The BMW R 100 RS
Photos and info on a 1984 BMW R100RS “Last Edition” motorcycle I once owned.
I purchased from a friend, who was the second owner.
It was in absolutely mint condition; includes the bags, dual saddle, original tool kit, original BMW “trouble light”, original air pump and more.

Here’s a nice cutaway drawing of a later model R100RS | Here’s a site devoted to the 1977 R100RS, which was the first model year for this bike | The 1978 R100RS Motorsport site | Twan’s BMW R100RS site; he no longer updates it, but it is a nice reference to this model | The Bolt Guy has stainless steel bolt kits to replace all of the bolts on your Airhead Beemer | Interesting one-page story on falling in and out of love with an R100RS

BMW R100RS Tires
Tire sizes for the R100RS are the 3.25-19 front and 4.00-18 rear. Modern size replacements are 100/90-19 front and 120/90-18 rear, which will fit the ’84 and probably other model years.
Tires are available in these sizes from Avon (AM18 F/R); Bridgestone (BT45); Continental (Blitz, TK11/TK12 F/R); Metzeler (ME33 front and ME99A rear); Michelin (Macadam 50 & 50E).
Metzeler recommends a 100/90-19 front and 4.00-18 rear. I use the Conti’s on my ’84 and they work great!
