Title: 1977 BMW R100/7 Miles Von Muncher Hellride
Post by: irk miller on Jun 29, 2016, 12:08:06
I traded for this R100 back in May. I had the notion to put it in storage and push to get my GL on the road. After a bit of introspection, I decided to flip the projects. The Beemer is a running bike that really won't take much to put it on the road- mostly peripheries. So, I figure it's about time to over complicate the situation, tear it apart and turn it into a custom bike. How custom it becomes remains to be seen, but here we go...

A more finalized front fork. With the initial mock up, I had 35mm of extra stem to figure out. So I swapped stems. The BMW stem required machining and sleeving, plus interior threading in the top to make it all work. I think the GSXR swap is easier, but I really want the longer legs.

Those pipes are an awkward length. They look like they should be about a foot shorter. Or, depending on what you're going for here, a foot longer might be cool, too.

Much thanks.  We're on the same page.  I'll probably end up doing something I shouldn't, but hopefully it all makes sense and it's a little more fun in the end. 

Doubt I'll get the FB-11, Mike.  I'm sure Matt's putting out a solid piece, but I'm pretty happy with my setup on the 7fitty.  I'm going to use buss bars and a fuse box like this...

Sorry, thread jack but I'm interested in wiring stuff. If you use that fuse box why do you need the terminal blocks?

You could just go through the fuse box, and on my XLRM I'm probably going that route.  I like the buss bars to organize the circuits and to give nice clean switch point for all power.  On the 7fitty, the buss bars are fed through the on/off switch.

My buddy AL was old, and he was a BMW guy, but far from a purist. He rode a few states over to Illinois on his 78 for a BMW show (he was probably in his late 60's at the time). When he got there he got flamed for having excel rims laced and an aftermarket exhausted mounted. They claimed that he "ruined a perfectly good BMW". He said he was there for 20 minutes before he turned around an came home lol sounds like a fun bunch of guys to hang with.

Anyhoo, got these super rare gauge pods mounted. I felt it was important not to molest the brackets, and fortunately the lathe made it work...

Somehow, between picking this bike up in Kentucky and Augusta, I have managed to lose the headlight ring, lens and deflector. To replace the three parts was going to set me back about $200. Fuck that. The bucket is in decent, but not great shape anyway. I found a headlight in the UK, Alchemy Parts, that is slightly smaller than the 8" Beemer. I machined some mounting hardware for what turns out to be a pretty good looking headlight...

Somehow, between picking this bike up in Kentucky and Augusta, I have managed to lose the headlight ring, lens and deflector. To replace the three parts was going to set me back about $200. Fuck that. The bucket is in decent, but not great shape anyway. I found a headlight in the UK, Alchemy Parts, that is slightly smaller than the 8" Beemer. I machined some mounting hardware for what turns out to be a pretty good looking headlight...

You do.  Not mine tho.  A guy brought it by to get me to give it a once over so he can sell it.  He picked it up for $400 at an estate sale- a 1978 f model.

Picked up a /7 tank at Barber for a small price and switched to a /6 seat. I shaved an inch off the rear subframe to lower the seat while also raising the rear end to level the bike out.  Also bought a mint rear fender to move back to stock...

I'm not seeing it. Maybe I need to pull the shock to I can get to the top better.

Another by-product of dropping the subframe is fender fitment. I also had to shave an inch off the front of the fender...

I had been toying around with the idea of the exact thing - keeping it around for a long trip, but there is no way it would fit with the clip ons etc.

It's got a working (when removed) sweet AM/FM cassette too and I should have all the brackets.

I'm not sure I would really have much of an idea how to properly ship this thing though

Lowering the subframe means altering the side covers, if I want to go stock. It altered the angle of the down tube enough that it pushed the covers to a weird angle.

I have a line on a $250 tank.  Still pricey as hell, but for a tank that's pretty much perfect, I think it's worth it.  This one will take a week to get right.  The whole bottom of this tank is a quarter inch of corrosion and liner mixed together.

That paint combo is Red Smoke and was the original color on my 78 r100s. All the pin was hand done by the ladies in the factory. Cool find for cheap. Those push rod seals would have been the first thing to start pissing after you rode it a couple hundred miles. Notorious for marking their territory.

the smoke under the candy red on my bike is actually a deep blue. Comes up the purplish after the candy red on top. Smoke is a pain though. But it didn't look right to me just solid red. Lots of variants out there on how to paint these tanks differently. If it has the good red liner still in it...that stuff is super tough.

Unfortunately, no views of the inside of the tank.  I paid $50 for the crap one, so at $100 it would have to be pretty bad.  Beings it came from Max BMW, i feel pretty good that it's in decent shape inside.  Having to swish in some Red Kote wouldn't be the end of the world either.

Tonight, I set out to replace the rear main, the neutral safety switch, while also lubing up the transmission input splines. The driveshaft boot looks good. I'll replace the driveshaft flange bolts, as they're one time use. I got as far as here:

.

I'm trying vinegar and baking soda first with cap and a quick connect fitting over the fuel ports and a cap in the filler tank hole.  These are so thick and reinforced, I feel good about it.  You have to be careful with the Jap tanks.  They are always super thin metal and the tunnel is not reinforced.  When I tried vinegar and baking soda on an XT tank, it mostly popped the dents out, but not all the way, and it caused the tank's tunnel to spread out and widen.  They split at the seams easily, plus spreading them and having to push them back in can cause the metal to crack.

Scratch the vinegar and baking soda idea.  Kanticoy just informed me he blew the seam on the very same tank when he tried it.  Maybe regulated air pressure, or just suck it up and pull them with studs then fill.

Hah! One of my former roommates is a paramedic, so I try to use the right words sometimes . Plus that is a cool one.

I have actually seen that technique work pretty well but it depends where the dents are, it needs to be able to push off the tunnel to be effective. I brazed studs to the old XL tank to pull the dents and had mild success with it.

Thanks, bud.  Yeah, Benny's on antibiotics and doggy aspirin.  He was walking on it within a day after we took him in.  Turns out it was an infected nail, so you guys keep a good eye on it.  The whole foot was swollen by the time I got him to the clinic.  They can turn into tumors, too, so you have to really watch them even after treatment.

Cleaned up, greased and assembled the final drive. The way these are designed, the wheel is all the way right in the swing arm. If you look straight on from the rear, the swing arm actually is offset to the left. The drawback is a very limited tire dimension. It is not uncommon for certain 120 tires to rub. A stock right side spacer is 9.2mm. BMW offered a 10.7mm spacer to accommodate wider tires, but it's no longer available. So I machined my Own to match. This gives the tire a little bit of room...

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170109/25b108d45505f21e6ea1a4307e4a7858.jpg)

The stock spacer was pretty eaten up anyway...

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170109/88f5dac6ab37afca1c26a8e39f38995b.jpg)

The rim also got painted. I don't even bother masking rims like these, as the design allows you to remove paint from the bare parts by wiping it away with acetone. It takes 1/3 the time as taping.

The lip around the badge is perfect and just two small dents remain.  A key to doing this is to slam the hammer with just enough pressure while also rocking the tool up and down, left to right and circular.

A service, paint and rebuild on the starter. Spec on the commutator is 33mm, but I'm at 32.5mm. I went ahead and chucked it up on the lathe and cleaned it with fine sand paper and scotchbrite. I'll run it anyway. I replaced the four brushes and both brass bushings. DB Electric has a $58 starter, which is $220 less than the Valeo. I ordered the DB and I will just run this one to death. I'm lacking on pics...

Just making sure you know.  When working on a commutator of any kind and/or seating brushes.  Only use flint paper, never anything w aluminum oxide. 
Because its on its last legs anyways.  If you did use something other than flint.  It will get you by.

I used scotchbrite on the commutator. I don't think there's aluminum oxide in scotchbrite. I was speaking generally about the armature, commutator and shaft.

Edit:  Nevermind.  Scotchbrite has Alox, which is a trade name for a variation of aluminum oxide. hmmm.  That DB Electric starter will be here before this hits the road.  Maybe that goes straight in.

It'll be fine.  Til its not.  Then make the change.  Just wear quicker (arcing)...and since its mostly gone anyway.  Use her up.  Its not like its spinning all day everyday...Like a fan motor or other.

Thanks, Mike.  Yeah, that's where I got the idea from.  Murray recommended them for the GL.  They aren't serviceable like the Bosch or Valeo, but at $58 just throw them away and buy a new one.  A lot of forum guys buy two and carry a spare for long hauls.

Got the DB Electric starter in and installed. If the eBay jawn is Valeo, and I think it is, I may swap them out.a cool thing about the DB is that it's about 4lbs lighter. The motor and relay is smaller. The mounting base is doubly thick, and I wanted to keep the stock hardware with the grooved bolt and wire retainer for the flywheel cover.  So I drilled out the threaded holes, and countersunk the Allen heads.

In order to utilize stock signals on a USD front end, I had to alter the stems. I opened up the fork holes with a hole saw. Then I flattened the ring and formed the edge to fit the VZ lower triple...

By flattening them out, you have removed some of the structural strength.  They may tend to sag a bit over time.  But you can cross that bridge later.  If it ever comes to it.

They won't sag.  Plus they wrap around the edge of the triple, like I mentioned.

I'm running a Thunderchild diode board, so mine will be slightly different, but essentially it's the same but for location of a couple of connectors.  Here's an example of one of many relays (starter relay) I have removed...

Looks like more is in order for this sick little shepherd.  One obvious thing going on in the video is an exhaust leak.  But more so going on with the right side is leaky valve guides and valves.  I was able to get a good seat on both valves with a lap, and put in an order for two bronze guides.  I machined chamfered retainers for the both sides of the exhaust to hopefully seal them up.  We will see.

Thick slather of exhaust goop my mechanic used. Was loads of it until I cleaned some off. Kinda like a paste grease. He's old school so I guess it's the norm. Never leaked though. Had to cut one nut off so new ones both sides.

I was a vehicle safety inspection mechanic in Mt. Lebanon/Pittsburgh for a few years and I had never seen or used muffler mud before there. I swear by that stuff now. Saved many a folk from having to buy new catalytic converters and mufflers because they had a "exhaust leak". I love PA but some of their safety rules are a bit over the top.

  It's a used throttle that I got on eBay for $150.  MaxBMW sells complete units for $263, but you'll need the face with the switches to swap over.

We're on the home stretch. My oil pressure switch leaked like a sieve, so I went on this grand search. Most are a cross reference for a later 60s Beetle, but they're 10 x 1mm, where mine is 12 x 1.5mm. Such is my luck, no one locally carries that switch. About 20 BMW cars since 69 use it too, but with the 10mm and 12mm option.  Fortunately, I'm going home for Easter and an AutoZone 7 miles from my mom has the 12mm switch. In the meantime, I threaded a 10mm switch to 8mm and turned down a bolt to be a temporary adapter. I'm just trying to get some miles in to tune it and test it.

On to the seat:

Since I cut an inch out of the subframe, some geometry changed for the seat and side covers. I already did the side covers, but the seat didn't get the treatment until today.

There's a seller out of the UK that sells a reproduction seat cover for around $50US.  I figured at that price it's worth a try.  It's not as good as factory, and lacks the back emblem, but otherwise it's well worth the price.  I got the new cover put on last night, then rode it into work for the first time this morning.  It still needs paint, but I plan to put plenty of miles on it in the meantime.

Now that I looked around. Black and a deep blue would interesting mock up. If he is throwing candy over silver flake a nice flake silver tape over pin with black or blue would be sick.

I hate gold, so I promise you there won't be gold stripes.  LOL.   I've considered white with the motorsport stripes, though.  At this point, I'm 95% sure the tank will be red candy with smoke and the pinstripes to match the motorsport badge- dark blue and light blue.  The more I look at those pics, Mike might be right with the dominant stripe as dark blue.

Still altering side covers to get the lines the way I like them. This time I cut them up and shaved the ridges out of the center of covers and altered the angle of the bottom of the covers to better reflect the tank lines.

Here's the before pic for reference:

My wiring wasn't the best job in the world.  Being unfamiliar with the system on these, I didn't do a good job planning ahead. The front end was way too cluttered and just a mess. So I took a day and re-did it. In doing so, I took the opportunity to move the key switch to the side cover, while also moving the fuse panel and turn signal relay to behind the battery.

I also added a tab to the frame and drilled the side covers for a grommet and screw. I'm not at all a fan of the stock strap method.

Updates are never really dead are they? After a season of riding, I’ve come to dislike the length and geometry of the VZ forks. Plus, their ride may be too cruiser like. So, I’ll attempt to fix that with TL1000r legs...

I had a couple mil to make up on the top of the forks, so I shimmed the triple.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/c91e25956dd65a1365c3eb8090b54497.jpg)

The lower fork clamps are 32mm and the TL axle is 25mm, so I machined a sleeve and pressed a KZ axle bolt in for the left side.
