1977 BMW R100RS Project: Getting Started

I picked this bike up in April 2016. Finally, on September 1, I got started on it. I had to finish up work on the 1975 R75/6 “S” update and completed that in July. I’ve put about 600 miles on that bike and its running well. You can see all the work I’ve done on the R75/6 here:

I wrote up a project page and added my build plan. You can find these here:

My goal is to complete the build by September 1, 2017 so I can ride the bike to the 40th anniversary get together in Pennsylvania later in September.

I will be posting a write-up on how I repaired the numerous cracks and broken parts on the fairing panels soon.

Here’s what I brought home, and what it looks like in the shop now.  Progress is being made.

  1. Lucky You! Great looking bike! I have a question about the statement you made…”My goal is to complete the build by September 1, 2017 so I can ride the bike to the 40th anniversary get together in Pennsylvania later in September.”… Where in PA is the 40th Anniversary and Where is it being held? I checked the ABC calendar and cannot find anything about it.
