PLEASE NOTE: There is no title with this bike despite what the specifics say (e-bay makes you fill in the space). I can provide a receipt upon request. Make sure to read the entire description including the end.
ID of this rare BMW came from Tom Cutter who was employed by BMW US Importer Butler & Smith as their head technician and a Team BMW member. By phone conversation Tom told me he helped open the cargo container on a snowy Oct day 1979 which held the silver blue striped Exclusive Sport models. He stated the container had only 30 of these imported to the USA. He said very rare bike and asked if I was riding it. I said yes I did ride it he stated he wouldn't be! Main reason so few BMW were imported is in 1980 is it was the transition year between Butler and Smith and then BMWNA, imports were so low that was actually their lowest sales year in modern times. The multi blue stripe pattern Tom believed is likely copied from the Butler & Smith BMW 1978 Superbike racers. By a German info contact in 1979 the limited edition silver and triple tone blue R100S Exclusive Exklusiv Sport was designed by Walter Maurer from Dachau near Munich. The model also included chrome shock bodies black springs, polished aluminum fork sliders, carb covers & rear drive housing. This R100S is NOT a Lufthansa Airlines or Airliner pattern or color design as Internet rumors have evolved, these claims are false! It took 11 months of research to establish this information. When I purchased this R100S 7/13 it had 7800 miles now 8665 mi.,. Seat is in great condition soft and comfortable, all paint scratches are visible in images. Hand control info text/decals are in nice condition with all gauges including clock functioning. When new it had dealer installed optional high capacity deep oil pan as list on receipt. Original windscreen. Only con is the transmission has a false neutral only when down shifting from 4th to 3rd gears. I have the original take-off Continental tires included with bike. Collector could remount them and display as original stock. Has new Deka battery and 800 miles on a set of Shinko tires. This R100S came from original owner. Comes with ABT of Chicago sales receipt, water resistant tool container with cover, tools & pouch, owners manual, air pump, tire/tyre repair kit, front wheel locking cable, BMW shop rag and BMW service pamphlet. Last few images are of original tires mounted from last July 2012. The rusty R100S Exclusive Sport is the only image I have found of one in the USA. There are some fakes with painted on strips one I know from Canada. Checkout my feedback it show 100% for over 1,000 auctions. Please free to contact me about this collector quality R100S Exclusive Sport. HEAVYBARREL at CHARTER dot NET
