  1. Hi Greg.

    I have one of these – I bought her in 1980 – unrestored and not running. She’s still in that condition.

    Would you let me know about yours and the effort and cost of restoring the bike ?

    I have a factory parts manual and I know mine has some non-original bits – like the BSA muffler (silencer)and home-made replacement seat. Electrics look like they came from a cave. Engine can be turned over by hand.

    Mine is in pretty poor shape and I suspect that it might be easier and far less costly to buy a restored bike than to restore her.

    We love bikes over at my cyber pub Please drop in and have a look around !



    Here you will find almost everything for your old BMW motorcycle, either user or original spare parts, some are replica with e.G. material improvements for the piston.
    The price is rather fair, they also answering questions. Homepage and catalog is available in German and English as well, shipping is worldwide.
