    There is one on TM at the moment,http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=593264921

    Spending money on it depends on if you want to keep it or not and what state its in. Pictures would be nice.

    Don't see many of the Daytona Orange ones.

    cheers John

    They were the bees knees of Beemers back in the '70s. Me thinks will increase in value.

    That seems quite a high price .. not sure I would pay it .. it may well be a good price for a collector bke .. but too much for a ridign bike ..

    Downs- irl ... If it's Orange then HDC might just have to stand in line ... I loved them when they first came out (but then, I'm not convinced I wnt another BMW ...)

    Like it or not they are all collectors bikes now. Recent articles in Classic Bike and a few others have simply added fuel to the fire and prices are on the up. Good original is what the market wants followed by correct restoration and its becoming an international market if you are prepared to ship overseas. Not many people buying them to ride these days.

    Not that many come up for sale.

    I love old BMW's but that at $9850 isn't even within 15% of reserve. Therefore reserve will be $11589 or more. I would think around $12500 should buy it but you never can tell.

    Isn't an R90S just a tarted up R90/6 using a few bits BMW had lying around so they could clear out the parts bins?

    Even BP would shy away from cleaning up a sidecar oil spill.
