Three airheads here. My wife's 1971 R60/5




my 1977 R100S




and the most precious of all, my 1973 R75/5 LWB, which is currently under construction as a cafe. Everything's just been painted and chromed, and now just needs to be put back together. My tranny's at Tom Cutter's, and when he's done, he gets the engine too!

Love the old airheads!

Picture from 2 years ago...since then all new tires...plus

sidecar and bike have been aligned for toe-in, lead, and attitude (of the bike, mine changes drastically with a Warsteiner ;-)

Toe-in is hardest because my son is the monkey. He keeps getting bigger ;-) I have to adjust for him, then also change the weights I put in the hack when he's not there...

This R100RS was a beauty until a drunk hit me and destroyed it:



I added dual spark heads and high compression pistons. Shew flew down the road.

I replaced the R100RS with this R75/6 and still have her:



I have to say that the R75 is the smoothest and most confortable motorcycle that I have ridden. This is a keeper!

76 R90/6..Still original paint. Seat in the photos was a borrowed seat off of a 74 while the original was re-done. I have owned this bike since 1991, bought from a very good friend who bought it new.

moshe, Steve, & Hairy - absolutely beautiful bikes! Too bad about your R100RS, Steve. It reminds me of my R80RT :-)

Count me in. 1975 R90/6 and a 1993 R100GS. If anyone rides an R65 you should check out the BMWR65.org forum. Lots of really good R65 specific technical information over there as well as some great friendly folks.

It's getting to be a pretty big group...'77 R75/7 and '80 R100RS here...('oo r1100rt also) and yes I also think the 750s are the best of the bunch.

1 more airhead here. 90,000 miles on a '93 R100RT. Great bike, s/w modified: enhanced brakes from 2000 oilhead RT, HID lights, parabellum windshield, Russell saddle, Koni shock. Planning to ride it to Int'l rally in Oregon in July.

My dad's airhead RT has probably 150,000+ miles on it. We lost track after the speedo replacement.

Ride safely.
