    Man I love these threads. Fun seeing long forgotten, used and abused bikes brought back from the dead.

    My poor 748R the day I found...and subsequently bought it. Poor thing had gone down, blown up and was left to die forgotten in the back of a body shop.

    When I bought it 4 years ago. 6,000 miles and bone stock.
    Top photo is how it is today. Been fun upgrading this bike. Nowhere near as cool as some of the vintage bikes in this thread tho...
    Alpina’s R 80 for example, that takes dedication and an incredible amount of effort.
    Keep em coming guys!
