This 1978 BMW R100/7 underwent a refurbishment and modification in the style of an R100S prior to its acquisition by the seller in spring 2021. The bike is equipped with a quarter fairing and a solo seat from an R100S and has been refinished in Alpine White with Motorsport graphics. Power is from a numbers-matching 979cc opposed twin paired with a five-speed transmission. The engine is said to have been fitted with dual-plugged cylinder heads and 9.5:1 pistons from a 1979 R100RT, and other modifications reportedly include 40mm Bing carburetors, dual front disc brakes, an electronic ignition system, a stainless-steel exhaust, Gazi shocks, and an LED headlight The fuel tank is said to have been stripped and resealed prior to being repainted in Alpine White, along with the rest of the bodywork. Stripes and graphics in the BMW Motorsport colors of blue and red have been added.

The seller notes a crack in the windscreen along with nicks and corrosion on the frame. Rims measuring 19? front and 18? rear are laced to hubs with replacement wheel bearings. The front tire is a Michelin Pilot Road 4 and a Michelin Pilot Activ is mounted out back. Braking is from dual ABM semi-floating discs with EBC sintered pads and stainless steel hoses up front and a drum that has been trued and fitted with Ferodo shoes in the rear. Suspension is handled by a leading axle hydraulic fork fitted with HyperPro springs as well as a swingarm connected to Gazi Sport X shocks with black coils.
