BMW R90s Left Side Hack "Lefty"

Hi all,

First time short time with being on the board and soon to be on a side car let alone a left side rig. With not going into to much detail I acquired the rig from bmweuro other wise know as Boxer Metal.

last week I came to bmweuro with a cunning plan. The plan is for me to acquire the left side rig, rebuild it, and ride it 400 miles to the 2013 BMW MOA rally.

So far the the cunning plan is playing out without any hiccups. My plans for the rig is to bring it back to life and make it look like the bad ass that it use to be.

The day i got it and after i cleaned it up a bit.








messing around with a tank and seat pan.



pulled the final drive to re seal it and also wanted to inspect the welds on the swing arm.


rear wheel is attached by a custom adapter.



there will be more pictures to come...

As mentioned before picture overload. Yes, Chris has been a good friend and mentor.

Resealed the motor and found some interesting stuff that has been done to it. I.E.. lightened and balanced connecting rods and lightened wrist pins. I'm pretty sure the crank has been worked as well.

lightened and balanced connecting rod. i did not get a picture of the pins.


the bore and hone marks look good.


motor is 100% resealed and swapped out the stock fly wheel for an 8 tooth starter for a lightened fly wheel for a 9 tooth starter.


the carbs were rebuild as well.
