Well, after a while, the BMW's find you. This one found me a couple weeks ago, but I haven't had much time to work on it yet. This was supposed to be a friends project, but he lost interest and offered it to me (with title) for a price so damn low I couldn't refuse. Thanks, man! This is an early 1974 R60/6. For those of you keeping up, I now own every BMW model from the "dreaded" 1974 production year.. and I ain't dead yet! I think.. How's it look? 81,851 on the odometer. Who knows if that's accurate.. The license plate expired in 1998. Wonder why it was parked.. The engine turns over and the transmission shifts. So, that's nice. It has an oil cooler/spacer: Unfortunately, that started a little period-correct-farkle-obsession for me, and I've acquired a few little doo-dads for a future project. How often does this happen: :huh Right after I got it, I mocked up all the pieces. Lots of nuts/bolts were missing, and the wiring was completely "disassembled." Thankfully, I have a couple other sibling-bikes to compare. The tank was originally blue, but this is good enough for me. I bought all the nuts and bolts, a driveshaft/finaldrive gasket, the missing jet and missing float needle. A BMWMOA member mailed me a tool tray for free. The PO tried to disassemble the driveshaft and may have buggered up the threads on the end of it. So, I just took it to the local airhead shop and had him tighten it back down to spec. Maybe I'll worry about it in another 81000 miles. A week ago, I repaired all the wiring. Yesterday, I reassembled the whole bike, torqued everything, changed the oil, filter, transmission/finaldrive/driveshaft oil, blinker fluid, etc. The transmission drain plug had a fair amount of fuzz on it, but I'll worry about that later. Two of the four muffler mounting nuts are stripped out, but there's one bolt on either for now. I'll slap a nut on it later. The bottom part of the curved stamped steel pieces are cracked on both sides, like lots of other airheads out there. I hooked the bike up to my too-powerful battery charger, but I am only getting power to the bright (headlight) switch and the tail light. I think the "circuit board" inside the headlight might not be good.. but haven't spent any time troubleshooting it yet. Over the course of assessing the entire bike, I've noticed that I need: 1 carb ferrule/nut 13110039178/32731236644, 1 left grip 32721237811(?), 1 sidestand 46531241598, ...and I would like: 1 tool kit 2 battery side covers (red) 46631232539/46631235024. ..all in all, I have about $325 in this bike so far. Not bad at all! At the same time I bought this, I sold my friends Suzuki GS750.. she wasn't very interested in it. She's now bugging me to let her have/buy this one, but we'll see.
