BMW R100RS Wheels problems : 1.
I Don’t Know Where Else To Request Help On This Problem. I Have A 1978 r100rs bmw Motorcycle (not Listed In Your Data Base, So I Chose The R100 9999 Entry From The Drop Down Menu.) Vin 6091102 I’m Very Familiar With These Motorcycles, Having Owned 5 bmws. This Bike Was Known To Have A Recalled Front Wheel (mag Wheel Could Fracture). When I Bought This Bike, I Assumed It Had Been Replaced. It Had Not. When I Contacted bmw Corporate In New Jersey They Told Me They Were No Longer Required To Replace The Wheel, As Had Been The Case During The Recall. Is It True That They Were Released From The Recall? A Large Percentage Of These Old bmws Are Still On The Road. They Are Of Increasing Value And Will Continue To Be Ridden. I Can’t Believe bmw Would Be Released From Its Requirement To Make Good On A Defective Part Which Could Cause Serious, Even Fatal, Accidents. Is This True?
