1991 R100 - how much ???
 
Hello,
I own a 1991 R100 (not R100R, or RT) with about 19,000 miles on it. Once upon a time, a dealer told me it was a 'rare' model. I haven't ridden the bike in 5 years but it ran fine back then. I just posted it on Craig's List to sell it, and much to my surprise, I've had about 8 people express interest in the first few hours. The price I asked was $3000. I paid $4000 for it 11 years ago.

So my question is...am I missing something? Could this indeed be some rare model and is worth more than I asked, even in its neglected state?

Any places I can look to do more research?

thanks

Joe

Does your bike have the "bikini" fairing? Those are pretty collectable.

NADA says the bike is worth $2400 in excellent condition. I think what you're experiencing is a strong interest in older bikes, especially with brands like BMW, Moto Guzzi, Ducati, etc.

Do you have a rare, "one of a kind" model that's worth substantially more than $3-4k? It might be. You can check Walneck's listing for comparable bikes, visit a site like www.vintagebmw.org, or hit some classic bike shows.

Or, you can go to the dealer who told you it's a rare model, and see how much he'll offer!
