**EDIT - At any time if you want full resolution images of what's posted here visit http://www.flickr.com/photos/blainehale/sets/72157621917361361/ So I bought the r90 (after looking for that model specifically for cross country) a few weeks ago. Before I rode Vespas and a Honda CB360. I went into it wanting something that mechanically ran perfect but cosmetically was not fantastic. Finally found one at the right price point and bought it the next night. The PO was an older gentleman who had maybe 8-10 BMW's in his garage among Harleys and a Guzzi or two. I can't express how much I love riding this bike. It's such a unique ride with how the drive shaft bucks under you and the sound of the valves right there in the wind. There were a few issues. First was the horrid (to me) Luftmeister fairing, the Reynold's center stand with no side stand. The non stock 7 ich headlight with no stock bezel (finally think I hunted one down). The rest is really just clean, swap or restore really. Only 43k miles on it. Oh and I'd like to eventually get the /6 tank back on it for touring. On with the pics. So the fairings gone and so is that HORRIBLE 2-1 exhaust. I put this one on in the next week. I'm slowly cleaning the engine trying a few chemicals here and there to see what works best. Started like this.. After a little Simple Green and scrubbing got So this is what I will be restoring over the next 8 month's or so. I will update on this thread and there will be tons of pictures. Parts I've ordered the past 2 weeks. -r90S handle bars -various rubber bits (shifter and such) -stock bmw grips -carb rebuild kit -headlight bezel (thanks to a fellow member) -bosh 8 inch light (hopefully from a fellow member) -front brake pads ad rear shoes Next month -new seat cover from sargeant -full bolt kit -front end fork rebuild (seals) -progressive fork springs -speedo/tach rebuild (need to find a company in atlanta) -tires I'd also like to get the stock rounded valve covers and an S fairing. Thoughts and advice completely welcomed.
