say I just put $800 into the bike today - new front and rear tire, valve check, carb adjustments, and very minor brake work. The bike is running absolutely fantastic!! Even with the work I just had done I'm keeping the price the same at $3500 (but will need to stick pretty firm to that number).

    Any interest in selling the dash pad (BMW calls it an impact plate)? I have an '81 RT and the dash pad is toast. PM if you you're interested, or perhaps the new owner would like to part with it.

    Nice bike and GLWS.
