The Missouri Airheads recently completed three-year project. Well, we’re not really that slow and there’s a story. Three years ago a member brought a great running 1977 R75 in and the club totally disassembled it. Each component was carefully removed, inspected and all wiring and bolts were marked, bagged and tagged. But no matter how you say it, the club successfully transformed a perfect running 36k mile Airhead into a Basket Case. It took three years and the bike found a new owner, but from start to finish the “Tech Day” Airhead was finally completed in time for the Rolling Rally to the BMW National Rally. From a Bing rebuild and tuning, final paint polishing to the complete custom rebuild- A special thanks to Euromotoelectrics.com for supporting the effort as well as all the friends and members for the group effort. The idea was to rebuild the bike as a vintage Airhead and improve the brakes, wiring and comfort. The bike had to have great, usable luggage for Airhead events. Along the build I was fortunate to find two additional R65s that were basically abandoned years ago and of course...no titles. I will end up with three bikes again, but each will have a specific purpose. This bike is the "Bagger", but I have already started aligning the parts for an 80s GS style build. This will basically be all of the worst stuff that is left over from the other two...long front end...spoke wheels and the like. The last bike will most likely be a Hot Rod that will be comfortable enough to ride into town or bike night. Although these bikes were basket cases or abandoned, all the good parts will be used and the stock stuff stored in the shop or given to Airhead club members as needed. ***WARNING*** If you are a BMW Traditionalist...this thread is not for you. I chop up bikes, parts and used multiple Honda and Harley parts on this build. Multiple BMWs (three) were used as donor bikes to make this bike. I'm talking low mile, vintage bikes...If you are opposed to this, please look somewhere else. The Internet is a big place...Best wishes.
