A seller in New Hampshire has two examples of BMW’s “Last Edition” bikes from 1984. It was a model name that did not age well! Back in 1984, BMW sold a limited run of bikes which were supposed to signify the end of the 1,000cc boxer engine bikes in the US – this is back when BMW though the K-bike/Flying Brick was the future.
As you might expect, this limited run of boxers commanded a premium, and enthusiasts were eager to snap up their slice of exclusivity. Only problem is, BMW riders in the states were so fervent about the big R-engine that the German firm decided to bring the bike back two years later – but this time as a Monolever. As you can imagine, enthusiasts who paid extra for the Last Edition were a bit annoyed that their definition of the word “Last” was a bit different than BMW’s. BMW tried to make things up with a free helmet, but…you can guess how that went.
The seller’s RS has 13,000 miles and it comes with both the dual and solo seats, tool kit, tire pump, and special Last Edition certificate. The CS comes with the same extras but the seller stresses that it is in “MINT” condition despite the 19,000 miles. In addition, the CS’ certificate comes in a frame with additional labels for the side covers.
