Hello fellow Airheads!

I picked up this sadly neglected and horribly abused '77 R100/7 on Pender Island BC for $1500 back in Sep '09, to be my winter project. So far, I've stripped her down to the very last nut and washer and am restoring her from the ground up. It's an expensive and slow-going process, but you can follow if you're interested at: http://s41.photobucket.com/albums/e293/Margaree/R100%20PROJECT/ and http://s41.photobucket.com/albums/e293/Margaree/R100%20REBUILD/


Happy New Year !

Whoo-hooo! I'm encouraged by the number of airheads on this forum. Let's start documenting and sharing tips on keeping these bikes running.

Thanks Vinny, I had a local guy in our vintage club paint it for me. I asked him if he had ever done a BMW smoke paint job. He told me he had never done one
but always wanted to. I supplied him with lots of photos I collected off the web and the body parts. Months and months later i had my paint done. I basically told him
to call me when "he" was happy with it. wink

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.
