I had the chance to buy a Franken-Beemer over the winter for a pretty good price. This is my first motorcycle rebuild. The bike is a 1972 BMW R60/5 with a 1970 R75/5 engine. Frame is straight but every pc of chrome and steel is rusted. The bike had been sitting in a garage since 1994 with a full fuel tank. Amazingly having a full tank of old non-ethanol era fuel kept the tank and internals in good condition. With the exception of oxidation the engine is in pretty clean on the inside. As for everything else im going to need new rear shocks, wheel bearings, brakes, tires, seat, and anything plastic or rubber on the bike... it's going to be a fun project. After rebuilding the carbs twice (i missed the fact the first time around that the bowls did not match the 1970 Bing CV carbs) the bike starts up and runs. The idle is fast but I believe I can slow that down once i adjust the cables. Right now I'm looking for someone who can rebuild a speedo and tach. I also have shorts in both handlebar switches as well as the front brake lever.
