Whoa, that's not quite stock. More pics and/or a build tread on it somewhere?

Ah - good. You're older. I shall call you "Chris the Elder" henceforth.

And for the luddites out there, the Roman numeral for 50 is L.

Now, now, Bill. The fact that Chris' bike is "modified" should not come as a shock to you.

Hey Bill. The bike in question is a 1991 R10 Classic that BMW made 163 of for the US market.
I bought the bike in rough shape and did not feel the need to restore it.





I put an 81-84 center stand on it so I could run the earlier style exhaust, sold mount S fairing, 3/4 seat and Hepco Becker aluminum saddlebags and the tail light was a prototype with the turn signals built into it.

Here is the bike today.

The wifey machining some coil brackets.



Lately we installed an LS200 on a R50S



Small hands needed.

This is our second year of sponsoring two high school kids that are in the engineering ROP(Regional Occupational Program) program. Twice a week they get to come to the shop and learn how to make things by hand. Today they got to spend the afternoon with the plasma cutter. It was a first for both of them.

I would love to have some more info/pictures on the R80 or 100 with the dualsport tires on it. I have a nice 83 R80rt that lost its fairing at some point in its life that I want to turn into a backroad/gravel road bike. I also have a clean low milage 79 R100rt complete that I will start going thru after the first of the year.

The bike is an 1983 R100 that was built for fire roads in Montana and to look pretty doing so.
