BMW R100GS. 1990. Dublin, Ireland

year : 1990
Guide Price : €URO 2650
Mileage : approx: 56k miles
Colour : Very Red
Extras : classic Krauser panniers and QD topbox, small GPS (as speedo), tall ‘Ermax’ screen, gel battery, rubber footpeg inserts
Overall Bike Condition : good
Service History/Receipts/Recent Service work : service it myself – lots of paperwork from Germany
German import 6 years ago – on Irish plate, I’m first Irish owner.
Any Other Relevant Info : newly rebuilt gearbox, new (s/h) drive shaft.
Overall condition is pretty good / not perfect (I’m fussy!). Excellent engine/gearbox and clutch.

Now the bad bits;
• speedo fubared – hence the GPS / still counts up the kilometres though.
• Only one heated grip working.
• needs rear tyre.
• will soon need headrace bearings.

Would prefer a swop with cash my way for a lighter Bike, fit to carry a pillion and luggage.
Health issues force reluctant sale.

happy to deliver anywhere (any excuse for a long ride!) for costs.

Who the hell am i?
Apologies for this being my first post - i always have... 'doubts' when i see someone using a board just to sell - but i dare not get too much into this board - or i'll get no work done all day!
I'm active/well known on UKGSer.com and Irishbikerforum - and i spend too much time on them as it is .
Just that i now have to sell the Airhead - i have to think in capitalist terms. So apologies for my bad manners.
feel free to make offers / take the mickey / and give abuse

pictures here;

Thanks for reading this far

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
