FIRST SERIES 1977 BMW R100 RS "SAINT"
Customer and long term friend, Rick Gard is downsizing his collection of BMW Airheads,
Anybody from Brisbane or the Gold Coast will know Rick as a BMW mechanic, Service manager and latterly, BMW Salesman for the Morgan and Wacker group.
This bike is one he collected for himself and over time he went right through the bike and made good anything that was needed.
Below is a list of works he has carried out : In Rick's own words:
1977 BMW R100RS First Model - Owned between 4 and 5 years and I was told I was the second owner. The bike has 96,000klms. In the time I have owned it, I have reconditioned it along the way as follows:
* Repainted original colour
* Powder coated frame
* New spokes
* New clutch and crankshaft seal
* Replaced tyres - Pirelli Demon Sports
* Replaced battery
* Replaced front fork seals and oil
* Rebuilt front brake caliper
* Replaced brake lines
* Replaced rear diff seal
* Repacked steering head bearings and swing arm bearings
* Repacked wheel bearings
* Replaced points, plugs and filters
* Clean and balance carburettors
* Replaced foot peg rubbers
In addition, it has an owners' manual and toolkit and panniers.
Compression 150lbs both cylinders.
It has Staintune exhaust.
Registered single seat.
To completely finish the job, the calipers need to be re-annodised and the blue pin lines need to be re-done on the respoked wheels.
Anyone who knows Rick would know that with anything he does, what you see is what you get. He is asking $12,000 firm and for myself, I believe the bike is worth that money.
