1976 BMW R90S - MAY 2017 WINDOW BIKE
May’s window bike was a Daytona Orange 1976 BMW R90S, the high compression, faired, sportier version of BMW’s standard R90/6. The R90S was designed to break free from BMW’s reputation for building reliable, but unexciting bikes. To demonstrate this, BMW raced the R90S extensively to much success, including a first and second place finish at the AMA Superbike race at Daytona International Speedway in 1976.
The owner owner bought this bike along with a second R90S from a german farmer in eastern Ontario several years ago and other than an upgraded ignition system and mirrors, the bike has been kept nearly entirely stock. It is regularly ridden and is often seen parked out front of the shop.
