I agree about the dimension...the bosch has the single screw in the bottom...I'll make it work!

What a couple of piles of crap! You dragged that garbage home?

(he wanted to know why I hadn't given him crap about the purchase )



The Gold Wing is the cooler of the two bikes. You should put that thing back together as original as possible. I might have even been tempted to buy that one.

What do I have to show for my summer internship? Two more rusty BMW's, a nice shotgun, some bills paid, 8319 miles in California on my R75, and a ton of pictures/memories. No regrets so far.

The Hodaka switch fits EXACTLY like the original.

strangely the ape-hanger handle bars dont seem to be "american" - this phot was taken this spring in Göreme, Kappadokkia, Turkey; the right BMW is resting on the side car frame of the left one

This is a NOS Asian "knock off" Hella assembly mounted on my sidecar fender. It is supposed to be replica of an early BMW tail light. Supports a dual element bulb, 6 or 12 volt. The (supposedly) rubber gasket (between base and fender) broke apart when slightly flexed. Don't know what it was made of but it certainly wasn't any rubber from this planet.

I found it on EBay for $25.00 - $30.00 if I remember right.

Before Paint



After Paint



I originally mounted a /5 tail light but my home made bracket failed from vibration in Yellowstone Park....nothing some ingenuity and zip ties couldn't fix.

I did, but not in Missouri. For paperwork I had an old Alagoddamnedbama registration form (from before they HAD motorcycle titles) and some old hand written bill's of sale made out to various folks through whose hands the mess had passed, but not everyone. In the end, I sent it all to a friend in Tennessee along with a note thanking him for storing it for me and saying that he could have it for one dollar. He took all that crap to the courthouse and registered it in his name. When the title came, he signed it over and mailed it to me. The bike had never left my garage. I got the VIN officially verified per state law and took that paper and the Tennessee title to the courthouse in the state where I live and the asshats there were happy.

I've also gotten a title on a "Surety Bond" in two states. That is harder. It is also LOTS cheaper if you do it BEFORE the restoration.

I have contacted a fellow motorcycle rider in Tennessee who said he's willing to assist.

But, before I do that, a n00b here PM'ed me with a trickly little route to go in MO. I just don't know if I want to go to the "dmv" and do it one at a time, or all 3 at once. Yes, 3. My two /2's and a VW van.

The thing about the van is, some most-likely-stoner (friend of a friend) has the title somewhere, but is too damn lazy to find the title.. even after I offered to pay him. Loser.

I learned the "don't buy without a title" lesson the hard way.

You're learning it the REALLY hard way. 3 vehicles!!!

good luck on the Tennessee route. I've had success there before.

Now go get busy on the teardown and pics.

2 weeks and I'll be on Thanksgiving break.

First, I need to put my transmission back in my truck, button up my R75 ("winter maintenance"), move the Model A around, and clear some room.

Then, I'll pick my bikes up, get their VIN's verified by the sheriff (and maybe the local airhead shop), and drop them off at my shop. If I have any time left over that break, I'll dig in. If not, winter break is only a little more than 5 weeks away.



I had a dream last night that all I had to do was spray a little starting fluid in 'em and off I went!

No problemo. The bikes might be traveling up to my shop in St. Peters soon, though.

But, I have bonfires at my house all the time. Next semester, when my roommates gone, I'm thinking of throwing an old's cool get-together.. might also be an unofficial graduation party. I haven't thought about it that much.

A guy I know broke my needle-nose pliers, and I bugged him for 2 years about giving me a replacement pair. He was moving to Florida last I saw him, his house empty and this sitting in his driveway. He said "Would this be a decent payment?"

Nice! Pull the motor soon and make sure the right oil cooler is in the right spot. Looks like a bypass filter plumbed into the cooler area. Often that same install included a cooler placed across the fan inlet, restricting and preheating the airflow to cool the motor.

This place can be very helpful, if you don't know it already:
