*SOLD* FS: 1988 BMW R100GS, Flagstaff, AZ; USA

1988 BMW R100GS

Located in Flagstaff, Arizona
$6,300.00


I have a sickness....I can’t decide on just one bike....


I purchased this GS in October and it has reliably taken me from Arizona to Copper Canyon Mexico and up to 13,000 feet in Colorado. After the Mexico trip I found that I had a couple of burned valves, so I began a rebuild project with the goal to build a GS that negates the common pitfalls of the airheads, namely the charging system and rear paralever driveshaft, and provide a adventure touring bike with the utmost in reliability and ease of maintenance. Here’s what she’s got:


66,660 chassis miles as of today.


Professionally rebuilt engine and transmission at 64,600 miles using all OEM BMW parts.


It’s just easier to tell you what isn’t new....I reused the block and the crank (of course, the cylinders and pistons are new, and have been balanced)....transmission (with factory kick-start) has been reconditioned, with new bearings, and has been shimmed to spec. (We did not add the circlip.)

As I’m entirely too anal to put an old clutch in between a new engine and transmission, a new clutch was installed. No leaks....period, none, zip.


The heads were rebuilt by MotoGhost (Omar) in Phoenix, Arizona USA using all new valves, guides, springs etc.


Omega Charging System
Custom solid/zerk fitted driveshaft (no more twisted rubber driveshafts!)
New drive boots and rear pinion seal.
TKC80s with plenty of tread left
Oil Cooler Relocation kit
Headlight cut off switch
Hella 550 Driving Lights (55W)
Auxiliary Power port
Wired for an electric vest.
Heated Aerostich Grip Wraps (included)
Newly recovered solo seat and rack
Factory two up seat.
Happy Trails Aluminum Panniers and Mounting system
Touratech Oil can (2Qt.) Carrier
Touratech Dual Fuel Bottle Carriers
Touratech Center Stand Skid Plate
Hand Guards
Bar Backs
New National Cycle Deflector Screen Windshield in Smoke tint.


The 500 mile service (oil/filter/valve adjust) has been completed, along with new fork seals/oil. The stock handguards, as well as various spares (used clutch disk etc.) are included.



Why am I selling? Well, I recently purchased my "dream bike", a GS Adventure....so, as I can only fit one bike in the garage, my project must make room.


I’m not parting it out. I have all the records of the parts replaced and services performed. PM me with other questions, or if you’re interested.
