Found On eBay: 1975 BMW R90S

One of the most loved BMW’s of all time, the R90S, with its signature half fairing, is a great classic bike to own and ride today: So great, in fact, that it was the bike we here at Motorcycle Classics featured on the cover of our Premiere Issue in the fall of 2005.

Just over 17,000 R90s’s were produced between 1974 and 1976, and with 67hp and a top speed of 125mph, they’re still plenty powerful and quick to ride as an everyday commuter and weekend tourer today.

This 1975 R90s (VIN No. 4980822) has just over 32,000 miles on it, and has been professionally repainted by BMW of Ft. Worth, Texas. The owner claims that the bike is perfect with no dents, no scratches, new Metzler tires, and a new battery. They also claim that the bike is 100 percent original except the seat has been recovered in the original style, and a VDO volt meter and VDO clock have been added.

The current owner bought the bike six years ago from a BMW enthusiast/rider/collector, and though he loves the bike, he is neither riding nor showing the bike and has decided it’s time for someone else to enjoy it. Sounds like a deal to us!

I will be looking for advise on how to help my son. I love to ride old bikes. My son just bought and old Kawasaki 440, no title, "it runs". I am not sure what should be the end result of this project, bring it back to stock or an inexpensive cafe project. Generally I get inspired by an old project bike, I am not getting much on this one yet I do not want to demotivate him. Thanks Gil
