BMW R90s with curved Conti exhaust — what a sweet sound.!! Conti’s on an R90s
My great customer John Pomeroy set out on a little cross country adventure– This was a great dream of Johns and I was happy to help him along the way. John learned many things about Mimi along the way. MIMI and the sunrise on the Pacific coast highway– a pretty sight At the Alamo!
BMW R75/5 excellent condition. Everything in solid working order. Recent top-end work. Paint finish is excellent. Fully serviced and ready to go.
My Friend and customer did a little trip to the factory then throgh the Swiss alps on his Lemans 1 — next year I will meet him!
So…… A R75/6 is nice but, a tiny bit of work makes the motor a tad more peppy…. 1000cc Siebrock kit completely rebuilt heads w Black diamond valves, new hard valve seats — R90s intake spigots installed rebuilt – rejetted –38mm Dellortos of course – I know this is a bad video— but… this is my shop mate Tyler pulling a 2nd gear wheelie — without the clutch ……. just a roll on 2nd gear roll on wheelie!!!!…. pretty sick
Billy Joel thankfully does not own every V50 Monza!!!— here is a little beauty that got a full paint job and a nice long service that included replacing 2 missing motor mont bolts!!!!! crazy.. Small blocks are so dam fun to ride… this is a hell of a good looking bike!! All stickers were reproduced Sexy
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 Cylinders before Clinders after with… Read more →
Steven and his SP1000 have covered serious miles… anytime he is in New York its always a pleasure to see him and here stories from the road..I still owe him a tee-shirt! I THINK THIS BIKE HAS COVERED SOMETHING LIKE 50K MILES IN THE LAST 2 YEARS… SICK!
I have been working on this bike for many years now… when it originally came to the shop the timing was whacked out, the carbs had the wrong springs in them!!! and it puked from every orifice—- it still pukes a bit– but slowly but shurey all the issues are getting fixed– it might look a little funky but it runs like a Motherfuvker now!!
Some people actually still ride vintage Ducati’s in NY — this is exactly how the owner wants the bike– A rider.. not a show pony — he rides the piss out of this 900… And I am very happy to service it.
