For Sale: 1975 R90S

Scottie's Workshop purchased this R90S at 22k miles from the original owner's son-in-law with all records and a lovely set of Krauser luggage with keys, all the factory keys, all the original manuals, original tool kit, and service records since zero miles. It was sent over to San Jose BMW in the early 80's to receive:

  • Dual plugs and Dyna ignition
  • San Jose upper and lower fork braces
  • Stainless steel brake lines
  • Lester wheels
  • Corbin seat

Scottie's Workshop stripped the bodywork off the bike and serviced the electrical system, replacing any weathered connectors and installing a new Oydessey heavy duty cranking gel battery. Also, the following work was performed:

  • Service II by Scottie's Workshop (The wheel and chassis bearings were serviced. Brakes were adjusted and bled. New fluids throughout the entire bike. New plugs, valve adjustment, carb adjustment and balance, and dynamic timing adjustment.)
  • Body work was treated to new Glasurit Daytona paint and stripes in our paint shop. 
  • New Gustaffsen screen 
  • Rebuilt gauges by Palo Alto Speedometer and a new reproduction unit gauge cluster housing and glass lenses and rubber hoods. All new cluster bulbs. 
  • Extensive list of rubber items and cables was replaced.
  • New complete Keihan stainless steel exhaust system

In the year or so that I've had the bike, I've personally put about 2,500 trouble free (and thrilling!) miles on this bike. It owns the road, gets thumbs up everywhere, goes where ever you point it, and sounds thrilling. Bridgestone tires are in good condition with about 2,500 miles on them.

If you are looking for a show quality, low miles R90S that needs nothing, look no further.  Scottie's Workshop will fully detail this bike to concours condition prior to sale, install brand new tires (buyer's choice), and will ship worldwide.

Asking $14,950 or best offer.
