    I wish I had one, my 1950 BMW R-25 is a baby amongst geritrics, albeit vivacious geriatrics, top home top home

    Brilliant post :thumb

    Thanks for putting up the pics.

    Although usually an ATGATT rider, I would just HAVE to do the nostalgia riding gear to go with the bike if I owned one too.

    By Jovis pater, this is a bully thread! My deepest thanks to Warren for alerting me to this... beautiful motorbikes spic and span from stinger to headlamp, dashing over hill and dale... with spanners at the ready to keep the old girls moving when they balk. Tally ho!!

    A lovely thread! Thanks for posting. :clap

    Now, where would I find a wicker basket for my 950 Adventure, just to give it that touch of classic style?

    It is funny that when I look at the "over restored" motors I get the same moto-lust:drif I experience when I go to a dealer now. :ricky

    A country for old me. And their machines. And what machines. I had seen the title for so long, but never looked til now. Nice machines.
    Fully restored, totally restored, restored to new condition, showroom condition does not bother me. It takes me back to that day long ago when the machine was in the showroom, and someone, myself, my grandfather could walk in and buy it.
    But I don't think they should all be restored. One out of ten is enough. If the other 9 are running condition. And all or mostly original.
