Does HPN get new airheads from BMW or are they reworking used engines?

You'll forgive me if I don't quite follow you. This bike was built in '84. ISTR that airheads were still current back then.

The HPN website shows several different airhead-based rally bikes and "Prices on request." I didn't know if they were only modifying used bikes or getting a supply of new airhead engines and parts.
