Thanks for the heads up.
Congratulations on a job well done!
I enjoyed the way you seemed to know what you needed to do and kept the flow of work and parts going. Thats the way to get a bike finished within a decent period of time and I KNOW you'll love that bike as much as I love mine!
I've never been crazy about black/smoke Beemers but that one looks great!
Still riding it?
Fantastic job, it is a credit to you
Yes, typically once or twice a month for an outing. Almost ready for a new rear tire.
It took first place in the club show last weekend. All voting by dealer staff. I was lucky in that some of the members with other nice bikes were attending Mid Ohio vintage days and not present.
the befor is ok, the after is fantastic !!!!
Very nice work. You have alot of time and effort into this and it looks like it is now paying off for you.
Damnit! I tried finding this thread for an hour or two a few weeks ago.
Glad to see it resurface. Beautiful bike.
saw this today.
For perfekt look go to you local Dealer, there you'll get a brand new front weel.
There's a recall from BMW for this wheels, your airhead is delivered with.
Some of these wheels had broken and BMW will change it, even they are about 30 years old.

Recall campaign 84V-092
Wow, back from the depths. Thanks for the props guys.
I have a new set of tires to go on it for this upcoming riding season. Gonna try the B'stones this time.
I did go to the dealer a couple of months ago to get the wheel recall started. I gave them the frame numbers and he said there was no open recall on the bike.:huh
I have printed out the info and verified the wheel casting is "81" vintage, so I know the wheel is a recall item, and I'm going to make a call to corporate to see what's up.
Ya gonna ride that to the fling?
He sure better..........
That homebrew must really be good, he doesn't remember seeing it at the previous rallys in Tellico.
:slurp ............ Poor Matt.
Here you can see all recalls to your BMW bikes
Finally got my recalled wheel a couple of weeks ago. Dealer was nice enough to let me take it to get powder coated before installation.
Another nice thing is the wheel came with new bearings and seals.
Now just need to schedule an appointment for installation.
Gogswell, congratulations on your fabulous restoration! It is stunning. I am sure it took lots of patience and perseverance to take care of all the details.
I really like how the original look was retained, no extra polishing of parts or extra chrome. There is a fine art to knowing when "enough is enough" and not over-restoring a bike. The older style valve covers are a nice nod to the past, they are most pleasing!
I was reading every post to see if anyone had noticed you had the original wheel. You should have left it. The recall was a joke.
Thanks, I just wanted a nice clean rider. I got it cleaned back up a couple of days ago from the spring rally ride and the final drive repair. I will take it out again in a few days to put some miles on it and check for leaks.
Yeah, I think it was mentioned a time or two. I've had some comments about it being a recall wheel when on rides too.
I figured I would go ahead and have it replaced since I ride the bike somewhat frequently.
