BMW R90S 898cc 1976. An original UK example with matching engine and frame numbers. 

This 1976 example is one of the later models to be built and benefits from numerous improvements, but more importantly was subject to detailed and thorough restoration in 2014 by BAMW, who essentially renovated and rebuilt the bike from the ground up. Using as many of the original parts as possible, new OE replacements were also used when necessary, with several useful upgrades and modern restoration techniques deployed. It comes with its user manual, and full tool kit and is fully road legal for UK roads.
