The 1978 BMW R100S is the last model that was offered with the spoke wheels and rear drum brake. It was purchased 6 years ago, and refurbished by the previous owner in 2011 with fresh paint, upgraded suspension and engine rebuild. It currently shows 60K miles, cold starts quickly, idles smoothly, and runs very strong. The bike is very complete and period correct with no modifications. It comes with the owner and service manuals, original tools kit, bag mounts, a clean CA title and receipts and pictures for the rebuild (it also has the lock still in the frame tube under the tank). The original color was red, but it was finished in a high quality BMW Hellblau color during the restoration, which still looks immaculate with a few very minor scratches. the suspension was upgraded with new springs and shocks from progressive. Original Weinmann spoke wheels are super clean. The engine was fitted with new pistons, rings and timing chain 10K mikes ago.
