Found anywhere is acceptable : in a barn, garage, ditch, or field Maybe someone has already done this?....if so , maybe it is buried...... I have a love for "Beemer Archeology" (sp?). Amazing what teasures some folks will let deteriorate under their noses. Show us what you've found and if you're not too embarrassed...what you paid for it.......... I'll start here............ BMW 1973 R75/5 Short Wheel Base 1/2 a Toaster This is the "bright" side. Other side is missing the engine top end. Actually had some hope when I heard the description over the phone. Thought it might be a restoration possibility. Hope was dashed after I saw it. After driving 300 miles over to L.V. to pick it up. A P.O. had really screwed around with a lot of things. The speedometer had been cracked open and he scratched each "dummy light" function next to each light on the dial face. ( what a great idea!) Frame had stuff welded to it and holes drilled in it. All the pretty aluminum signal housings had been damaged and the front ones had holes drilled in them for the fairing supports. Had a Suzuki tail light and some odd Asian throttle control grafted on. But the headlight bucket was nice, the only part on the bike that was worth much. A BMW with "mini ape hangers" (ya gotta be kidd'in me) , an overstuffed shag carpet (or towel) seat cover. I paid $350.00 dollars for this and that was about $300.00 more than it was worth. Was able to sell off the small salvageable bits to make up my purchase price and a made a couple hundred dollars to cover my travel costs. All in all this was an exercise in futility. The "dark" side. Dig that trailer hitch, mounted to the fender with a big ugly chunk of steel run up under the fender to reinforce it. The left side muffler / header was twisted in a knot from a crash. Appeared that the left jug was ripped off in the wreck. The right jug /top end was actually in pretty good shape and went to a new home. Basically a pile of junk.
