BMW R100 RS / Cycle World

In the early 1980's I owned this nice BMW R100 I bought from a friend. I loved the basic black color of this motorcycle, it was, to me, one of the best classic looking motorcycles along with the Norton Commando I had owned. Of course, I always dreamed of owning the BMW RS100 model in the following story but I was spending most of my time with my dirt bikes so the dream never became a reality. Great story about the RS100 from Cycle World follows.


Reviving a rotary engine motorcycle - from BIKEEXIF

A beautiful update of a motorcycle ahead of it's time, The Hercules Wankel.


I am a fan of all things Hercules/Sachs with my main priority being the Hercules brand since I owned and raced one in the late 70's, my first true competition dirt bike. I thought the Hercules Wankel was the best looking Wankel engine of the time, although the Suzuki R5 was probably the more interesting complete package. This is definitely a spectacular revision but I hope they preserved all of the donors parts should they ever want to return the bike to stock condition. Read more here in BikeExif.
