My uncle texts me and asks me to stop by on my way home from work. I show up and he has an old leather jacket that he hard to ride with that he says he'll never fit into again. Fits absolutely mint. Then he gives me an envelope. Inside is this.

That is awesome Christian. I look forward to pictures of it finished and on the road.

So picked it up from the farm with my uncle's help and drove it a mile down the road to my place. Sitting safely in the garage now.

And he had the helmet with it!

Interesting story behind it. This was supposed to be the end of the R series bikes when the K series bikes were introduced so they made this last edition in order to commemorate the end of production. When the sales numbers of the K bikes failed to meet the R numbers they reintroduced them into production. The helmet is a Schuberth that was given to all the purchasers of these Last Edition bikes in order to appease them for the failure of their "collectible".

Hopefully will start tearing into it next week!

The helmet completed the bike.

The bike supposed to be the beautiful pearl white not just purl white.

The story is particularly correct.... BMW used the left over parts produced those so called last editions RT and RS with nothing different then others beside paint colors and stickers. People bought them like your uncle expected those bike to be “collectible “ in the future back in 1984.

In 1985 (as 1986 model), BMW brought up the mono- lever R serious. Those who bought “the last edition” got pissed off worldwise. So... BMW have all those last edition owners a helmet as “make up gift”.
