For sale: 1989 BMW R100GS Bumblebee. This bike has had quite a life! I'm the second owner. The first owner purchased this Euro-spec GS new in Zimbabwe in 1989. After riding around Africa a bit he shipped it back to his native Ireland. There it was stored outside and picked up some surface rust on the frame and subframe. He then moved to Montana and that's where I've picked it up. I've done some minor and practical upgrades:
- New main seal- New fork seals- Carb and tank cleaning- New Dyna Coils- Stainless steel crash bars- Stainless side stand- Engine/oil pan bash plate- Oil cooler relocation kit / new oil cooler- Oil pan expansion (distance ring)- 'peanut' valve covers with oil filler I have all the original parts in case you don't like the upgrades. I also have the original hard cases, as well as a new set of Wolfman luggage. I'm not the BMW guy who has three different toothbrushes to clean the cylinder fins, but I am a stickler for maintenance and have changed the oil and filter every 3000 miles and every Spring.
The best part is the mileage: 25,000 km or around 15,400 miles! This could either be restored to a show piece or ridden around the world. I'm still riding it this summer (hence the bugs in the photos) so the mileage may tick up a bit.
