BMW had great success with its long-running R1100S, and brought home some trophies, at least in the Boxer Cup marque series and some longer endurance races. The racey Boxer Cup Replika has Randy Mamola's signature and some interesting updates from the S. This one has just break-in miles, and looks terrific.
At least until the R1200S came out, the R1100S had the ultimate boxer engine, the 1085cc making 98 hp with the help of single overhead cams actuating four valves per side. The BCR sports carbon valve covers and a Laser exhaust. The R1100S used BMW-centric Telelever front end and Paralever rear which included shaft drive, but the Replika used longer fork tubes to increase possible lean angle, and a shorter rear torque arm to sharpen up handling. Standard BMW dampers were superseded by fully adjustable Öhlins on the BCR. Brakes are up to BMW's fine standard, and though ABS was available it's not present on this example.
Leading a sheltered life in west coast Florida, this BCR looks excellent in the factory's white and blue checkerboard. Unadulterated but not neglected, the owner claims a new timing chain but this would have meant a huge event, so I'm thinking ( hoping ! ) they are referring to a new alternator belt. Notes from the eBay auction:
An eye-catcher for sure, especially when pulling into a BMW dealership
Meticulously maintained in Air Conditioned, Dehumidified Space
Started and driven short distances every other week using octane boosted marine fuel
Brand new battery, timing belt (chain), Oil-Filter-Plugs changed at least annuallyRides beautifully, more comfortable than a Sports Touring Bike than a Sports Bike
