The Frame Game: 78 BMW R100RS with Krauser frame and 4-valve heads

Krauser_BMW_1

What you are looking at is a 1978 BMW R100RS - but that is not what is key. The big deal here surrounds the Krauser parts. For those of you not in the know, Krauser is a Bimota-like company creating products exclusive to BMW. Think frames, think bodywork, think performance parts, and think expensive (and rare) pieces of history. Provided as kits, Krauser worked to transform sedate BMWs into fire breathing sport bikes with gorgeous perimeter frames, four-valve heads, and more. This particular bike sports not only rare Krauser pieces, but additional custom details as well.

Krauser_BMW_2

1978 Krauser BMW R100RS for sale on eBay

Krauser_BMW_4

From the seller:
Offered for sale is a custom, one of a kind, MKM (Michael Krauser Motorcycles) framed BMW. Built from a 1978 R100RS.
Oregon title in my name, last plated in California.
Bikes with this frame are currently featured in Motorcycle Classics magazine, March/April 2014, but mine is unfaired and has many more high performance parts.
It is basically a race bike with a license plate. It is not currently rideable.

I purchased the motorcycle from the builder himself in early 2000. It was featured in an article in a motorcycle magazine in August 1988.
I will include a copy with the bike. The previous owner (builder) stated in the magazine feature about the bike that he would "Forget about cost, forget all the limitations, make anything I wanted. The wheels and 13 inch brakes with four piston calipers are from Performance Machine. The engine has a lot of special pieces; it's1108 cc with Krauser 4 valve heads and a lot of head work; 12:1 Venolia pistons: a custom built handmade aluminum flywheel; a cast magnesium oil pan made in Germany, along with other magnesium parts, all the goodies. It took about a year and a half and 20 grand to complete." (in 1980s dollars)

When I bought it, the previous owner/builder told me that it has had the crankshaft turned and balanced, has a new high performance cam, rods had been balanced, and that the extra heads, transmission, rear end and shaft drive are all OK.
I have not had it running or done any work on it and therefore am unable to furnish much first hand information about it's mechanical condition. I am unable to provide mileage amount, as bike is not equipped with an odometer.

Krauser_BMW_11

This particular example is a work in progress, apparently. While the original builder spared no expense in the build, this bike has apparently never run for the current owner. The bike has an Oregon title and California plate, but no speedo or odometer. The bike has wonderful cast magnesium case pieces and PM components, but appears to be missing intake and exhaust pieces. So it looks as if this bike was partially parted out at some point. Additionally, the bodywork appears to be incomplete - although with kit-built specials this is hard to determine. Certainly the bodywork is far from the MKM 1000 level, so it is difficult to determine what spec this bike strives to be.

Krauser_BMW_14

There are a lot of parts on this particular bike - and the parts are worth much more than the "R100RS" whole. Bidders will likely be interested in the frame and heads first, followed by other components. There is a lot here with which to build a classic "kit" bike. Got the Krauser bug? You're probably not alone. Check it out here and then leave a comment and let us know what you think!

On the touring side of sporty: 1993 BMW R100RS

For Sale: 1993 BMW R100RS

When it comes to selling a bike, presentation is everything. And this, my friends, is what makes this bike RSBFS worthy. Sure, the BMW R100RS models are reasonably rare - especially the final year made, like this one. And sure, this bike leans a little further over to the "tour" side of "sport touring" than most RSBFS posts. But look at the pictures and tell me when you have seen a cleaner motorcycle of this vintage. Original owner, less than 4k miles, and plenty of pictures to peruse - THIS is the way to advertise your bike.

I will readily admit that the 1000cc boxer motor is not the most powerful in the world. They are stone reliable, however, and are well-known to outlast most riders. This one looks clean enough to eat off of - only you might make it dirty!

From the seller:
Rare 1992 BMW R100 RS. 3,949 miles. Bike is all original, except for replaced battery and front tire. Original owner with all documents, manuals, toolkit and battery charger. Everything that came with the bike in 1992 is included. This bike has always been stored indoors in climate-controlled environments. All markings and assembly decals are still on the motorcycle. There are no dents, accidents or scratches on the paint. The few stone chips (maybe three?) were touched up using BMW touchup paint from the dealer. This bike is rare and is the last year for this model style with wind tunnel designed fairing from the mid seventies. The pinstripes are hand painted and in perfect condition. It runs excellently as one would expect from a bike with less than 4,000 miles. Last registered in California in 2004. Originally purchased in Maryland and shipped to California in 1999. It was once ridden in a sudden summer rain shower for about 30 minutes, otherwise never in any foul weather. The saddlebags are rather soft plastic and have a few marks on them. The bike was never dropped or in any accident (unless you consider the unfortunate owl that flew into the bike right in front of my left boot/cylinder head one evening – there are a few small marks where the talons made contact with the bike at the bottom of the fairing – these have been touched up). Bike is guaranteed to be just as I describe here and will not disappoint. It is excellent in every way for an original bike with less than 4,000 miles. E-mail with any questions. I collect and restore vehicles and this bike I have treasured for almost 20 years.

These oilhead BMWs will eat up miles all day long, and get you to your destination relaxed and comfortable. The RS fairing is designed to envelope the rider in a still pocket of air, and the riding position is neutral, with a slight forward cant. Fill up the detachable hardbags (long known as the best in the business), and journey off to points unknown - without ever seeing another rider on the same bike. Not a bad way to go.

To get in on the bidding for this beauty, or to just drool over some of the high-res pictures included by the seller,

1978 BMW R100RS Motorsport For Sale

So while only 200 of these were made available for sale in the U.S., it's not exactly of the same genre of motorcycle I've been posting. Which is exactly why I'm posting it!

1978 BMW R100RS Motorsport Model For Sale on Portland Craigslist for $4500:

quote from seller's Craigslist post:

One of 200. Rare, collectible bike. Original with period upgrades - San Jose fork brace and rear swing arm and dual plug heads. 40mm bing carbs. New brakes, calipers, ss brake lines and rear master cylinder. Tires have less than 1000 miles on them (Metzlers). Some scratches, no dents. Original; paint in very good, but not perfect condition. Needs restoration to show quality - or use as is for an amazing and rare driver. Come see it - these are the best pictures I have. Asking $4500 or best offer

I'm not sure why, but I'm intrigued by this bike. It's bodywork is quite ugly yet it has many nice features and I'll bet that fairing actually is useful. Plus it has the option of fitting handsome and real luggage. What's your take?

Here's an interesting first hand account of R100RS Motorsport ownership.
