Welcome to the
1977 BMW R100RS !
- The RS77 - A
living legend -
You have reached "the Memorial" for
the first year-model of the R100RS (RS77 for short).
When these silver blue originals
first came off the assembly line in 1976, they were introducing new standards to the touring motorcycle.
It was an expensive bike that soon became the
highest wish for many experienced motorcycle enthusiasts.
Founded on the reliable BMW
boxer engine, it introduced the RS-concept, continued by BMW until today. It was also a
perfect mold for the RT-models offering a higher fairing and handlebars for laid back
Many of the RS77's still run strongly in different parts of
the world today, .. soon 50 years after leaving the assembly line. On this web-site you
will find a list of many of the RS77's and their history as told by the owners
will give you an idea why this has been one of the most durable and beloved motorcycles
ever made, and today a collectors' item.
I hope this homepage will act as
a"campfire" for the owners of the RS77-models still in existence, in the purpose
of keeping the "legends" alive and on the roads. ..And for all of you who share
the interest of the BMW motorcycles history.
