What a stunning outfit. Simple yet so beautiful. Looks so 1940s. I would be proud to own that one.

Well, I have to say that's possibly the first post-1969 BMW (or any modern tig, for that matter) that looks GOOD. Funny thing is, there's really no one thing I can put my finger on to say, "AhHAH- that's the recipe". It just really works.

So- what makes this more dual-sporty than a regular street machine?

Does this guy have a website?

It is very pretty. The only thing I would do is change the valve covers out for the older style.

BMW's attempts to modernize the look of the airhead in the 80s were ill-conceived.

Factory 2WDs post-WWII aren't real common. Apart from the BMW R75s made in 1946 and the KS 750s made up to 48, there's nothing until KMZ developed the MW series and later MT series and Ural's export 2WDs. BMW in Bavaria never made a 2WD post-War. Motec made a conversion for BMWs and there are a few private conversions floating around.

Perry's website is http://perrysmotorcycles.com/

Primarily the differences revolve around ruggedness; heavy-duty spokes, frame gusseting, etc. plus somewhat increased ground clearance, lower gearing and engine set-up to optimize low and mid-range power. It is not at all a true dual-sport sidehack, but rather an "Adventure Tourer".

Unfortunately no. The fall of the dollar vs. the euro made 2WD and a Reverse Gear to rich for my wallet. But there are places in Europe that make and sell "kits" that could be retro-fitted to this rig someday.....right after I win the NM Lottery.

I agree, but Perry convinced me to keep the stock ones, he says they are more oil-tight than the prettier old-style ones. Since reliability was my guiding star on this project, I left them stock. I have since found some @ TouraTech that are supposed to combine oil-tightness and style....for a hefty price.
