It's harder to get a link together for photos than it is to restore a K100.

Well, back in Sept I bought a nonrunning '86 K100RS with Luftmeister turbo.
It was in an accident and had been running previously. It had sat for > 5yrs.
The previous owner wanted to restore, but death ensued. It ended up with me, anxious to restore original luster. Good news...it only had 10K miles.

Here some pictures:

https://s598.photobucket.com/albums/tt69/Reopropf/86K100RS%20Turbo%20project/

First... confirmed that it could run.
Second...tear down
third...everything else...all aluminum bead blasted and tumbled; fairings being sanded/repaired currently. Touchup, sanding, painting cleaning.......
fourth...servicing brakes, bearings, forks, fuel system, drive train (spline was beautiful)
fifth...new/used parts pieces ordered....

Much more to do thru winter

Now that I got the thread going, I will update..

Excellent. It will be intersting to see how that turbo works when back on the road.

Photo hint, do a preview before you submit your post.
Give it a few seconds (15 - 30) for the photos to load in the preview.
In your post, all you will see is the internet link

While I agree it's a bit fiddly to get a photo up onto the forum successfully it is relatively easy once you know the idiosyncrasies of doing it. There are other ways to post a link which can be found by doing a search in the Google slot on the "Forum" page. This might help with individual piccies:

Much has been done since last post and pictures. Still much fine tuning to do to really get bike running, braking as a reliable K bike should. The manuals, fiches sure are helpful, BUT none of this would not be accomplished without the help of 2 friends for guidance and support.

Last 4 pictures are new...

Keep up the good work. Looks beautiful. Some say the last 5% of a restoration is the hardest part. Particularly weird problems in the electrical.

Today the turbo project was completed and a 10 mile maiden voyage completed.

I owe alot to the team of talented friends and professional mechanical help that was INSTRUMENTAL in completeion of this winter project.
As you can see, much was done. It is what you can't see that makes this '86 K100RS FLY.

& more... purged of electrical gremlins.

What I can tell you is this: It runs GREAT, the turbo comes on at 5K rpm building to 8psi of boost and is smooth to warp speed. On my initial ride there were no issues and it seems the the time & $ spent having the bike professionally gone over was worth it!
I will look forward to putting more miles on the machine to assure it's worthiness for the long haul.

I will get some on road video in short order and get it linked here..

 it looks frikkin beautiful....i've never even heard of, let alone seen a turbo on one of those bikes and given that and the condition and dearth of mileage on that odometer (i mean, that cannot be right?  that HAS to be a different cluster than it started life with)...i googled k100rs luftmeister turbo, saw the OP build thread and wondered if it could be identified....

i keep looking at it, lusting and thinking that my wife will notice the dent in the bank account and the bike in the barn....

Looking at the pictures the mileage seems believable to me. And Max is a reputable dealer. I doubt they'd fudge on miles.

Luftmeister turbo'd about 100 K100s.

They only did a few K75s though.  I have a Luftmeister 86 K75 Turbo but it has a few miles on it. About 125K.

i don't think for a second that max's would fudge mileage...too much rep at stake....no, if it happened at all it woulda been prior to their having anything to do with it.

does anyone have any idea what something like that would go for?  they don't even have a price listed.....i know i had a 92 with panniers in fantastic shape and fewer than 10k miles on it that i bought and sold for around 4-5k....but i have no idea what that turbo would add to the price....anyone have any guesses / experience?

thanks

If Max had any doubt about the mileage they'd say so.  Somebody probably bought this a collector item and never rode it.  Or it was lost in a warehouse for a long time.

It's worth what somebody would pay for it.  You really can't Blue Book a vehicle that unique.

In the opening post, Reopropf indicated the moto had approximately 10K miles on the clock. In Reply #21, Reopropf indicated that the instrument cluster had been removed and replaced. The replacement odometer must have clocked the 3453 miles stated by MAX's ad, so nobody really knows what the mileage is on this moto—MAX BMW included.

It doesn't matter either. The eventual buyer will have been intoxicated by the moto's sparkle and its potential. Laughing

So worst case it's got 15K on it?  Not even broken in.

My K75 turbo had 118K on it when I found it.  Needed lots of work on the usual stuff but when I opened up the turbo to inspect all was good.

Recall how bad the early speedometres were. They got replaced due to water ingress or vapour build up due to heat, regularly. The yellow Iocal '85 RT I just linked to is showing 13K miles but has a later speedo on it. Lost to history...

Front and rear rotors replaced, final drive replaced, turbo rebuilt.  Rebuilt retrofit rear shock.  Sounds like it's been around the block at least a couple times.

Thanks for filling in that detail, Peter. It's appreciated and now we know there are others out there in such good nick as yours. I hope the newest owner is enjoying the machine.
