Rob's BMW - Updated
By Anthony van Someren - 04 Mar 12
Rob's motorcycle is now on a bench. The subframe has been cut and the rear loop has been bent into shape awaiting welding. The loop has a good lift to it now which will stop the rear wheel hitting it. The wheels are now off and the hubs and rims are ready for powder coating in satin black. Our next job is to clean up the frame by cutting all bits off it. Then we need to make and weld the brackets for the new battery box.
This is a really well kept R75/5. It's been in Rob's family since before he was born and now Rob wants us to customize it for him. Rob shipped from the the USA where it has been in storage for some time. As Rob now lives in Italy he wanted to bring it over and use it again. Once we have brought it back to life Rob will ride it back to Italy. Anybody want to join him on the trip?
