BMW R60/5 … Just a small top-end job

BMW R60/5 … Just a small top-end job

We had noticed pretty poor compression on the left cylinder, of course because its a BMW it still ran great– but, Joe really cares for this baby and it was time for a top-end job….. so, we did everything — at first startup after barley half a revolution it started up!!!! not bad! — compression now is perfect — idle is perfect ….very sweet little motor…. Joe did his due diligence and did the 500miles in 2 weekends

Heads completely refurbished with hardened valve seats, new guides, new black diamond valves–

Stainless pushrod tubes of course

New BMW pistons, bored cylinders — look closely at the photos — cylinder fin was also repaired perfectly
