    River Ice

    Here is a picture of my 1977 R100RS by the Niagara River on the Canadian side in the Spring. The River Ice was flowing fast and it was pretty cold but the sun was out and I was riding in early March.

    How good is that?

    OK, I may upset the BMW Purists but I have made several changes to my bike over the 24 years I have owned it!

    Yes it's not stock paint, the bike came silver blue, then went to black with gold pinstripes, then Dodge Viper Red with gold pinstripes.

    The wheels are Gold Anodized Sun Rims with Buccanan SS Spokes, Hubs Powdercoated Black.

    SS Brake Lines, Master Cylinder moved to Handelbar. Designed my own Barbacks.

    Entire Drivetrain out of a 1984 R100RS, thus newer Airbox. now has 487,000 miles.

    The list goes on....

    And at 487,000 miles so does the bike.

    Wishing you many, many more happy miles on a great looking bike.

    You had that bike, pulling a different trailer that was also color matched, at the Lake Placid 1983 National, did you not? And a friend with you had a silver/grey RS, also pulling a trailer, Lesters and red-striped valve covers? Along with a sign saying "these are not San Jose BMWs" placed in front of them?
    Was that you?
    Those bikes were beautiful.

    My 77 RS rims were all banged up and I always liked gold anodizing , so one thing led to another...

    That never happened again since I started using BMW Branded oil filters.

    They cost more money but as a friend said " How much is your engine worth?"

    R90/6 35 years of Ownership

    I purchased it new in 1976 in Stuttgart. Not many miles (38k Kilometers), but decided to take it down and restore it. As these are not considered collector bikes, I deviated a bit from original, hence the leather seat, copper plating of a few parts, etc. A fun project taking it down to the frame and refreshing everything. Left the crankshaft and pistons alone, simply replaced all seals and clutch, etc.

    Runs like new. Can't convey how good a new foam seat feels...didn't realize how much the old foam had softened.
