Do you know it's possible to put wire wheels on that bike - even with the brembos?

'72 Yamaha 60
This is the first "real bike" I learned to ride on. With clutch/ manual shift vs mini bike auto clutch...spoke wheels etc.
That's me on the bike and my cousin behind it with our sisters posing with us....ATGATT 70's style.....would any of you parents let your kids ride around like that today?
another with my cousin at the controls and some back yard adventure camping.
I found this same bike....a Yamaha 60 in a museum in Madison,GA.
It even had the company propaganda to go with it.

Hey I'm new here.........
So I thought I should show you my "new" bike.
I bought this old girl for next to nothing from a bike jumble here in the UK last weekend, it is my first beemer, and at the moment needs a little fixing, but hey that's half the fun.
Here she is as bought....
and here she is after a weekends work....
I hope the pictures show, if not you can see my bikes here....
and other old bikes and stuff here....

Thats a bit of a rare version isn't it? At least it is over here in the Netherlands. Way cool, I only saw one once, riding opposite direction on the motorway.
Please get rid of those awefull Metzelers and get some nice BT
45's that'll turn riding into a whole new ballgame, it most certainlly did for my r90s. Hey, you spent so little on the bike, it's worth it.
You'll need 90/100-18 front and 120/90-18 rear. But, actualy, nothing is as personal as your choice of tyres, where I really think the Metzelers are outdated others will be very happy with them.
Have fun with it,
EDIT: just saw this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.de/Logo-fuer-BMW-R65...QQcmdZViewItem

Thought I'd add my current/old passion. I've always had an ache for old British cars and bikes, you know, the ones designed by individuals instead of by committees. Used to ride this one daily over 20 years ago. Back then I one day diassembled it, put it away inside an old van, and almost forgot about it. Last winter I got it out again and spent many hours restoring it to original.
Currently I'm building a 1967 T100C old school scrambler. Cheriani forks, etc, etc. An R65GS might also be done if I can find a used R80ST frame.
