I have a 1983 RZ350, a 1986 RZ350, and a 1972 BSA Lightning
kicking around the garage. Someday I'll figure out how to post pics.
The RZ's are getting new paint this winter, the red is starting to fade.

My newly restored 1974 R90S came til life for the first time since 1986 when it was parked in a leaky shed. During the restoration I pulled down every bit of the bike, doing all the work myself including the painting of the Silver Smoke.
This picture was taken on the virgin trip to Croatia this summer when I did 6000 kilometres in 4 weeks.
The whole project can be seen at my site.

Couldn't resist. Have to see at least 2 cylinders when riding. Got it in pieces, restored for 2 years. God bless BMW's sparepart prices.

How about an oddball ? My current ride, 1980 CX500C. Had to replace the water pump seal, rear suspension, new gas tank is in the works, replaced all the cables and hoses. Removed the surface rust off the coolant pipe, painted the exhaust collector box... Runs like a champ ; little loud though, so Im looking for a set of stock exhaust pipes or something close to, any offers



Oh, I recently got my hands on a '72 CB500 four. Needs some work, pic to follow


And how about a nimbus ?



You guys made me drool troughout the entire thread. Keep it up.

Not at the moment. PO stuck shortpipes on the bike so I will be looking for stock exhaust or something very close to it. Some other things that need to be changed/fixed, at a glance : hoses, cables, rear suspension, carbs rebuilt, plenty of surface rust to take off...and, there's something wrong with the odometer...it only has around 8k on it

Well, what's an old school ride without some mechanical oddities. It's just fun to piece it together again and that's probably the reason, why we love them so much: there's much more acquaintance involved.
Just make sure you find one of these stock exhaust pipes, they look real nice and unique.

You summed it up right there my friend. It gets personal, which makes it more than just an old machine. Btw, here's a few pics.

Gas tank, carbs and plastics off..




This must be an error

Thanks for the nice pics. There's some work waiting for you. But it will be worth the effort. I still have vivid memories of that nice green 500Four my friend was riding in 1971. Sweeeeet sounding engine!

Just to show you a pic of the condition my CBX was in when I got it:

I know that pipes are no longer available on the 750 and the CBX 1000, head gaskets are aftermarket. Prices in general are astronomical, O-rings for 6$, small plastic T-pieces for the fuel line: 25$ etc. etc., horrible. There's a lot of dealing and wheeling going on in ebay and in the clubs but you get that stuff. It's worthwhile.

I've got a CB750F, circa 82 in pieces right now. I have the stock pipes, which are still in pretty good condition. A guy told me the pipes were worth more than the rest of the bike.

Guess I should put it together......
