My 1990 16v RS suffered a drive failure a couple of years and has since languished unloved.
Before the breakdown the engine was running great, the bike is complete apart from the exhaust and gearlever.
I don't have the time to sort it out and it could be of use to someone. So if you want it and have a trailer it's yours. The bike is in Waterford.
phone..... zero eight seven two eight zero five nine five six

Any other spare parts I have will be thrown in.

Wow - what a generous offer.
Sorry to hear that you're parting company with the bike, but no point her sitting unloved in a dark damp corner.

I hope that one of the Irish Eccentrics take you up on your offer...if not, I have a trailer and am only a few hours and a £350 ferry ride away and would seriously consider a day trip to collect (might put my other project on hold though!)

It is now safely parked in my shed :-)

This will keep me occupied over the winter months.

Thanks Stephen

Glad to hear youse made it back in one piece.
It was a bit of mixed emotion as youse left, sorry to see the bike go but good to see an old friend again.
The end of approximately 12 years of K bike ownership but at least I still have my old R100GS so still part of the old school BMW family.
Look forward to seeing the bike alive again..

Still running so may well bring it to Stradbally this weekend for the August meet up.

Maybe you can come along and catch up with an old friend ?
