Folks,

I finished a rebuild of this bike on July 21, 2017. I wrote-up a description of how I assembled the bike starting with the frame and ending with the gas cap. There are pictures and a short video of the completed project a the end of this write-up.

00 BMW 1977 R100RS Assembling The Bike From the Frame Up

I documented the complete project here:

I plan to ride it from Denver,CO to the 40th anniversary rally hosted by Todd Trumbore in Harleysville, PA, September 14-16, 2017.

Here are some pictures of the finished build.
