Long story won't go here.

Bottom line: My late friend's 1971 BMW R75/5 with buckled frame and ground-up rear gearbox/hub. Made his widow an offer and she accepted it happily.

"hunchback" frame indications are clearly visible; this was Nacho with his fresh paint, back about 2002...


How I got the bike last November...


Frame & rear gearbox replaced, awaiting petcocks and battery...
It ain't braggin' if ya done it.

got quoted $500 for an oil change, tune and carb balance on the Vmax the other week....I can do the rest myself so I bought a set of carb gauges for $85 on ebay so now I can do my own full services.
did the carbs the other day, a lot easier than I thought and what a difference it makes

short fast loud, three things punk rock and vmaxs have in common

Good call. Worth it in so many ways.  Are your mixture screws still at the stock setting on that beast?

It's actually a 2011. One owner has 47,000 miles. I'm loving it so far

Not directly MC related, but certainly the best purchase I've made for my shop.  12,000 BTU propane heater.  I'm getting a 100# tank from the local propane supplier, it'll cost me $45 to fill and I shouldn't have to do that more than once a year.  We tried the electric heater thing, but even "efficient" ones made the electric meter look like a helicopter.  This should be more efficient for my use.  This year we'll be here all winter, but most years we'll be in warmer climes during the coldest months.

Good stuff, Corey.  I have a similar unit and it does the job well as far as Augusta cold goes.
