I do dumb things sometimes, or new to me RT and parts

I was looking for parts for my R75/6. A guy who lives a few hours away contacted me and said he had parts. I went to see what he had and ended up buying a truckload of parts and a 1982 R100RT with 35,000 miles in excellent condition. The RT has not run in a few years, but it had the fluids changed, valves set, carbs set and new tires before it was parked. The bags came with it. I just happened to have the bike carrier in the back of my truck.





The parts are mostly for '70s R-bikes, but there are a few for early K bikes as well. Some are new but most are used. There is even BMW diagnostic equipment that looks new. Since it never happened without pictures, here you go. Sorry for the iphone photos - not sure where the better camera is.















I do not know what came over me. It seemed like a really good idea at the time. Now I look at all of this stuff and wonder what I am going to do with it. I don't even know what some of this stuff is.

It ranges from used wheels to brand new packaged disk brakes for a K100 or K75. Lots of used centre stands, new valves, used RS fairing parts and one S-type fairing (not sure if BMW part), to many brand new pedals. Three left bags (or are they right?), new manuals for /7s, etc. it goes on and on.

My wife just shook her head when i told her. She thinks I have gone crazy - she may be right.

The irony is that i went to look at cylinders and heads for my /6, but I am not sure I want to use the ones that are here. I think the cylinders are over bore and the heads look a bit funky. The rest of the stuff, however, looks pretty good (except the pipes are pretty rusty).

This is probably not the right forum, but if you see anything that interests you, or are looking for something for an airhead, just let me know.

Or, if you are local and want to see what is here or to help me figure out what these parts are from, feel free to contact me.

cheers,
Phil

WOW!

Folks on this forum can help you identify parts, maybe you should get an ebay account or start a website with used parts. If you were closer, I'd love to dig through your pile!

Haha, what got into you? Nice bike though. Yeah, I'd sell what I can on eBay and then hand IR off to a local breaker/wrecker.

If you don't want to deal with ebay, try the IBMWR Marketplace, instead. Think of it this way, each and every one of those parts may be the one thing someone needs to finish their project, and you'll be amazed how much money you make! The link: http://marketplace.ibmwr.org/

more photos

Thanks to all of you who have responded to this post. I have been asked to post better photos of what is here. Attached are more photos. I haven't had time to sort through this stuff, so let me know if you see something that jumps out that you want/need. I hope this isn't against the forum rules.

The seat on the left is in not too bad shape, but it has a couple of small cuts on the bottom.



RS plastic with a small S type fairing.


Assorted front fenders.




I might need a cylinder and two heads.


BMW diagnostic equipment.


















The shiney rim is for a R90S (among others) and is almost new. The other rims have issues except for the aluminum, which appears to just need cleaning.




There are lots of assorted new rubber gaskets and o rings in packages and small parts amongst the other stuff.










Just how many foot pegs does a guy need?????


I think this is all K-bike parts.


assorted cables. Hmmm, I need to see if they fit one of my bikes.


Assorted foot and hand levers. Some of the brake pedals are right side.


rocker covers. The two nicer ones are for a R69S.


Let me know if there is something in there that piques your curiosity and I will dig it out.

cheers,
Phil

Sweet score! I would have done the same.

Shame I don't really need anything but small odds and ends. It'd probably cost too much for a pair of turn signals lenses from Ontario.

Good luck with everything.
