    Default Closet Bikey

    Downunderyank,
    Is this you bidding on this Bavarian beauty!
    I 've been salivating over her for a few days, but SWMBO says she refuses to visit me in hospital, where I invariably end up after riding anything with less than 3 wheels.

    Good luck, hope you win it.

    He replaced the rings on a boxer at 125,000 kms????

    BMW R series have nicosil bores and it's pretty hard to wear them out. Try 400,000 kays before you would bother even thinking about replacing them.

    Why premium unleaded in a 1970's boxer??

    Oh and beware, these old boxers had a serious lack of power!

    Default lack of power?

    Oh come on now,, my '81 R100Rs is quicker than the later rebuilds in "87 and can keep up with my K! and/or my K100RS. Ok the older R60/5 is a bit slower but the notorious R90S was beautiful..

    Ride like the wind..........................
